Latest batch of three done.
Now I think these illustrate pretty well some little niggles and annoyances I have with Gripping Beast. For the most part the models are okay, but the poses are sometimes very wooden and the extremities look clumsy (see the guy with the red tunic). Also, the rendering of cloth looks crude sometimes and lacking realistic folds and movement. You might also notice the right eye of the guy with the yellow tunic looks a bit squiffy. This is because the model has quite a deep pit right where the eyeball goes, which was hard to paint out.
All in all, I'd say GB are decent enough for rank fillers and a good price, but I think I'll be using Crusader for Dark Age stuff from now on, even though their range is a little more limited. The poses may lack dynamism, but I much prefer their proportions, quality of finishing and the general look of the figures.
