|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:||The figures were part of an army deal, so I don't know what else is available, although I must say that more variety in the ashigaru would be nice. Having literally two or three poses in each code of the lower classes (who would make the bulk of an army) is very limiting.
The actual figures are nice. A little rough around the edges, and undefined in others, but nice. The impression they give looks right for the period covered, which is approximately the time of the Mongol invasion attempt. All the essential varieties are covered.
|Commentary:||Very rough and grainy, and it sort of suits the feel of Japanese of this period. I just wish there were a little more variety in the poses (although this COULD be due to the packaging- an army deal). I plan to get more to expand the army eventually.|
|Historical Accuracy:||Not bad, maybe a little mixed interms of strict accuracy, but the overall look is OK.|
|Pose Quality:||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:||Average. There is a mix of neat and soft sculpting- almost as if the masters had been exposed to high heat.|
|Casting:||Not bad. The metal is a lot harder than many others I've worked with, so it takes a fair amount of effort to clean the sometimes abundant mould lines and occasional sprues.|
|Sources:||A WAB army from a friend in exchange for a load of other figures.|
