    Hello Planeteers, yesterday Hugo give me the very first copy of GENERAL SUN TZU , 75 mm fugure.
    Just want to share with you the first impressions. In my point of view just love that horse and all the dinamic of the figure.
    This is not a review, I´ll let that task for someone with a more "neutral" opinion than me.

    I've no idea if it's "accurate" or not, but either way it's a cracking sculpt and a fantastic piece of art.

    Looking forward to seeing some painted examples.

    As Steve said this is a piece of ART!!!!No doubt about that.It is simply fantastic.I am no sinologist so I cannot comment on the accuracy of the arms and armour.I have a slight reservation regarding wether stirrups were available at Sun Zu's time but that does not deminish the excellent work that has been done by the sculptor and caster on this beauty.Well done RP models.

    No such thing as a neutral review Paolo.....but one can always rely on RP to come up with a superb product thanks to the imagination and dedication of Hugo and his team.......this one is no exception.

    Thanks Nap!

    I just pm'd Hugo but figure I should maybe ask you as well. I assume the Sun Tsu is sold out and not available? How do I ensure that I can buy the cataphract and avoid similar disappointment?

    Thanks

    Hello, where can you buy?

    Hi there

    Message him also through the FB page as well to sort something out .

    RP policy is to sell direct to his traders so that is what Hugo means when it's "sold out" ......in UK it's SK Miniatures and El Greco , off the top of my head can't think of a US one ...( it's late!!)


    See above

    Hello, in the name of RP MODELS, thak you for the complements !!

    About accuracy what I can say, for me, theres´s a "RATIO" beetwen Historical, acuracy, mith/legend and a small bit for the "Artistic" part, on a figure, by this order, I believe thats the only way to have fun in hour hobby.

    Saillings, please send a PM message to Hugo Pereira (Nº 1 in RP Models) or by Facebook.
    Yes the Figure is sold out but there´s resailers that have them like SK MINIATURES (UK) and www.greenmodels.net (Portugal)

    For the katafratary, YES he will come in a very next future, but don´t rush, let our team made a good job with planty of nice details for you. Again for buy send a PM to Hugo please.

    Looks fantastic - I love how it conveys movement and the bird of prey is the icing on the cake.

    Cheers

    Although this is not my "era of expertise" at all, I am tempted to buy the bust as it is the only (?) model of the legendary chinese general that I am aware of.
    It is true that RP has raised the bar significantly and has set new higher standards for the quality of figures and busts.I was fortunate to buy the bust of Lord Lovat and I am still astonished by the level of detail and texture....I am pretty sure that this one will be at least at the same level if not better.....
