Wow, just as I was finishing my Black Scorpion miniature for the contest, my Maelstrom miniatures Cynuise of Old, Barrow Knight Banner Bearer arrived at my mail box. Gosh, this year is gonna be a year for many other make and brands of miniatures coming to my collection and painting.
With the GW embargo, just as I wanted to get a Vampire Count Wright Standard Bearer, I turned to the option of others. The closest I could find was Maelstrom new line of miniatures Banelegions. I ordered the Cynuise of Old, Barrow Knight Banner Bearer to be field as my Vampire Count Standard Bearer.
Meantime, here’s my first impression. On Maelstrom store, the picture for the Cynuise of Old, Barrow Knight Banner Bearer does not reveal much details for the skeleton warrior. When I decided to order it, I wasn’t really expecting much of the details thought, but I was more interested in the banner, where I could freehand my Vampire icons…
Out of the package, I was surprised that the Barrow Knight Banner Bearer comes in resin. All the while I was having the impression that the Banelegions miniatures are in the usual metal ones. Then the observation comes in, I noticed the details on the armour of the skeleton warrior. The chainmail and the old torn shirt are very refine and detailed. The skeleton face is deep detailed and bony feel. Overall, its pretty good looking, and once painted, I can imagine it to be an outstanding standard bearer! Then I noticed another Banelegions miniatures, the Vagrant Knight, Oh no! Cheers!
