|REVIEWER:||Scott Van Aken|
|NOTES:||Four figures and equipment|
Dragon has released plenty of German and Soviet infantry plastic figures in its 1/35 scale series…but seldom together. The latest figure set is such a rare combination. The set includes two German and two Russian infantrymen all clad in winter clothing. Germany mounted a massive invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941, and the powerful force’s momentum took troops to the very gates of Moscow. However, few expected to still be fighting when the freezing weather and bitter cold hit later that year, let alone the successive winters as German forces were forced into a bloody and drawn-out retreat. The dreadful winter conditions that both sides had to contend with are now the stuff of lore, and it’s from such a desperate period of winter fighting that this current figure set emanates.
