LW have produced some really bad sets in the past, but a first inspection of this set promised much better. Indeed, the figures are nicely sculpted and thoroughly reasonable. However, any cheers would be premature as the more experienced will have noticed something very familiar about these figures. A closer inspection confirms our worst fears - these are pirate copies of someone else's work. They are nearly all downsized copies of Esci Russian infantry with weapons removed and some adjustments to arm position etc. It must be said that a good job has been made of it, but nonetheless someone is making money from this sort of activity, so you have been warned.
