First Glance: Minifigs are one of the ranges I always love to review. Not because I am a big fan of the figures (I’m not), but because the review practically writes itself. Except for their horses (which I do love) their figures are always well proportioned, beautifully cast, and attractively priced. The AWI range is no exception

Anatomy: The ability of the sculptor shows in every figure. No matter the range, the anatomy is very good. Bones don’t bend, joints are always where they’re supposed to be, and everything is generally the right size. The faces tend to be a bit angular (there are some very strong jaws in the line) but paint up well enough.

The Finer Things: Minifigs have a moderate amount of detail, nicely done in a low contrast style. For me this makes them harder to paint but your mileage may vary. There is one strange thing here - the bayonets are much too long. This one measures in at a full 8 mm! That would go through you, your buddy, and your buddy’s pack!

Second Chances: In case you hadn’t already figured it out, they’re all the same (that’s a good thing).

As I’ve said numerous times, my issue with Minfigs is two fold. First, a lot of their poses have a “mime-leaning-into-the-wind” quality which just don’t work for me. Second, they don’t have any variety within a pose. But these are both matters of taste. Look at the pictures and decide for yourself.
