    I wanted to review this cool little kit I received about a month ago from Vitaly at Alliance Miniatures

    The kit arrived nicely packed in a ziplock wrapped in bubble wrap in the box.
    Here are the pieces:

    The pour spouts are located in spots that will be hidden from the look of it.

    The joint lines between pieces should be easy to camouflage. The head to neck joint is covered by the hair/beard.
    The left arm joins at an armband

    The right arm join lands underneath the fur “cloak”

    The cape join will mostly be hidden by the antelope from the looks of it.

    The antelope neck seam will need filler. My copy had one of the little antlers broken off. No big deal as the piece was in the bag.

    The spear is warped but nothing a little hot water won’t fix. The base is a nice little rocky circle.

    The casting seam lines are very slight. There is some tissue paper thin flash between the legs as can be seen in the photo.

    Overall, it’s a nice little kit. I’m looking forward to starting on it.

    That’s it for my first attempt at a review.

    Thank you for the review.
    Another one high-quality Russian kit.
    Unusual and prototype subject, i can remember only some beautiful old 1/35 Nemrod figures with prehistoric subject.
