The other day I saw a blog article on Stad’s Stuff, Prikaz Medieval Sets Russian Prince Court Viking Life. It was preview of some Danish Vikings and Rus Slavic figures from a Russian company called Prikaz. The preview showed two different sets in 1/32 scale. The Viking figures depicted everyday life events. Either raiding, fighting or just waiting for a drink. The other set was of a Russian Prince’s Court. There is a Warlord, some merchants and a Sentry. Both of these sets caught my eye and I decided to purchase them.
I liked the fact that the figures showed everyday life poses from that era. Here are some pictures below of the Vikings sets.
Here are the first two figures. The Viking sitting down is Ragnar Lodbrok aka “Ragnar shaggy breeches”. Then there is a Danish Woman serving a horn of Mead.
The next two figures shows a Saxon woman being carried away by a Viking Raider.
The last figure shows a Viking Earl in a fighting pose. He can be added to a Shieldwall.
Now back to the Russian Medieval Court. Most of these figures depict everyday life too. There are three merchant type figures. It looks like some are haggling about the price of something.
The first figure is a Fur Merchant. The Second one is a called the “Money Changer.” The third figure is a old woman called the Klyuchnica (Old Slavic, literally “woman-intendant.”)
The next figure is the Rus Slavic Warlord. He is standing strong with his sword stabbing the ground. I think he is trying to make a point.
Here is the last figure. It is a Sentry leaning on an Axe. He looks like he is keeping an eye on everyone.
I have to say that these figures are not for everyone. Mainly because of the cost. Each set was about $55.00. I think only the die hard medieval fans like me are going to purchase a set like this. It fills a void for my collection. It brings a bunch of characters that I can use in a village setting.
Here are some of the Safari figures that I got the other day at Hobby Lobby. They look really good with these new Prikaz figures.
The sculpting is very good, a little crude at times. When I add a few of these figures to a diorama they add so much to the story being told.
The Prikaz figures are 1/32 in scale about the same size as Conte Medieval figures. Also like Conte that are casted in a hard rubber type plastic. These figures blend in very well with other companies like Conte Medieval figures, Barzso Medieval figures, Engineer Basevich and any figures that are around 56mm to 60mm.
I purchased these figures on eBay at Toy Soldiers for all Ages. I received the figures about 10 days after I purchased them.
I have a some more pictures below that show a few different angles and close ups. Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed the review.
