Overall Impression

The models in this book revolve around the theme of castles and those who live in them. While the castles themselves look nice, I don't like the appearance of the other humans and animals.

In the end of the book there are some suggestions for characters and scenes composed form the units taught.

They are made of too many units for my taste, with a result that does not justify that. So if you're into building castles from plenty of various units, you should buy this book. If you're more interested in monsters and mages, you should try a different book.
