    I like the pose...It looks like he's about to, or has just taken a shot at "Jerry". He would look much better though, peering around a building corner or such.

    The cup on the pack is a nice touch as well. (y)

    I think both elbows are a bit high which makes the whole pose look odd, but apart from that, and the brim on the helmet being too big it looks pretty nice.
    According to the H&C british soldier book machetes were sometimes issued to vickers and bren crews, I guess they could be useful in the hedgerows.

    I bought this figure at Euromilitaire, and I can only recommend it, it's quite good (y) , the sculpting is quite "clean" and well cast. I hope Paul is going to release more WWII allied stuff - he was talking about some interesting projects he had in mind.
    The pose is actually quite good - the correct way to hold a rifle when advancing into enemy territory, ready to fire.
    Guy, do Miniature Alliance have an UPDATED website where we can see all the rest of their stuff as well ? (I only know of a site where you can see their first three releases)

    That is the only site I am aware of Johan. Not being updated is why I haven't included it with the News Releases.

    I have to agree with Leigh: the elbows look like they're too high, as if the guy's holding his arms up while firing. Doesn't look that natural.

    .... (sigh)... Negative waves, I suppose, eh ? ;) :lol:

    It's really a beautiful figure you know - and hey, why don't you get in touch with Paul, he's really very keen on D-Day subjects, ... US Airborne for example. ;)

    As Guy mentioned, there is only one known site for Miniature Alliance, and it's quite unfortunate that they haven't touched it in a long while. The design was very promissing.

    As for the figure, it is true that the pose may look a little odd, however, IMHO, the elbows are not set in an unatural position. I guess it's a question of opinion, nothing more... ;)
