Today's review regards their British Naval Brigade Boarding Party figures. These differ from other manufacturer's figures in that are heavily armoured - in steel plate carapaces and Ned Kelly style bucket helmets. I think they look awesome!
There are 3 packs in the range, namely:
British Naval Brigade Boarding Party No.1: Four different figures equipped for close combat with pistols and cutlasses
British Naval Brigade Boarding Party No.2: Four different figures equipped for ranged combat with carbines
British Naval Brigade Boarding Party Command: Two stout looking leader types
I purchased a pack of each to give me a 10 man unit. I like that all the poses are different and give good variety to the boarding party. The figures were clean, crisp and easy to paint. The nature of the armour means that there isn't a heap of detail on the figures, but neither is it needed. I was very happy with how mine came out in winter blues styled uniforms, though the Ironclad site has some in tropical whites (pic at the bottom of the post).
