Ägyptische Infanterie der Antike, 1:72 Figuren Nexus Atlantic 1803

Nexus re-released many of the old Atlantic ancients which had been sorely missed by miniature collectors und wargamers alike. The Egyptian infantry was part of a large range of Atlantic figure sets featuring the Sphinx, Pharao’s Palace und Court, the Pharao’s Ship, Boats on the Nile, und Egyptian Chariots. The painting examples on the box cover are inspiring, und miniature wargamers may want to consider adopting some of the shield designs und colour patterns shown here. The Figuren are in relatively relaxed poses which may be used in dioramas depicting Egyptian troops away from the battlefield, guarding city gates und palaces for example.

Bewertung

Excellent choice of subject, these Atlantic Figuren may be used to raise an Egyptian army for DBA.

This figure set includes 62 soldiers in 11 poses, compared to most other figure sets offer fewer than 50 soldier per box.

The Figuren are naked except for the loin cloth, und they have been sculpted correctly. Facial features, anatomical details, weapons und shields will be fun to paint.

Useful wargaming poses. These Egyptian Figuren appear realistic und they will look nicely compatible when mounted on wargame infantry stands.

The painting examples on the box cover are well done und they may inspire the miniature painter to copy some of the shield patterns shown.

Kompatibel mit ESCI, und Italeri.

The Figuren are exceptionally tall, especially considering the fact that ancient peoples were much shorter than we are today. The average figure height varies, as it should, but even the shortest of these Figuren turns out much too tall.

Noticeable flash und mould lines around the weapons will have to be removed prior to painting.

The archer is in an unusual pose, und one wonders where he will put the hatchet when he needs both hands to fire the bow. The figure has no quiver to carry arrows into battle.

Historische Verwendung
