Very good review Andrzej! I like the intro... a good read about the Witchers. Are the other sculpts in this Andrea range based on characters from Sapkowski's novels?

Just one thing; I would suggest using Magic Sculpt or something like that for connecting the parts when photopraphing the "built" model.

Unfortunately not... It's great that Andrea pictured at least Geralt... It's a pitty that such a great subject like Sapkowski's novels is not covered by figures... (all witchers, wizards (Yennefer, Triss, etc...), Cirilla, Boholt and his friends, Yarpen Zigrin and company , Bonhart, Rats, Jaskier... - it would be great set of figures and I would be the first one to have them all ).

Thanks for a tip - I just wanted to show very good balance of this figure so I did not use any glue. Fit of the right hand (as I've mentioned in the review) is not very good and Magic Sculpt wouldn't help... It will need some delicate correction (some delicate filing and sanding).

Thanks again!

Thanks for the review, Andrzej. I've been a fan of this series from Andrea for a while, but only recently picked up one of the range - and I must say what a difficult decision it was to choose just one

Regarding the MS comment, personally I prefer to show the figures assembled with either only poster tack (e.g. Blu-Tak) or in the case of a plastic figure, plastic cement or CA. I personally don't like seeing reviews with the figures puttied and filled as then I have no idea about the size or severity of the gaps or how much work will be involved in correcting the issues. Just my personal opinion...

I also picked up one of the figures in the range as I was very impressed with the boxart pictures... I loved seeing the sculpts come to life in those Spanish figure forums; I think Joaquin did most of the figures in this series and he is a very talented sculptor.

As for MS; I understand what you mean, Rudi. I'm using MS in my reviews simply as a mean of holding the pieces together for the photoshoot... perhaps it is not the best option.
