    Oh one tiny point when I did this figure I found it easier to mount the arm to the shield then to the body,it's personal preference but that's what worked for me

    Thanks for suggesting this idea , I can see where you are coming from on this ..and of course put the handle throuh the hand before the arm is put to the shield

Pete very kindly supplied some painting guidelines which were not included in the original kits but are now ( apologies Steve). I have included these below for others who bought the figure and have not started it yet. The spear shaft is made from carbon fibre.

    Great review Kev on what is my favourite period. Only wish this was a 54mm or a 75mm as for me 120's take up too much room. The bit about the Coppergate helmet was a nice touch. Dragged around Waitrose is hell eh? You should try Aldi, its worse.

    Jazz it's well worth breaking a size rule for IMO
