5.0 out of 5 stars Classics 23 Mar 2013
By Joe Lee
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought two sets, one for my son to play with and the other for me to paint. Obviously, the other reviewers have overlooked painting as a substitute for the 'nasty plastic'. Even if you can't paint, you can wash the models in warm, soapy water to remove the factory finish.

Great figures for play and wargaming, in good poses, with a kneeling Bren gunner and an officer. Much more accurate, lifelike and individual than the supermarket kind. A lick of paint makes them even better to raid radar installations and dispatch Jerry sentries.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better selection than others. 16 Feb 2010

A few bad experiences recently with Airfix.
Poorer quality plastic, broken bits and limited selection of poses.
This product wasn't so bad. The plastic is still shiny and nasty looking but the poses were good with a better variety.
I get the feeling this more the one-off but, in this particular case, it was OK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 24 Aug 2013

I bought these for my 7 year old grandson and the hours spent away from technology and put into painting has been well worth it. I recommend it to everyone, boys and girls. Also teaching him the history of the wars involved in the soldiers he was painting is educational too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to Amazon next time!! 9 Jan 2012
By Dodwell
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently bought this set from nearby Worcester where I realise I was ripped off at 7!! I thought the shopkeeper looked a tad guilty.

I bought them originally to practice my painting techniques, but as a set of figures, they are not too bad at all. True, the plastic is brittle and shiny, but, as I have painted them and don't intend to play with them, there is no problem.

The number of poses is good and imaginative, especially the Bren gun toting men and the Captain, who appears to be about to aim and fire his revolver or has just done so.

Good mouldings, very little flash and the figures take paint easily, if you was them in ordinary washing up liquid first.

All in all, first class.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shame on you Hornby 29 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I had masses of these soldiers as a child and had years of enjoyment from them. My 8 year old son inherited my somewhat battered collection and has enjoyed playing with them as much as I did. I decided to add a few boxes as stocking fillers for him for Christmas. How the quality of these soldiers has deteriorated. They are poorly moulded in a tacky shiny green plastic and are nowhere near the quality of my 25+ year old collection. Shame on Hornby for allowing the quality to deteriorate so badly. These are not much better than the bags of toy soldiers that can be bought in any pound shop for a fraction of the price.
