At Fall In this past weekend, I ran across this new product. At least it was new to me. This company, Eccentric Miniatures, it making plastic figures on square sprues. They make bowmen, men at arms, etc. The price of these figures is reasonable. This pack of eight bowmen cost $12.
These are the contents of the box of longbowmen. It is difficult to tell from these pictures, but the detail is good, and the anatomy seems right. The faces are as good as most plastic figures I’ve seen — meaning not quite as good as lead, but still good enough for my painting ability.
What caught my eye, however, was a rack of sprues of swords, axes, maces, bows, pouches and other accessories that were available for $2 a sprue. These would be quite handy for adding some variety to other figures.
