let me start by saying it was the cheapest set I ever purchased. If I had more money as a kid I'd probably would have buy at least 10 of it or even more.
It has a great minifig that is only available in two more sets. You call him peasant, I as a kid use to refer to him as a robber. Probably because on set 6055 he is taken as prisoner. Got a lot of weapons for a releative small set, include the a dark gray round shield and a black hammer. As it refers in the set name 'Supply Weagon', I guess you can say he was selling the weapons for the soldiers after the Blacksmith (in set 6040) finished making them. It contains a treasure chest but because the real treasure chest brick was made only in 1985 (in 6011), this one is made from simple red plates and a slop roof part. (berrel however were introduced only in 1988 so of course this set couldn't have one).
It does contain 'Animal Horse Hitching with Hinge' in blue which is relative unique http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/4587
. It was in blue only in two more sets.
For a small set it is a great set and was really worthing it back then so I guess 8/10.
