Barrett Scale: 28½L.
Mixes best with: Still working on this period.
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.
RB4 is a set of light cavalry, unarmoured warriors with javelins or spears. They come standard on a charging horse. RB5 is a set of armoured cavalry, wearing chainmail. They come standard with cantering horses.The saddle and blanket are part of the rider.

The cavalry and mounted command can (on request) be supplied on walking, cantering or galloping horses. In unit packs, a mix is standard (unless you request others).
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: 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: Five Good. There is minimal mould slippage or excess metal.
Sources: Purchased at minimal cost as review samples.
Sculptor: Unknown
