German Soldier in Zeltban Smock
Assembled, Painted & Reviewed
by Andrew Judson
This figure sees me return to the military subject area again, and what a great figure to come back to!
The Hornet/Wolf range has always had a good name for quality figures and this one certainly lives up to the reputation. The pose of the figure is nice and relaxed. His helmet is full of apples to add a little extra interest for the viewer.
The box contains three parts cast in greay green resin for the figure himself, and two more parts in white metal for the weapons.
Minimial cleanup was required and assembly went very smoothly.
I painted the figure entirely with Valejo paints, making the figure represent a member of the Hitlerjugend. I chose this unit because, when it is placed next to other 1/35 scale figures, he is a lot shorter; but also because his facial features looked boyish to me.
In summary, this Wolf figure is of very high quality and I would recommend it to all figure enthusiasts - very enjoyable to build and paint!
Thanks to Brett Williiams from the Military Workshop in Brisbane for the review sample
