Canadian Airborne Regiment

I have always wanted a set that I could use to reenact all the famous Canadian battles of the 80's : from the famous defense of the northern tundra, to the murdering of eskimos. It is about time someone made a detailed and well put together set of figures.

1)Accuracy : 5 - Very accurate with a ton of items that almost end up cluttering the figure but work in harmony to give a great amount of detail.

2)Design : 5 - A level of detail that is unprecidented in other sets makes up this set.

3)Standard : 5 - Fits well with other figures of its type.

4)Uniqueness : 5 - Highly unique as mentioned above.

5)Usability : 5 - Highly usable. Very easy to tell the differences between each figure.

Total : 5 out of 5 Stars - With all joking aside this set is a really good standard for future sets. It feels like a bunch of army men you could buy at a store and use it.

Estonian Soldiers in Desert Camo

Estonia for most people is a small nation that makes it easier to remember lavivia and Lithuania by. Nudged in with these nations is the small land of Estonia--and they have a military by the way! Xaxk gives us a grand example of the infantry of the nation.

1)Accuracy : 5 - Based off what i've seen of soldiers of Estonian decent these seem to be very accurate. The weapons are what you would expect, and the equipment looks right. The one down side seems to be the tall grass on the bases. Even in the middle of mesopotania the grass would most likely not be this high.

2)Design : 5 - Very well designed. Each variation of troop is changed and each item is replicated so that you can reuse that piece later on.

3)Standard : 5 - Will fit into pretty much any Iraqi/Modern game with any of the other ones on the site.

4)Uniqueness : 5 - This is the only set of these soldiers on the site and thus very accurate, and well created.

5)Usability : 4 - I mark down by one for one reason only : It is extremely hard to tell soldiers apart. The only disgintishing feature would be sunglasses. So if you were to play this outside a squad based game you'd still have to print the names on the bottom.

Total : 4.8 out of 5 Stars - Great set that could use some distingishing features.

Micro Scale Leopards

Micro armor has been a present force in the archives of juniorgeneral. The armor lurks behind a forest of thousands of their bigger cousins and recently has come out of the shadows with the creation of its own form. Maple Leaf Warrior has designed a wonderful set of commonly exported leopards.

1)Accuracy : 5 - Based on drawings and pictures of the leopards I have to say these are very accurate given the small size. MLW has been able to maintain a good amount of detail while giving a lot of nice camo. color.

2)Design : 3 - My biggest qualm with this set is the use of the dark tan on the leopard 2A6M which may be accurate but the design is not very unifying. Because of this the design aspect gets a little knock off. The rest of the figures are very well designed in purpose and color

3)Standard : 4 - These figures fit the standard of other micro armor on the site. The only thing that they lack is the problem that all micro armor lacks-a unifying scale. These may or may not fit with other figures on the site.

4)Uniqueness : 5 - We can safely assume that these are the only micro scale leopards on th site right now.

5)Usability : 5 - This set is ready to be printed. Click the button and you could have a page of them right away.

Total : 4.4 out of 5 Stars - A great set that lacks a little polish but overall is very well done.
