A great set and I just love the weapons! But again I think the figures look too slim? The legs of the centre person is very, very thin I think...


Best regards

Thanks. They do look slim in the pics for some reason..and well spotted with the one in the middle. His front foot broke off and dissapeared so I had to replace it with one from another fig...a slightly bigger fig, so the foot makes his leg look thinner again.

Curses!!! (quickly thinks of an excuse for why I spelt the titel wrong).....So..swiis is the medieval pronunciation of the word swiss. It was pronounced with a long "I" in the medieval period due to them having no synthetic materials at the time capable of keeping out the cold..so they shivered a lot..making pronouncing the "I" into a long vowel.
