1st Corps

United Kingdom

Republican Roman, as delivered
As Delivered

Barrett Scale: 25½M
Mixes best with: Still working on that, although from recollection Foundry is pretty close, as are some of the Old Glory Ranges.
Long Review: The sole 1st Corps Ancient figure I have is a "leftover" in my spares-box. These figures are cheap and cheerful, decently animated and full of variety. They are pretty varied, and a decent number of variations within each pack mean that the units don't get boring.
The units of Romans I painted were pretty decent figures, and, although the metal was a lot harder than many of the other suppliers' I've worked with, the end result matches up well with all the rest.
Commentary: At an average of £0.85 each, they are below market average in cost, but about market average in terms of usefulness.
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. There is a mix of neat and soft sculpting- almost as if the masters had been exposed to high heat.
Casting: Four 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: Single figure left over from previous project.
Sculptors: Unknown.
