Seven knights and horses with multiple build options
Precision fit of interchangeable parts
Model kit is easy to assemble and paint
The focus of this set is the 12th Century Medieval Joust Tournament, although the figures in this set are equally suitable for war.
Essentially you get seven bodies with legs, and you add arms, heads etc. to create your knights. The rigid plastic is perfect for this sort of fine engineering assembly. Everything has to be glued, but the plastic takes ordinary cement extremely well. Various types of helmet, surcoat and armour are options in this kit and can be arranged to represent famous historical knights. Crests appear on many of the helmets are all really nicely done and authentic. The poses are all excellent, and the men fit the animals very well.
Also included are two grandstands, each coming as one piece with a number of figures engraved as spectators. The coats of arms displayed on the front of the stand identifies the judges themselves. The second is simply a stand with a number of ladies watching the action, all wearing the very tall headdresses fashionable at Court in the late medieval period. Between them is a man who is holding aloft a crested helmet, which apparently belongs to the nominated knight of honour at the tournament, who will not be engaging in combat.
The sole foot figure is a fashionably-dressed man who seems to be holding a stick on which he might place his master’s helmet for display prior to the action getting started.
Finally we have a tent, which looks perfectly appropriate for the medieval period and comes in two halves.
Easy construction suitable to beginner modelers.
