Stormtroops

Strelets*R which has the weirdest boxes in the industry. This is their new 1/72nd scale soft plastic World War One German Stormtroops.

Stormtroops often fought in the trenches; hand to hand. They used issue and improvised weapons.



The mace made a return for close quarters battle.



This is the two man flamethrower team. The F-T was very complicated and took two men to handle.



Wire cutter, grenade thrower, and pole charge the tools of the man who wants to cross no man's land barbed war in the dark of night.

I think I will get some of these and use them for a future war scenario...steampunk style.
And yep...strelets do have some of the strangest box art. I look forward to when they bring out the sets in the boxes to see what they have come up with .
Cheers

Their WWI troops, particularly the Stormtroops and ones with gas masks are very Steam Punk.

Sometimes the boxes seem to have very little to do with the contents.

You said it Biff!
