These are photos of the new Caesar WWII German Panzergrenadier set. They are soft plastic, one piece figures in 1/72nd scale.
These figures are molded in dark grey plastic and are a mid war army figure. They are similar in kit to the old Airfix German Infantry which at 35 years old are really starting to show their age.
The detail on these figures is fantastic, I particularly like the submachine guns. There are several SMG poses since they are Panzergrenadiers. No heavy weapons, no panzerfausts or bazookas, these are too early war for that. Troops in these uniforms were seen all during the war, but became more rare as the new uniforms and boots were issued. I have two of these sets so far and plan on getting many more. I will probably issue a few metal machine guns, panzerfausts and bazookas to stiffen them up for late war combat. Highly recommended, an excellent set.
