Erwin Rommel is one of the most famous and respected German military commanders of WWII. Born in 1891, he was dubbed the ‘Desert Fox’ for his exploits in North Africa, for this was the arena in which he reached legendary status. He led the Deutsches Afrikakorps with great professional skill from 1941 onwards when Italian forces were on the ropes. Despite having minimal forces, the German field marshal succeeded in besieging and capturing Tobruk, and advancing across North Africa all the way to Egypt. Some of the most important battles of this time were at El Alamein against his nemesis Bernard Montgomery. Finally, with ravaged supply lines and shortages of personnel and equipment, the Afrikakorps was forced to give up the fight in May 1943. Dragon’s newest 1/35 scale figure set features the famous Desert Fox along with three of his staff officers in full swing in 1942.

The four figures contained in the box are beautifully sculpted in plastic, and the one representing Rommel is an extremely good likeness. He is dressed in his characteristic leather greatcoat, and he’s shown in typical pose as he directs his forces with consummate skill. His three staff officers are based on photographic sources, so they too possess realistic poses. All wear uniform elements characteristic of the period and the desert theater. Although they don’t come with personal weapons, they do carry suitable items such as binoculars, and they wear their medal decorations and hats. The sharp sculpting of these figures takes injection molding to the outer limits of its possibilities. This 1/35 figure set of Rommel and his staff in action lends itself to a dramatic North African diorama scene.
