More Amazons –Linear –A 021 set
As some of you might know I have painted up some Dark Alliance Amazons as seen on my last diorama, so I was pretty excited to find this set from Linear-A. After checking out the box and description, I thought I would take a chance and see what they were like. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at their quality and size and they fit really well with the Dark Alliance figures, so I would recommend them if one needs to bulk out this set.
Normally I wouldn’t do this but with things as they are becoming in these politically correct times, I will put a warning up that these little figures are mostly portrayed in a naked form.
I have taken a few shots of eleven of the twelve poses, the one omitted is sitting down and I did not feel I needed that pose just yet. There are 48 figures in the box and I have to say the sculpturing is very good and if the PSR were to review this set they would say there is no flash, but me being me I still ran the blade over a few seams, but I’m am a bit fussy.
There are a few shots (taken in the shed on a nice warm day) on their own and then a few with some Dark Alliance figures mixed in to show some comparison.
As some of you may know we lost a great sculptor of figures this year (a big thanks to Paul Bodd for letting us know) in Leonardo Torrincini, he was a great help to me when I was doing my Roman diorama. I’m proud to say that his fine figures of the Celts Gaul casualties made it that much more real to me, and I have also used some of his crows on the Moscow retreat if one looks closely. He was a true gentleman and a great contributor to our craft and one who shall be sorely missed.
Well this will be my last post for 2019 so I will wish you all who are Christmas folk a great one and to all you others just have lots of fun! Cheers Pat.
