Nemrod is a Historex company specialising in 1/35 scale resin figures of WWII
subjects in Northern and Eastern Europe.
Nemrod's SS Soldier is supplied in 14 grey resin pieces. The body, legs and
feet are the main part. The arms, head, helmet and equipment are provided as
separate pieces. Locating pins are in place to assist the correct positioning of
the arms. Another nice touch is that the trigger hand is cast directly onto the
MP 44 machine gun.
Casting quality is excellent. The drape of the fabric is realistic, and the
overall detail is very crisp. In particular, check out the amazingly thin handle
on the canteen (clearly visible in the picture below). Casting blocks do not
look too imposing, but take special care not to damage the rear lip of the
helmet when removing that part.
Facial expression is neutral, and should look good after careful painting.
The figure is wearing gloves and a scarf, so a minimum of flesh is presented for
painting. You'll need the extra time for painting the "peas pattern" uniform
The pose of the figure is quite versatile. He is leaning forward against an
object, peering out to the side. On the boxtop, the figure is posed on the rear
deck of a tank destroyer, but he would look just as natural behind a wall or a
Instructions are not provided, but the nice colour picture on the boxtop will
be a useful guide for colours.
This very high quality figure from the Nemrod range will look great as a
standalone figure, or as an accessory for an armoured vehicle.
