Ken of LOD was kind enough to rush me a set of the Amazons. I am truly impressed. The details are really nice and so is the color. It was hard for me to get really detailed pictures. But I did try.

The set includes 8 figures on foot in 4 different poses. There are two mounted figures in 2 different poses. I like the fact that Ken had them insert a piece of plastic between the horses legs to keep them from warping. Plus the weapons were protected in a plastic case. After opening the bag I used some hot water to straight a few that were bent a little. Hot water in a coffee cup placed in microwave for a minute or two. Dip the figure or weapon in for about 10 seconds. Then straighten out the figure or part to the desired place. Finally run with some cold running water or cold water you place with ice. Let the figure or part stand in the cold water for about 10 seconds. This works like a charm.

The first figure is thrusting a spear downward. The spear is separate which makes for a better and easier casting. Plus an easier way to customize with other weapons that a collector might  have or make.

The second pose is of a warrior with an battle axe. I used the hot water method to change the stance of the other warrior a little. You get a aggressive stance and then a defensive stance from the same figure.

Here is the third pose of a wounded Amazon. My least favorite figure of the set.

Here is the fourth pose of an Amazon warrior shooting a bow. This pose is really nice. I bet I could change the stance too with some hot water to get a few different versions from the same pose.

There fifth pose is of a mounted Amazon shooting a bow. Both the figure and horse are really nice.

Here is the last and sixth figure. This one is of a mounted Amazon thrusting a spear downward. These one looks like the leader of the group. She is mounted on a different horse too.

These figures are really nice and the scale fits well with many other brands.
