|Mixes best with:||That's a hard one. As each figure is an individual, and a character to boot, it is difficult to find a range they won't fit in with.|
|Long Review:||The figure comes with a round slotted plastic base. The amount of flash and mould lines is well within acceptable limits (almost no flash or lines, just a few little vents to allow the casting of really fine details like pointing fingers) which are easily removed.
Hanako, the martial artist, is a single piece casting. She captures the image of a Samurai lady perfectly, being dressed in a kimono and all the traditional fittings, with a properly demure attitude and bowed head. She's caught in the action of drawing (or maybe sheathing?) her sword.
|Commentary:||Kev's sculpting style is very neat and clean, and allows the painter the maximum flexibility. There is no over-done detail, and the figures are full of character and have excellent body-language.|
|Historical Accuracy:||Good (OK, so how historical can a fantasy figure really be?).|
|Sculpting:||Clean, useful sculpts. The female figures are definitely much more natural than the stereotyped ones we always see.|
|Casting:||Very good. There are very few bits of metal to be cleaned off, and the mould lines are quite understated.|
