While the prime purpose of rangers during the French and Indian War of 1755 to 1760 was raiding and intelligence gathering, they sometimes took on more conventional roles, and protecting the very vulnerable supply lines for the main British Army was one such task. This set clearly depicts an ambush of such a convoy, with a number of rangers and natives plus a wagon.
All the ranger figures are new to this set. However they are in exactly the same style as those to be found in the Roger's Rangers set, so we would refer the reader to that review rather than repeat all the comments here. These new poses include some quite surprising choices, given the subject matter. The third figure seems much too relaxed for someone under attack, and we couldn't think of a particularly good reason why the fourth man would be raising his musket above his head. The fifth figure is seated, and shown propped up against the wheel of the wagon on the box artwork. We can only assume that he is wounded or taking cover, but we did not like the pose.
The six natives are exactly the same figures as those in the set of Rangers and Canoes, so again there is no need to repeat our comments here.
The wagon is new, and remarkably comes in just two pieces (the forward axle and pole, and the bodywork and rear axle). It is a very simple little model and not particularly convincing, but its main feature is it is made in the same highly-soft plastic as the rangers, which is very far from ideal for such models.
Lastly there is the vac-formed base. This is considerably larger than our photograph suggests, being 212mm by 127mm. There is not much to say about this, except that it is quite generic and so quite useful.
We were not impressed by the wagon in this set, and nor were we taken with the new ranger poses, which as mentioned elsewhere are not ideal in terms of accuracy. As a result this is not a product to set the heart racing. It provides a few ranger poses and some accessories but that's about all.
