Best of Soldier keyword guest review: Elite corps & commanders

July 29, 2011


Sorry, readers, for missing so many days of updates! I was unusually busy back in the week when this series started. Then my DSL modem catastrophically failed (turns out it had been recalled years ago, so I got a free replacement). Then I had to scrape up cash to catch up on my internet bill. […]

Best of Soldier keyword guest review: Lieutenants

July 5, 2011


Having covered the infantry last time, now Morrison looks at the commissioned pieces, Lieutenants: These guys can hold their own on the field and are great investments for mid-range points. ________________________ The Thing (Secret Invasion #104) Very few, and I mean very few figures can compete with Ben Grimm right here for sheer effectiveness, both […]

Best of SOLDIER keyword guest review: Ground troops!
