Review Perrys Foot Knights
Foot Knights 1450-1500 Set
The Perry twins hardly need an introduction from me. Since they left GW they have built up a successful historical model range including many plastic sets.
Their set of 38 late medieval plate-armoured dismounted knights retails at £20, making them superb value for money. These are multipose figures that can be a little tricky to put together but on the other hand there is so much variation on offer that no two need be the same.
The models are a true 28mm and with a slim rather than heroic build and are nicely detailed - detail that is easily brought out with a simple black wash.
Bulked together the models look great, even with a very simple two-colour ad a wash paint job.
As well as six identical sprues, each with six figures, you get a leader sprue consisting of a King/Baron (change head as required) and Standard Bearer. Incidentally, the box includes a number of coloured flags to cut out - mainly English and French.
All I have added are some bases.
A great box of figures and superb value for money at £20.
