"Green Devils" Vignette
Reviewed by Terry Ashley
Warriors' "Green Devils" is a fully self contained mini-vignette set with a base, ruined building and three figures included; all cast in blemish free cream resin. Of the 21 resin pieces included only two are for the base and building with the other 19 devoted to the three figures.
The Base and Building
base is a circular affair measuring 10cm (approx 4”) in diameter with a
section of roadway and sidewalk plus a bit of rubble included with about
1/3 left vacant for the house ruin to be fitted. The detail is very crisp
as the base is cast in resin and not plaster. This should come up well
There is detail on both the front and back of the building wall with a small section of first floor flooring with nice definition of the broken floor timbers.

Everything is included in what is an impressive single piece casting which has the double brick walls, interior wall panelling and fittings as well a rubble on the floors.
All that is needed is careful painting to produce a useful backdrop to the figures.
three figures all have excellent uniform and equipment details moulded on.
Each figure follows a common formula of full body with only the arms and
heads separate. Much of the personal equipment is moulded onto the body
which gives a good fit as they blend in with the clothing. It does make
the painting a bit trickier but the overall effect is worth the effort.
The three figures come all packed into the one plastic bag
giving you a bit of ‘jig-saw-puzzle’ exercise to match up the correct arms
and heads with only the box top painting as a guide. I would have liked to
see each figure in a separate bag, but this is probably a personal
preference and doesn’t detract from the figures themselves.
