Nice review.
I've alluded too my team's use of it in the past, but here's the whole story:
My ODA set up an OP on a small hilltop overlooking the Syrian border. One of our tasks was interdicting foreign fighters coming across the border.
often we would observe tracers being fired across the border from both sides - an obvious signal of some sort. So the other Bravo and I walked out from our OP into the desert floor and fired an illum round above the border. What we managed to do was perfectly silhouette ourselves out there for all to see. It did stop the shenanigans for the rest of the night though.
Backblast wasn't a problem - I think we reasoned that the illum would be a lower pressure charge as all it has to do was loft the round upward.
Long story short, I'll combine it with the Legend Sergeant Rob figure to get a somewhat accurate representation of that night.

Since both kits have already been reviewed on Armorama a while back, I decided to take a different approach and wrote an article on how and where one can use the Legend kits in a modern 1/35 military setting.

Now we have the 1/35 GROM Polish figure that might/ could be adapted to fire these 1/35 Legend weapons M4 and AT-4 weapons and combined with Live-Resin accessories, the GROM figure could represent any NATO soldier.
