New Modern Forces by AIP

Armies in Plastic, The one company brave enough to delve into WWI plastic figures, is releasing some excellent looking Modern Forces figures. There are 12 new poses in all, each done in three different colors. They have been adapted from the metal Figarti figures, which is exciting to see. I also really liked their previous Indians and Rangers sets which were adapted from John Jenkins figures if I remember correctly. Hopefully this is a trend that they continue, as there is a wealth of poses from both companies that I would love to see done in plastic.

I'm gonna gets several sets of these. I've always enjoyed other modern sets done by Airfix and ESCI, and these should fit right in with those. Actually, now that I think of it, I'll be interested to see the size difference, as those Airfix and ESCI figures were 1/35 scale.... meh, who cares. They say they'll be shipping by the beginning of February.
