They look really tasty!

I'm thinking of all those wonderful big army movies, The Water Margins and things like that.

I even think that the heroic sized figures are cool, because a) it's a style thing in line with the stories, and b) it sort fits with how I would use these in games eg a general would be a reduced figure unit, with elevated status.

And the bright colours!

Yes, I also like the look of these new figures from Miniknight/Caesar. Creating figures which are 'larger than average' to represent champion warriors/heroes/kings is an interesting concept which fits with this subject I feel. And it works well for gaming purposes.

As for The Water Margins as mentioned by Mr Pickstock....well, I remember the film dramatization of this being shown on BBC TV in the UK in the 1970s and loving it! I had no idea what the origin of the stories was, but the whole thing was surreal and very good...although the dubbing into English was a little strange... :shock:
