I used the baseplate as a lions rock in my Daktari diorama in Wolfsburg.

Thanks for the review, but I think I'll pass.

One question Id like to ask is whether the yellow sash on the barbarian fits perfectly with the furry collar, or whether it is slightly too thick for it?

Also, I wish they couldve given the same barbarian a couple of cuffs. I hate it when the whole arm is supposed to be bare, as in this case, and you get the wrist showing like that. Bare arms should be like the Roman ones, if you see what I mean, seamlessly going from arm to hand.

The other figure, I don't like him much. I think his nappy-belt is silly, as is his bob haircut, but that's just me.

It's a nifty little set. I'm sure I will get it when it becomes available here.

Great review Panos. Im not into dragon yet but this could be a good start!
Just one question... what is the yellow ground suppossed to be?  :-[

Thank you Gaston!
Probably sand of same kind, plain ground... or any kind of dust found in fiery surfaces... mix of phosporus and sulphur maybe?
Let your imagination run wild  ;)

Was it bought by you MISB?  If so, it's worth contacting German DS for the parts and, in any case, to let them know of the failure of quality control.

Yes it was Gordon! Good advice I'll look into it when I'll manage!

Great review, Panos, as your reviews always are.  Thank you.  :wave:

The landscape seems to suggest a hot climate, a palm tree, sand and rock, so I would have thought that the dark-skinned figure is a dragon defender or protector of some sort rather than  a dragon slayer.

Thank you my friend! I'm glad you liked it!

Good point on the dark skinned chap... certainly a good point... and maybe he could be in league with the bluish knight who can be the defender of the tomb...so many scenarios  :)

Just the missing link  ;). The landscape was used before in 3127 Pirate starter set -> http://playmodb.org//backs/3127_back.jpg

HI

Great review of a neat little set. I for one am glad Playmoibl is making so many colored dragons . All we need to wait for is if it will make it to the US

Even though you got it out of your area I would still contact DS and complain about the missing parts.

Thanks Ras! I do hope you get it too! As I replied to Gordon's post regarding the missing parts, I'll give it a go!
