Introduction


One more heads set from MIG Productions.
This one called Mediaeval Hairstyles, in 54 mm, it really features 5 differents heads, with characteristic haircuts for the specific era. Sculpted by Einion Rees

The Set


In a plastic bag with no further protection (not that is really needed) we have 5 heads. They come in cream color resin and they are very well casted with absolutely no problems or any flaws or bubbles of any kind.

Quality - Detail - Expressions


All of them are differently sculpted so there are no repetitions in the set. All expressions are mostly “flat” with no exaggerations of shouting, or anger or pain , or anything different.Sculpture is really good, and will help painter for sure.

These heads can easily be used in improving other figures quality, replacing standard kit heads, plus that u can use them on newly sculpted figures, if u don’t like to sculpt the head of them.

They follow nicely the medieval habits for hair and facial hair shaping, so they will give strong character to ur figure .

Conclusion


Useful and different set for sure. My only suggestion is that maybe some more dramatic expression could be used in one or two of them to give some more variety, in case u d like to make a figure in action

Highly Recommended

About Costas Rodopoulos (Major_Goose)
FROM: KIKLADHES, GREECE / Ελλάδα

I started modelling 27 years ago with some 1/72 planes and military vehicles. Soon the diorama bug got into me and with Sheperd Paynes books I dug in. I loved to build dioramas and military vehicles till the Vietnam Era. I don't like modern stuff so much. 4 years ago I had a crush on figure painti...
