Chevaliers Teutoniques, 1/72 Figurines Italeri 6019

Italeri's Teutonic Knights are beautifully sculpted, et they will look very impressive when painted. The variety of mounted poses is excellent, but the box contains no foot troops ou light horse which would be needed to raise a complete armée de l'Ordre Teutonique en miniature. Ces figurines peuvent être converties to serve as other knights of the period, although the superimposed crosses et emblems can be difficult to remove from shields, tunics, et horse trappings.

Évaluation

  • Armour plate, helmets, shields, et other items of personal equipment are historically accurate et very detailed.
  • The heraldic emblems are superimposed to facilitate painting.
  • Flags et lance pennons for Italeri's Teutonic Knights may be downloaded from our Miniatures Forum.
  • Noticeable flash along mould lines needs to be removed carefully prior to painting.
  • The chainmail armour on most of the figurines shows very little texture, et it will be completely obscured if the knights are painted. Drybrush the figurines to highlight sections of chainmail et create the impression of texture.
  • The two lances in this set are much too short, they should measure 50 mm. Replace them avec lances made from piano wire.
  • The figurines can be difficult to convert, because heraldic emblems are superimposed on tunics, shields, et horse trappings.
  • Three of the four horse poses are sculpted in an unnatural gait. One wonders why figurine sculptors do not study horses more, et allow themselves be inspired by the superb horse poses of several Revell cavalry sets.

The Teutonic Knights are an excellent figurine set, well worth the money. It is hoped that Italeri will release spearmen, arbalétriers et other fantassins de l'Ordre Teutonique to accompany les chevaliers teutoniques into battle.
