I spent last evening prepping and cleaning them, looking forward to getting to the actual painting over the coming week. I tackled the horses first and was surprised at the amount of flash they had, and some of the poor sculpting on them.
First take a look at these horses. I know horses are difficult to sculpt, but these are really quite terrible.
|These look more like mules to me rather than powerful steeds.|
|And look how narrow!|
RidersThe proportions on these figures are way off, the poses are strange, and they are full of flash and miscastings.
|What is this guy doing with his left arm? His hand is cupped near his face... a hand that should be holding a shield.|
|This guy could scratch his ankle without beding over.|
|I'm sure the enormous paddle hand is distracting, but be sure not to miss the amputated right foot. |
I found several figures identically miscast.
One peculiar thing about these figures: the hands holding weapons would need to be drilled out to accept spears. Does anyone know who produced these figures? I'd like to steer clear of the manufacturer in the future.
