Now there's an excellent purpose for a "pointing" Kommandant figure!
Looks like a very nice offering from the good 'ol folks at MiniArt!

Wow! Now for injection molded plastic, those figures actually look very good. Very natural poses and the folds on the uniforms look super accurate.

Figures are very old, coming from an artillery kit set. Hope Miniart cleaned up the molds.

I felt the poses seemed familiar. Was it the one with the box art that made the officer seem a bit of a dandy? The figure isn't as bad, but the art actually kept me from buying the set because I felt like I would have to register the set with the National Sex Offender Registry and inform my neighbors it was in my stash. The guy with no cap on is looking at him like, "WTF is this dude? Did he marry the colonel's niece?"

And here I was just thinking "Wow! And it comes with useful figures too"...now I'm going to have to reconsider my enthusiasm. Though since they're from MiniArt they're probably useful.

Honestly, the set first came out in 2015, so not really that old. The four guys toting crates are useful for a busy dio scene, but the art for the officer really is not accurate. Do an image search for Miniart 35192 and look at some painted examples.

While the details seem good, the poses strike me as a bit odd. Only one guy seems to be struggling with the weight of the crate, the others are kind just standing there. In fact, in the build pics, the dude with the cap at the back actually looks like he's leaning on the edge.

Wonder if it is because the original set were carrying artillery round cases and no changes were made to reflect different weight/bulk??
