Skeleton, as delivered
As Delivered

Barrett Scale: 28½M.
Mixes best with: Pretty much any undead range, as a skeleton is a skeleton, and the original donors come in many sizes...
Long Review: The figures are very nicely sculpted, and show very little flash.
I picked three skeletons as samples, mainly because they will be used in Pulp games, so need to be fairly neutral. The ERM skeletons are definitely middle-of-the-road. They should fit in with just about any range of "live" or zombie figures, but most particularly all the older ranges of skeletons (such as GW's older skeletons, or the original Citadel metal ones). The three skeletons would be suitable for any archaeological expedition's livelier finds... The sword-armed and axe-armed ones are generic enough that they'll pass muster in most dark ages armies where chainmail was worn, and the third (armed with a halberd of some sort) will be right at home in a medieval army.
Commentary: At an average of £0.85 each, they are competitively priced.
Historical Accuracy: Five The overall look is pretty good, the size will mean that they will fit in with most 28mm figures, as opposed to being "over-sized" as is the trend these days.
Pose Quality: Four Good.
Sculpting: Four Clean, useful sculpts. The bases are also pretty small, so don't dominate the figures.
Casting: Four Based on the samples I have, the casting is pretty decent. There are very few bits of metal to be cleaned off, and the mould lines are quite understated.
Sources: Items purchased for own collection.
Sculptors: Jim Bowen?
