here’s something I do like to see, that is of use not only in the
wargaming scene but also in R.P.G’s and these fit the bill nicely,
for Wargamers they will make a nice little diorama and add life to
the battlefield, you know the sort of thing, empty space that looks bare
with not a lot going on, put a few minis in a scene and hey presto nice
window dressing type, and for R.P.G’ers a few NPC’s to liven up a
village encounter and help set the scene, yep some handy minis.
are they like, well, they are certainly full of character, each can be used
as a single item or as with the pointing chap as a pair or group.
mini’s stand at 25mm from base of the foot to the eye, pretty decently
detail, the guy taking a leak is actually sculpted whistling whilst he
relieves himself, a nice touch I thought.
clothing has a decent hang and with folds fairly well suggested, hair is
well cut and defined and overall detail is pretty crisp, even down to the
lacing on the shoes.
look to be a type of mini that should accept full blown painting and picking
out, as well as using dry brushing techniques, so the choice is there for
the painter to choose.
there was some, and mould lines too in varying degrees from a little to an
intermediate of acceptability, but as no real work was needed to clean them
up, I did considered this to be no chore, so I reckon they are quite ok on
the undercoat on it was time to let the brushes and paint loose,
I did use the two methods on different minis to see if my initial
thoughts were correct and I’m pleased to say yes they were, Both styles
gave a pleasing result and once completed really brought out the characters
that the minis had to offer.
nice set of minis that are very much worth a look, as I mentioned in my
first thoughts they can be used in a number of rolls so are quite cost
effective and will brighten up a village or a battlefield rather nicely.
