Atten-Shun Review

New Range in 20mm

John Niblett, has just brought an interesting range of 20mm scale, cast metal 11th, 12th and 14th century knights and some 17th century infantry on to the market. John tells us that the range is not new and the figures were available (but only in painted form) some years ago - long before the days of Military Modelling magazine. Actually, examples of John's work probably will be in the collections of most wargamers already since he was responsible for the sculpture of most of the Airfix HO/OO range of polythene figures. In the early Renaissance range there are roundheads, musketeers, pikemen and cavaliers, while the mounted knights are all accompanied by men-at-arms, and the caparisons of the knights' chargers are cast without creases and folds in the material to enable the painting of coats of arms and other heraldic devices to be undertaken. Smaller than 25mm figures and a bit bigger than 15mm, they retail at three mounted for £1.60 (plus postage and packing) and six foot for 72p for the same postage.

  Niblett's 14th Century knights and men-at-arms.
