During this years winter challenge I bought the Koryu Buntai for the skirmish game Ronin, not because I intended to start playing the game, but they called out to me... You have all done it something very shiny caught your eye you didn't really need it or have plans for it but it came home with you after separating you from some cash in your wallet. What they were to me was something to play around with and paint up for the sheer pleasure.
Price: This box set costs £22.00 for 9 figures making them £2.45 each so with my scoring method these loose a point for each £2.00 above my baseline in this case (9 x £2.00) so they loose 3 points giving them a 7 out of 10 Ravens for cost.
The Castings: These are exceptional very clean and minimal mould lines. As a set they are very detailed and well crafted and plenty of life and flow in the figures. From this perspective its a 10 out of 10 Ravens.
The Painting : Well I have only completed 4 of the set so far.
That gives this box set an overall score of 9 out of 10 Ravens and I would say if you fancied painting up something that is just a little different from the normal these make a great purchase.
