Wish to Christ Dragon hadn't changed thier box art. The old stuff was so much better. Nice group of figures and no doubt with Dragons latest generation mouldings they will be pretty sweet.

Yeah - the "new improved" box art is pretty crap isn't it?! And about as inspiring as the rubbish Airfix boxes of the 1980s that showed just a (usually poorly done) finished model sitting on top of a generic blueprint.

I much prefer the older boxes with Ron Volstad's excellent artwork.

It appears that all four figures cannot be used simultaneously in the same diorama, as two are paras that have just landed, and the other two must be from the amphibious landing - two completely different units. At least the paras can be combined with any of the several other Fallschirm figure sets from Dragon. And the other two guys look like they could be Gebirgsjager.
