Chiltern Miniatures

United Kingdom

Late Imperial Roman infantryman, as delivered
As Delivered

Barrett Scale: 27M.
Mixes best with: In terms of style and quality, the best matches would probably be Irregular and Old Glory.
Long Review: I got a number of these figures as samples when they were still owned by Whitecross figures. The samples are a pretty representative sampling of the Goth and Late Roman ranges (these were the first two series made). I found them easy to work with, and easy to paint. The detail is well represented, yet not overdone.
Commentary: Not a bad range at all. There are one or two slightly more squat individuals in there, but they make a good starter army at a reasonable price.
Historical Accuracy: Four Average. Almost all the standard types are represented.
Pose Quality: Four Average. The poses are fairly standard, with each figure having a few minor variants (head swaps, mainly).
Sculpting: Four Average. A little rough in spots, but still within reasonable limits.
Casting: Four Average. There are a few cases of mis-aligned moulds, but due to the metal used they are pretty easy to fix up.
Sources: Samples bought for own collection when the range was still owned by Whitecross Miniatures.
Sculptors: Unknown
