    Looks really nice, does it come with a gambeson? Not sure about the accuracy of the trousers.

    I wonder what Tony thinks about its accuracy overall?

    It is a little hit and miss. The breastplate is good but it is rare for these to be worn without a backplate. The neck gorget is good. The helmet and wrist bracers are fantasy. The shoulder pauldrons are too big and historical armour rarely had symmetrical shoulder pauldrons; the left pauldron is usually larger than the right. The articulated plates on the upper arm shouldn't reach down near the elbow. The gauntlets are very cool. The tassets hanging off the breastplate on the thighs are ok. The articulation on the knees should be at the back of the leg, not on the front under the knee cop. It is hard to see the sabatons on the feet but they seem to be ok. The mail shirt doesn't look realistic but that is forgivable; the only way to get authentic-looking mail is to make it from thousands of tiny links, which costs a fortune. The mail should be a lot longer - reaching down to the thighs. The long pants are ok but should fit the legs more tightly.

    Jousting armour didn't have symmetrical shoulder pauldrons. Jousting armour didn't have a gorget that small. Jousting armour never incorporated a helmet shaped like that. Jousting armour never had those weird articulated plates on the upper arm - a lance hitting those would rip off the plates and destroy the arm. They should be articulated with the overlap running the other way like the leg tassets and shoulder pauldrons. Proper upper arm rerebraces are just one solid plate; the articulations should only cover the shoulder.

    I wonder with regard to the articulation of the arms couldn't the same be said of the shoulder pauldrons that being said i can see your point about the over lap being the wrong way. i also query his sword it seems too big and out of scale even for a hand and a half sword

    Anything that reminds me of Dark Souls has my attention. Cool helmet!

    I really like this figure, but CooModel is so damn slow to get stuff to market, that I think I'll wait a while.

    My wife ordered their 12 Paladins of Charlemagne figure for me for my birthday (end of Nov.) It was supposed to have a Q4 2016 release, but it's still nowhere in sight. Updated release shows Q1 2017, but we're rapidly running out of Q1.

    Seems like I waited forever to get the CooModel werewolf, too. Well worth the wait, but damn...

    I really love their designs, but hate the time lag.

    It really kind of pisses me off that we have to yield to a Chinese business model for most figures these days. I don't live in China.

    Just an FYI, but timewalkertoys.com is supposedly getting their Paladins in next week (Feb 19th).

    If 80% of the armor is in fact metal, then it can be modded to be more realistic
    if that's your end game goal.

    It's hard enough to just get metal armor, but this looks like it fits better than most.

    Looks very cool! Not really accurate, but cool. Appears based off a video game or movie or TV show.

    Also, the head sculpt seems to have a young Sean Connery vibe, IMHO.

    I said it didn't have a backplate. I may be mistaken but a photo of the back would be helpful. Sometimes a model can look great from the front but complete rubbish at the back. I hope it does have a backplate - the torso armour is the best part.
