Sci-Fi Greatcoat Shock Troops

I finally received a box of the new Sci-Fi Shock Troops in Greatcoats from Wargames Factory (courtesy of TheWarStore!). Apparently there were some delays due to shipping from China, as they were originally due out in May.

This is the first product I've gotten from Wargames Factory, and I'm pleased with the quality. My only complaint is the lack of bases for the figures. They have a semi-base molded onto their feet, but I find they can rarely stand up on their own once the arms and weapons are added.

That aside, I'm very pleased with the variety of "bits" on the sprue. Each sprue contains three bodies, 14 heads, 6 rifles (3 each of two different styles), a pistol, a flamer, and a grenade launcher. In addition, there are three ammo pouches, two knives, two canteens, and a holstered pistol. Quite a load for a single sprue!

I look forward to getting this bunch assembled & painted, as well as seeing what Wargames Factory releases next.
