    Those chains look a bit odd, but maybe there is a historical reference, and don’t think they need be used

    I believe chains were used with the heavy weapons like swords and stuff to act as we would use a lanyard for a firearm in the modern era....

    Makes sense, but the ones on this model look darned unwieldy...esp for foot...this guy has more men at arms look than Knight.

    There dividing line between rich man at arms and poor knight is indistinguishable. The chains were a short lived fad especially common in Germany. Those chains while possibly large are not imbossiblyso.

    This is a perfect example of when the sculptor makes an anatomicaly correct base figure to build on and then loads it up all kinds of clothing, chainmail and armor and then it ends up looking short and squatty. The sculpting is great, but the sculptor needs to look ahead for what's going to be added. I wonder how many figures started out as 75mm figures ended up 90mm when that fact was realized. Live and learn...nice paintwork.

    Which is exactly what it should look like, put anybody in all those layers and it looks like that

    Thanks guys..to me it’s a cool piece..so don’t want to seem silly bugger, but just seems the chains suited modern heavy equipment ...and somehow would unbalance use of the weapons..try swinging an axe with a rope hanging off the handle end..it’s slow and ponderous....in battle I would want something light and manageable with perhaps a lanyard if I were mounted..I have a feeling that on foot a dropped weapon would end badly chain or not..

    Yes, Steve, you are exactly right......But what is more pleasing to the eye when it comes to sculpture? A short squaty guy loaded with armor or a well balanced figure. Probably the average man back then was probably 5'6 maybe 5'7. But the bottom line is what's more pleasing to the viewers eye and when I look at a sculpt to paint, that viewer is me...For me it's all about balance.

    Sent a note to Jason Kingsley simply out of interest, asking if he had tested chain lanyards...his stuff verges on experimental archaeology ..and is fun

    There´s 90 mm knight in exactly the same pose from Stefano Borin´s White Models Company.

    Maybe they simply found chains more durable. They might not have had cables in those days as we know them today...
    Interesting that it was short lived though, it was probably not worth the weight and being so cumbersome.

    Steve (Helm) is correct and backs his point up well with some illustrations, and Wayne is also correct about "balance".

    I'm on the fence with this one. While it appears to be well researched & "historically accurate" and is a good sculpt (it's Oleg P. after all), I can see exactly where Wayne is coming from. I think it might work better with thinner chains. Or no chains at all.

    Would I buy it? Maybe! But it's not top of my list.
