The Polish firm’s blossoming military figure ranges have six new items relevant for World War Two and before.
Figures from ToRo often depict Polish troops…but not always. Its latest releases push the boundaries further in terms of subject and offer the means of depicting scenes (or producing individual display pieces) from two 20th Century conflicts. The firm's September 1939 series is now better off for three items with an equine theme, plus a diorama feature:
35F151 German Cavalryman (1) shooting (€33)
This set provides a single German soldier firing, in seated position, from behind his steed… which itself is lying down. While the sculpting of the rider is good, with convincing clothing folds/creases and crisp belt gear, it’s the horse that steels the show here. The saddle – and other tack such as the cheek pieces, headstall, browband and noseband – are all well rendered, but you’ll need to add actual reins from a suitable medium. Strips of lead foil or layered masking tape could suffice.
