It has been about a month since my last post. I have been busy with work and was away on vacation. While I was away I did find a few things. I will talk about that in a future post. Today I just wanted to do a quick review of 2 sets that I purchased from the company called Biplant. The sets are of Gauls and Rus Warriors. I did a preview of these sets in a past post, Latest News!! 09-13-2019 ~ Previews of some new releases from Engineer Basevich & Biplant. I purchased these on ebay for $6.50 a set. The first set I will review is of the Gauls.
Here is the set of Gauls. I am very pleased with these set. The poses are nice and so is the sculpting. When I first read about these figures I thought that they would be about 65mm. They are closer to 54mm. They are a little smaller than the Conte Medieval figures. The material that is used is like the Conte figures too, but a little softer. I am planning to use some of these figures as Saxons or Vikings.
These figures blend very well with the Conte Medieval figures. I am planning on trimming some of the weapons and helmets.
The next set is of Rus Warriors. Again I am very happy with these figures too. Yesterday I watched the trailer to the “Vikings” tv show. The Rus finally arrive. Perfect timing to start a Rus collection of figures. Some of the these figures can be used as Vikings & Saxons or even a Norman.
The figures are a welcome addition to my collection. Some of the poses will stand out in a display. I am planning on purchasing a few more sets of these soon.
That is it for now. My next post will be about some of the things I found on my trip. Thank you for reading.
