    This will be a great diorama.A fair price too considering it's 15 figures plus accessories and it looks like a base is included.(y)

    Hi Mark,
    Thank you, yes the base is included, if you take off the base and accessories then each figure works out at £12.
    cheers

    This is a fantastic piece and great vale for money for a 15 piece set. They should fly off the shelfs while stocks last

    In the hands of a good painter this will be nothing short of magnificent when completed and is effectively a museum piece in a box. If this was my area of interest (Romans and ancients) I would have had one in a heartbeat. As others have said, an absolute bargain for what it is !

    Hi Tommi, Gary, Steve, Daniel, Nap & Steve,
    Thank you all for your encouragement I know it was originally released by Gordon, but this is far too good a set to shelved.

    I have actually re-engineered most of the figures, one I did not do as I ran out of rubber. The purpose of doing this and making new moulds was to try and eliminate any potential mould lines. So they are cast in an unconventional way to the norm, but it really works.

    I will in time add more defenders to this scene as well as the Zulu's.

    I have the last six Zulu heads from Rob so I am one finishing the last 6 Zulu's, once these are done I will start making the moulds.
    cheers

    Hey Richie... Zulus, huh? Lots of 'em.... black as hell, thick as grass. Guess I did't plan very well with the dome, did I? Really looking forward to seeing them.

    Shockingly gorgeous and probably the most fair/competitive pricing I have seen in a lot of time.If only I did not have about a thousand projects already waiting I would give it a go.
