i think this is one castle subtheme (faction) that was
WAY under-utilized. I thought they looked very cool.
So minifig-wise, I give this set an A+ for overall theming.
I have 2 minor gripes:
1. Why are the Wolfpack on a island refuge? Were the Forestmen too strong a faction and banished these?
In my opinion, these guys should have had enough skills to hold there own against any force, and would have felt most at home in the forest setting up some trap and attacking in some kind of ambush.
2. Structurally, I have to agree that this set has some
definite short-comings. The overall design of the tower.
And yes, it is too much of a "profile" for this faction.
They would probably feel more at home in a mountainous
cave....but then I highly doubt LEGO would have put out
a mountain set!!
