4.0 out of 5 stars
Adaptable models for Dark Age Wargamers!, 1 Nov 2013
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars
This box has 40 models (they are not Toys!) in 8 sprues of 5 models, enough to make a large unit of human warriors for a game like Warhammer Fantasy Battle or for an entire "Saga" faction. Made by Renedra for Gripping Beast this is a quality hard plastic product in 28mm scale. Parts can be clipped or cut with a craft knife as the bodies, heads, weapons and shields all need to be assembled. You will need plastic glue or superglue. Comes with a set of square bases in a variety of 20mm multiple sizings. Each sprue has 5 bodies with two legs and a left arm in a shield bearing pose if you need to attach one of those! On each sprue there are 7 right arms with spears in various poses, 5 shields, 7 heads (1 covered), 3 slings, 1 horn, 1 sword, 1 hand axe.
The models all come with covered legs, so if you want bare feet and bare legs you need to look elsewhere (good luck!) They seem suitable for a range of forces; Saxons, Danes, Vikings possibly Scots and Welsh. No bare chests though and no cloaks and of course - no armour! The addition of some bows would have given this another star!
The bases come as 16 of 20mm x 20mm, 2 of 100mm x 20mm, 2 of 60mm x 20mm, 2 of 40mm x 20mm, 2 of 40mm x 40mm. (44 figures can be accomodated on all these but you only get 40).
A flexible product that could be converted for a variety of wargame uses.
