Accompanying the set of Zulus comes this set of British Infantry, which is once again a scaled down copy of this manufacturer's 1:32 figures.
As with the Zulus, these figures are of the highest quality, beautifully sculpted and looking very natural. The private standing firing is a good example - he is clearly leaning into the shot, making him much more realistic than the stiff upright posture we usually see. The figure thrusting down with his bayonet is also very well done, as such a manoeuvre is very difficult to model without either having mould undercut or large amount of ugly surplus plastic. The marching figure carries full kit, but none of the others do, as you would expect.
The detail is crisp and there is little or no surplus plastic to remove. Of course these figures can be used for many British colonial episodes in Africa and India during the later part of the 19th Century.
The corresponding Esci set boasts almost twice as many poses, and is a fine set, but for quality of figures this excellent set is the top of the pile.
