FireForge - 28mm Templar Knights

Close on the heels of their previous release, comes FireForge's offering of Templar Knights, these should be viewed in context of the Teutonic Knights boxed set, as they share many of the same parts and same approach to quality, animated sculpting and ease of assembly.

That said the only exception to the note about same parts is that we get a new selection of heads to work with, to reflect the fact that these are not Teutonic knights! Additionally we get three kite shields in the mix, again using the pre-moulded arm technique that makes assembly simple and robust. See the knights' frame below right.

Each box contains 12 figures, with 3 frames of knights plus a mix of barded and unbarded horses for the knights to ride. The unbarded horse is moulded in two halves, making a possible nine variants when building. THe barded horse is again in two halves giving four variants and is the same frame as issued in the Tuetonic Knights set.

See Frames below left and right....
