Fireforge already produce an impressive array of plastic box sets in their ‘Western Armies’ range. This latest set adds to the Foot Knights, Foot Sergeants, Mounted Sergeants, Sergeants at Arms and Archers that are already available.
The Western Knights are all mounted, with the box set containing three brand new rider frames – enough to make twelve knights. Six horse frames, which have been seen before in other Fireforge sets, are enough to make twelve horses. For those twelve complete figures there are 18 sets of arms and 30 ‘on frame’ heads to choose from. As if there wasn’t enough head choice, there are an additional twelve resin heads in the set.
It’s probably worth noting that the main ‘rider’ frame is mainly a duplicate of the frame from the Mounted Sergeants box set; same arms, weapons, bodies and cloaks, but different heads and shields.
As with the other figures in the Fireforge range the Western Knights are well sculpted in a dynamic/heroic style. Fireforge continue their love affair with cloak wearing models captured in a charging motion.
The figures go together well, with little fuss, but care and consideration is required, as highlighted in the photos below.
