I'm definitely liking the mid-combat poses

Concerning kneeling Askari (#2); in the box art he certainly looks like he's holding a weapon with pistol grip, but the plastic figure is holding his rifle normally. His rifle droop is probably because the modeller glued his left arm too low - angling his arm up a degree or two would fix that. Although, with the length of the rifle, plus bayonette, I would think his left arm should be extended a little to counter the weight, and steady the rifle more when firing.
I've seen 75% given to much poorer quality offerings. That seems to be a little harsh when the only real criticism boils down to a wrong pistol holster.
