Parkfield Miniatures

United Kingdom

12th-13th Century Samurai foot
As Delivered

Barrett Scale: 24½L/M
Mixes best with: Probably most of the older ranges that cover this period.
Long Review: Yet another period that my info is very shaky on. I will judge these figures purely on their sculpting and what I have been able to glean on the period in a (very) short browse on the web and a few dimly-recalled memories in assorted wargames magazines.
These figures are done in a neat, clean style with average detail and anatomy. The legs appear somewhat spindly and the heads look a trifle large. The poses are pretty generic, but I suspect that they'll paint up a lot better than they look in bare metal. The general appearance looks like what I'd expect to see of figures of this period (based on the old WRG books and a quick browse of the web).
Commentary: Good figures which should paint up very easily.
Historical Accuracy: Four These figures donated by Simon Lee.
Pose Quality: Four Average.
Sculpting: Four Average. This set is showing their age in terms of the sculpting style.
Casting: Four Average. Ther is a little mould slippage and some cleaning, but not excessively so.
Sources: These figures donated by Simon Lee.
Sculptors: Simon Lee.
