      Zitat von cernief im Beitrag #9
      I wonder what our French figure friends have to say about these figures? Any comments?

      Je me demande ce que nos amis français des chiffres pensent de ces chiffres ? Des commentaires ?

      Translation by google translate. :)



      I don't know. Maybe they don't care about French history.
      I love French history anyway. Especially during the Hundred Years War. And while most people choose the side of the English, I choose the side of the French.

      Thank you Claus. I tried to be historically accurate.

      I will present two bases representing 14th century French commanders.
      Figures are from the Emhar set 7210 Crested Knights and they offer enough possibilities for those who like conversions.
      Three of the four flags are handmade.
      The first base represents the King of France, John II the Good, from the Battle of Poitiers (19 September 1356). John II, called John the Good (French: Jean le Bon), was King of France from 1350 until his death in 1364. [[File:M-Win23-Poitiers-4.jpg|none|auto]]
      Next to him on one side is the knight Eustace de Ribemont. He was the French standard-bearer at the battle of Poitiers, where he was killed.[[File:375px-Blason_Seigneurs_de_Ribemont.svg.png|none|auto]][[File:medieval_french_flag_house_of_capet_by_politicalflags_dd08cuq-pre.jpg|none|auto]]
      Next to him on the other side is the knight Geoffroi de Charny, standard bearer of Oriflamme at the Battle of Poitiers.[[File:Blason_famille_fr_Charny.svg.png|none|auto]][[File:61eb52U5bgL._AC_UF894,1000_QL80_.jpg|none|auto]]
      [[File:4c3fa97b280fa04ed9dd488f0a66a639.jpg|none|auto]]

      [[File:20240409_100206~2.jpg|none|fullsize]]

      The second base represents the knight Bertrand du Guesclin and his personal retinue.
      Bertrand du Guesclin (Breton: Beltram Gwesklin; c. 1320 – 13 July 1380), nicknamed "The Eagle of Brittany" or "The Black Dog of Brocéliande", was a Breton knight and an important military commander on the French side during the Hundred Years' War. From 1370 to his death, he was Constable of France for King Charles V. Well known for his Fabian strategy, he took part in seven pitched battles and won the five in which he held command.[[File:Blason_du_Guesclin.svg.png|none|auto]]

      Notes: 1) The Oriflame banner [[File:61eb52U5bgL._AC_UF894,1000_QL80_.jpg|none|auto]]
      The Oriflamme (from Latin aurea flamma, "golden flame"), a pointed, blood-red banner flown from a gilded lance, was the sacred battle standard of the King of France and a symbol of divine intervention on the battlefield from God and Saint Denis in the Middle Ages. The oriflamme originated as the sacred banner of the Abbey of St. Denis, a monastery near Paris. When the oriflamme was raised in battle by the French royalty during the Middle Ages, most notably during the Hundred Years' War, no prisoners were to be taken until it was lowered. Through that tactic, they hoped to strike fear into the hearts of the enemy, especially the nobles, who could usually expect to be taken alive for ransom during such military encounters.
      2) The flag with the white cross on a blue field is the flag of Saint Denis, the patron saint of France during the Middle Ages.

      Neither do I. I've also never read a review like this before for any set.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "linear-A New Set #061 IMPERIAL ROMAN CENTURIONES Command Set 1" geschrieben. 08.04.2024

      [[File:LA061a.jpg|none|fullsize]]
      [[File:LA061b.jpg|none|fullsize]]

      I am quoting the comments from the website plasticsoldierreview.com verbatim:
      "Our reviews usually begin with some background to the subject of the set, but since you are reading this, the chances are that you already know what a Roman centurion is, so we will get straight to the most important point about this set.

      Just occasionally you find a set that has that ‘Wow’ factor, that just looks fantastic as soon as you see it. This is one of those rare sets. The quality of these little figures is just stunning, with a level of detail to take your breath away, and the most natural and realistic poses you could imagine. What is even more amazing is all these figures are supplied as shown – there is no assembly required - yet everything is absolutely perfect, by which we mean the men hold their weapons and shields away from their body, their bodies are turned at all angles without any loss of detail, and really complex, three-dimensional objects like the helmet crests are perfect from all angles. We understand these have been 3D printed, so do not suffer from the usual constraints of a steel two-piece mould, but even 3D printed, we are amazed at the complexity of these figures. We do not review 3D printed figures on this site for the reasons explained on our page 3D Printed Figures and PSR, but this set is marketed in the usual fashion, with a set number of poses that are themselves fixed, and a proper cataloguing system, plus the material used has the feel and properties of a moderately hard plastic. Often 3D printed figures are made in a substance like resin, which means great detail but very brittle and fragile figures, yet those here arrived in the usual poly bag and box, with no extra protection, and all were undamaged. They are not short of thin, vulnerable parts like spears and canes, yet they seem to have no more chance of breakage than a traditional, softer plastic set. Finally, this set sells for the same price as other, traditional plastic sets of 40 figures in 10 poses, making it a far more realistic purchase than the very expensive 3D printed figures of the past.
      We have already gushed about the outstanding sculpting here, which obviously sets a completely new standard in the hobby for mass-produced figures. We assume the figures were designed in a computer, but however it was done, the sculpting is wonderful and worth the purchase price by itself. That the figures were made as they are is just a bonus, and of course there is absolutely no flash, no excess plastic, and definitely no compromises. The tiniest details such as on the greaves and the shields are all amazing, and with no mould to worry about, no detail is missing anywhere. Also of course, there is no sprue, so the figures are ready to go straight out of the box!

      We were blown away by these figures, as you can probably tell. Outstanding in every regard, all we can say is they come with our very highest recommendation!"

      And very good this last photo shoot, next to the trees. Very realistic.
      Well done.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Bruttian Allies (HäT figures)" geschrieben. 01.04.2024

      The conversions are also nice. I liked that last cavalry unit.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Bruttian Allies (HäT figures)" geschrieben. 01.04.2024

      The figures are also nice up close. Nice banner.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Bruttian Allies (HäT figures)" geschrieben. 01.04.2024

      Well Claus, I really like shields. They are historically accurate. I also like the battlefield. I will finally stop looking at your table more than mine. Now the trees look more realistic. How much did the battlefield cost and what are its dimensions?
      In general, everything is beautiful. Nice battle formation and army size. I like the yellow shields better.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Bruttian Allies (HäT figures)" geschrieben. 01.04.2024

      Perfect. I'll take my time looking at them carefully.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "linear-A New Set #088 Bacchanalia in ancient Rome Set 1" geschrieben. 01.04.2024

      I liked the figures. Respect to Linear-A for creating such figures. But they could not be seen in the forum.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "linear-A New Set #088 Bacchanalia in ancient Rome Set 1" geschrieben. 31.03.2024

      I noticed that Brist's figures were censored. Expected because they are pornographic material. Although it's outside my field of interest, I have to say: "Respect to Linear-A team".

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Lucanians 4th - 3rd century B.C." geschrieben. 30.03.2024

      And this is a good figure for Samnite skirmishers.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Lucanians 4th - 3rd century B.C." geschrieben. 30.03.2024

      Misteredd you are correct. I personally have not seen any depiction of an Italian archer. Even if they existed, they did not constitute a separate unit. The Romans used Cretan archers. Slingers I believe there were, I have written it in one of my comments. But the slinger figure on the Samnites Linear-A box is not historically accurate because of the shield and helmet. Slingers had the lightest equipment. The slingshot figures on Rome's early period box are more correct.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Lucanians 4th - 3rd century B.C." geschrieben. 30.03.2024

      Now that I think about it you could use these figures as well as long as you change their heads. Sleeves are not a problem. You can also not put shields (we are talking about skirmishers, slaves or very poor). If you want to put the ones you mentioned, they are good. But the best ones are from the manufacturer: Xyston miniatures 15mm. Very realistic shields with excellent curvature. Only shields without figures are for sale.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Lucanians 4th - 3rd century B.C." geschrieben. 30.03.2024

      240 figures Samnites. A very large army. Some boxes I have bought many times too, like for example "The Army of Pyrrhus of Epirus (Set 1)" and "set 2" but the Samnites I only bought them once.

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Lucanians 4th - 3rd century B.C." geschrieben. 30.03.2024

      Did you buy it 5 times? What will you do with so many Samnites?

    • GeorgeDianelis hat einen neuen Beitrag "Lucanians 4th - 3rd century B.C." geschrieben. 29.03.2024

      Yes, but we are talking about skirmishers, that is, or about slaves or about people of low social classes (4th or 5th class), therefore they could not wear a helmet. What is certain is that no wargame rules system mentions Samnite archers. I will convert these 4 Samnite archers figures into greek archers.
