Curtey's Miniatures

United Kingdom

Mongol foot
As Delivered

Barrett Scale: 23½M
Mixes best with: Hard to say as I don't have too many other Asian figures of this period to compare to as yet.
Long Review: Wow! The sheer variety is incredible, as is the standard of the sculpting. In the first fifty-odd packs they had 272 different figures! Marvellous.
I will commend these figures, though. They cover both the main protagonists of the Mongol invasion of China, as well as some earlier periods of Chinese history.
My only gripe would be that the figures are a little too chunky for my taste- the overall style reminds me very much of Dixon figures, with the heads being a tad over-sized on some.
Commentary: Very nice, neat figures, although a little chunky for my taste.
Historical Accuracy: Four Not bad, maybe a little mixed interms of strict accuracy, but the overall look is OK.
Pose Quality: Four A fairly mixed batch of similar poses in a specific pack, all basically the same, with minor variations in head gear or slight variations in arm positions.
Sculpting: Four Average.
Casting: Four Average.
Sources: Samples sent by the Curteys a while back.
Sculptors: Figures by Martin Baker, bare horses/camels etc by Rod Tyson.
