    These are just about OK, nothing grabs my attention really, the best of the three is the Touareg Warrior, Murat bust is the worst of the three, OK its a good subject, but its so, so deadpan, 1000mile away stare, As for the knight on the horse, I agree the horse is superb, its also absolutely huge compared to the figure,if it was going to be a big horse, would it not have been a large working horse, also if he really was riding that horse and he had the shield in his left hand and holding the reins, plus carrying the pennant in his right, he would have been on his back, on the floor. A little too stylised for me .....

    This is just my opinion, I also could be wrong in some of the things I have said, but its just an impression I have from the limited images we have been shown of the three pieces. My opinion is not deride the quality of the engineering or the overall subject matter, but its just my opinion, being a consumer I am allowed to have an opinion, as its is the consumer that buys these.

    I really like the mounted knight. Lot of action, maybe fansy, but they could handle a horse very well.
    It was there only way for fast transportation so they really know how to manage a horse. The Native Americans could also ride there horses without a saddle and reins.
    And as i stand nearby a horse, they all look very large....as i'm just 1.68m.

    I might tend to agree with Dave on the horse the knight is riding, at least based on this photo. I have to say though, I really like the Touareg Warrior! Interesting subject, and very cool sculpt!

    The Touareg Warrior has a great sense of movement, not over keen on the others though.

    I think I like the Murat. Could be closer to the actual period portrait, certainly needs some re-sculpting of the hair around the forehead and that sharp angle of the right cheek needs to go. The nose & mouth look good. eemmm must think on this.

    Is that a Knight riding the horse or a monkey.............really don't like that face!
    Shame as I am a great fan of Romeo and bought several recent releases from the Napoleonic era.............at least I'll save some money this month.

    The poor horse is fixing to get skewered on a sharp pole :) Then our knight wont have to worry about controling his steed with an arm with a sheild on it :p

    It's a shame about the bust, great subject, and I don't doubt the quality involved at all - but it has no spark. It's lifeless.

    The knight has a dubious face, but I'm sure is great in the flesh.
    Yes, it's very theatrical and to some tastes overdone - but I like it.

    The touareg is excellent though. It has poise, verve and it is in that respect the opposite of the bust...

    While I respect the right of everyone to have an opinion I can't understand the criticism of the mounted knight.
    A knight's warhorse or destrier was believed to be built more like a modern hunter than a draught horse,opinion seems to be divided on their size some sources quoting 16 hands as an average height whereas others quote 24 hands a truly massive animal.
    One thing is for sure they were well trained to bite and kick in battle and to respond to commands by leg pressure rather than reins thus leaving the knight to concentrate on wielding his shield and lance,or in this case a standard, the pose doesn't look lke fantesy to me but as Dave says everone is entitled to their opinion
