Outpost Wargame Services

|Long Review:||A nice range of figures specifically for the post-Roman "Arthurian" period. They will be useful for any of the post-Roman armies and warlords' armies, with a definite flavour of the British Isles to some of them.
RB1 are more civilised than the GT figures, and armoured troops to boot (Armoured Warband). RB2 and RB3 are the civilised counterparts of GT1 and GT2- more unarmoured warband and archers. They have a much more civilised, regular look to them. They also have seperate weapons and shields, and RB1 and RB2 have typically post-Roman helmets. Some of the archers feature caps, and many of them have seperate quivers. RB1 and RB2 have seperate shields, spears and swords.
|Commentary:||Not a bad range at all. The sculpting style is very neat and clean, and the sculptor shows a lot of promise for 28mm (he is apparently more a 15mm man).|
|Historical Accuracy:||Average. Almost all the standard types are represented.|
|Pose Quality:||Average. The poses are fairly standard, with each figure having a few minor variants (head swaps, mainly).|
|Sculpting:||Average. A little rough in spots, but still within reasonable limits.|
|Casting:||Good. There is minimal mould slippage or excess metal.|
|Sources:||Purchased at minimal cost as review samples.|
