If I may say so a set of very attractive and elegant figures. Detail is defitely improved compared to their predecessors, most notably mail shirts and the long gowns. Assembly is easy and flash very limited. They take paint very well and the addition of several loose arms provides a few interesting poses not easily achieved with a one-piece casting.
The one serious point of criticism are the spears. While beautifully sculpted, perfectly straight and slender they are quite vulnerable. During assembly and painting, despite being careful, several of them still broke and had to be repaired. When painting these figures for wargaming I would most likely replace them with wire spears.
