Very nice! Did your sister help you with the photos? (the new spiders!!)  :D

I really like the size of the new spiders, and the golden jackal and scorpion are both great additions.

I love the golden dog  :love: :love:   Jackal!?  :-[

The grey skeleton looks cool. It would liven up an undead army a bit. :D

Had heard there were History sets but hadn't seen any yet. Looks very interesting!

Thanks for the excellent photos!  I have one complaint, though - now I am compelled to acquire this beautiful blue pyramid.  8} :D   

Looking forward to the rest of your reviews for this theme!

The great thing with reviews is that they draw attention to things not previously noticed.  I hadn't realised that the skeleton and the mummy were darker in this set.  They are very nice - especially the skeleton!

I like those spiders too.  And yes, the golden dog is Anubis (in Greek - Anpu or Inpu in Egyptian, I believe) - the jackal god, Guardian of the dead.  He's most frequently depicted as black, often with a human body (like in the picture on the shrine he is lying on), though I like the representation of him laying down best.  And he's very nice in gold.

I loved your photo of Tut with Anubis.

Yes :)   Will need to try and get a few... but they are not in iberia yet, and I don't want to provoke them.

Really? This is public for a long time, and available all over Europe.

Glad to be of service  :P

Looking forward to the rest of your reviews for this theme!

Well, a couple more ready, if I have the time to actually put them online... The others well on the way too.


my kind of theme  :love:

And ours  :love:

The skeleton I noticed right in the first pics - I like (human) skeletons.. The mummy.. I don't remember  ::)

And yes, the golden dog is Anubis (in Greek - Anpu or Inpu in Egyptian, I believe) - the jackal god, Guardian of the dead. 

I should probably call him a jackal then...  :-[

I loved your photo of Tut with Anubis.

My sister immediately said the golden pup should be his! He agreed, of course :)
