    Stuart Hale, of Stormtrooper Miniatures recently released "Frozen", a German Infantryman in the winter of 41 or 42. Stuart has really captured that frozen look with this kit and Mark Bennett brought him alive with his superb painting of the box art. The kit is comprised of 9 resin parts.

    Arriving in a heavy sturdy white cardboard box with all the parts sealed inside a zip-lok bag and then placed into a bubble-wrap envelope. The color box art photograph on the box gives the painter a color reference to go with a written color guide also included in the kit.

    Conclusion:
    Another excellent kit from Stormtroopers requiring very little clean-up prior to painting. Excellent detail as we have come to expect from Stormtrooper MIniatures. Highly recommended.
