An excelent set of Sci-Fi figures with an oriental feeling. High-tech samurai armor and plasma weapons, meditating monks conjuring balls of lightning, black suited ninja, and the oriental dragon is really a figure to stand out.
The work of David Kiladecus Wears becomes yet more and more impressive as he solidifies his status as a professional figure artist. Era of War: Xiarn Dynasty brings us original models of quality - which, although intended for his Era of War tabletop battle game, would adapt well as NPCs and unique monsters in RPG settings. Don't be put off by the instructions to trim such detailed work so closely - the figures work just as well with square or oval trimming.
It is really very exciting to see a universe reveal itself before your eyes and that is exactly what this series of Era Of War minis appears to be doing. The more I find out about the background and game, the more intriguing it appears to me.
The standout figures in this set for me are the Dragon (Love the colour and size of the thing) and the Conscript (which is very well drawn). The Samurai is just bad-ass. He oozes power. Nicely done. Love the cel-shaded look of things.
This set also includes outdoor bases for those who want to have a consistent appearance. It's nice to switch up the bases to show factions or sides.
Keep up the good work!
