The first of twenty Frostgrave Soldiers from Osprey/North Star Figures. Multi part plastics. These were great to paint. Lots of character and and the option of many varied poses. I love the 'loot bags' and other extras (especially the guy holding the lantern in the same box, plus a variation of the same holding a flaming torch). I noticed a player at the recent Lion Rampant Day at Wargames Illustrated HQ a few weeks back using these as part of his medieval retinue. A superb idea I think, and if you discard some of the larger fantasy swords etc and replace them with spears they'll fit right into any mid period medieval game.
