Master Box has shared initial photos of its two work-in-progress kits, one depicting a calm scene, while the other featuring soldiers in the midst of a gun battle.
  • On the Great Plains (35189), another set from the Indian Wars Series featuring two figures.
  • Under Fire (35193), featuring four modern US infantry figures engaged in a firefight.

The Plains Indians look awesome to me. Can't wait to see them sitting in a box on my porch!

I like both sets. The modern set would make a good action packed vignette with a suitable urban base

Are those "Great Plains" vignette shots CAD renderings? If that's the plastic product, then it's fantastic quality!!

Bill, judging by the load, helmets and SCAR rifles I'd say the infantry is SOF. Regular ARMY and Marines didn't wear the high cut helmet and the SCAR wasn't used in combat by them either. I might be wrong but that's my two cents. Regards, Eric

While not a fan of modern subjects (even less of the Indian wars???), I am a big fan of MB who once again have come up trumps. The modern set is a dio in one with the wounded guy being treated while his buddy puts down covering fire. It would appear that they've taken the throne as the most interesting 1/35th plastic figure manufacturer. They leave Dragon standing these days , literally as that seems to be all Dragon releases anymore, Germans standing still. Either MB has a very capable research and development team full of ideas or they actually take note of what modellers think and say on forums like this. Hopefully they'll start turning out WW2 British and American infantry in the same sort of dynamic poses. Just basic, run of the mill infantry in action unlike DML's releases like a Private soldier called Hans in Kampfgruppe Flumpetymaus on 28th September 1943 just after he's had his dinner and is thinking about his indigestion hence not running about as he feels sick. This is what we want as figure builders (well I do anyway) more kinetic posing as with multiples of say three diferent but related kits the opportunities are endless. Keep it up MB!

If one wants to do extensive kitbashing, it's the Masterbox arms and legs that prove valuable as Live-Resin could practically provide the rest of the gear and body part materials.
