Update on the Development of the 28mm Late War German hard plastic sprues

Today we received an update from the Wargames Factory on the hard plastic 28mm Late War German sprues under development. The first photo below shows some additional details of the figures. Here is what they are saying about this sprue: "This is a 5-figure sprue with multi-part Germans in a variety of advancing/fighting poses - maybe one crouching? Ideally, the set has extra heads (bare and with helmets and 1-2 NCO), separate arms with some open hands to have separate weapon swaps. Separate packs. Grenade and sub-machine gun options."

And now they are saying there is going to be an MG-42 team to accompany the first sprue of infantrymen. Here is what they say about that: "This is a 5-figure sprue with multi-part Germans in a variety of advancing/fighting poses. Ideally, the set has extra heads (bare and with helmets and 1 NCO), separate arms with some open hands to have separate weapon swaps. Separate packs. Grenade and sub-machine gun options. 1 MG-42, ammo carriers, loader. Works with my other entry to make a full squad."

Both of these sprues are going to sell for $5.00 each. This seems like a pretty nice deal for anyone looking to get into gaming WWII, or just expanding their collection.
Unfortunately, I already have what I consider to be a complete collection of WWII "sausage eaters," otherwise I would definitely be buying some of these. Incidently, my WWII Germans are metals from Black Tree Design which are also very nice figures.

I have read some negatives about the wargames factory plastics, yet every photo I see is superb!
