US Paratrooper, Kneeling
Warriors, 1/35 Scale
Assembled, Painted & Reviewed
by Andrew Judson
Warriors' latest review subject is another Paratrooper figure that will compliment the US 101st Airborne figure reviewed last week. The release of this figure was very welcome to me, and I am sure it will be to many other figure modellers too.
Warriors' "US Paratrooper, Kneeling" comprises five pieces in crisply detailed resin. The breakdown is a head, two arms, rifle with hands cast on, and the main body (torso and legs). In my opinion, the head is not as well done as the previously reviewed 101st Airborne figure, but is still presented to a very high standard.
The body is crammed with detail that should keep most figure painters busy for a while. The rifle is also very nice with the hands attached. This made alignment of the arms much easier than it might otherwise have been.
Be careful when removing the casting block from the rifle as this part is quite delicate.
The kneeling pose is very versatile. The figure could be used on an armoured vehicle, a building ruin, taking cover behind a tree etc.
I painted the figure using Tamiya and Vallejo paints for the body, and Testor's Model Master enamels for flesh tones.
Warriors' US Paratrooper, Kneeling, is another high quality figure that I would recommend to anybody.
Thanks to Warriors for the review sample
