The ultimate infantry army builder, with the perhaps most respected and some of the most beautifully designed figs ever (the only one that is missing is a Shadow Knight).
The only thing that is missing is a round shield. Oh, and you get your own "Jojo" spearman.
A question, is it one brown and one black halberd or two black?
To answer the questions and remarks in the quote above first.
1. Shadow knight is KKII and not classic castle as we all know. There is 20 years between them!
2. Round shield would be perfect, agree to that.
3. There is one brown halberd and one black, the BF has a brown halberd while the Crusader has the black halberd but they can be switched (black
halberd looks better on black
I happen to have 2 of this set. These were not assembled by me but I purchased 2 sets back in 1984 or 1985 (bought it together with 6010 + 6011 + 6021) and I also still have their original boxes (which were opened when I was 11 years old so there are a few rips and tears) + the original small inlay catalogues that came with each set.
I must agree that this is one of the best small castle sets ever released by TLC. It could use a round shield. I consider it equal to 6103 although that set has more factions and a peasant with a pitchfork (I happen to like peasants and blacksmiths since they can be the angry oppressed faction that marches against the king and his unfair tax laws).
All in all a great set and I am happy that I decided to get 2 when they were available in the stores.
Final remark: why doesn't Lego release minifig sets anymore? I think 6105 medieval knights (in 1994) + 6031 fright force (in 1998) were the last of the bunch (apart from the Ninja sets that I personally hate). Both 6105 and 6031 were weak sets in my opinion. It would be great if they released a Viking minifig set since I can not be bothered with KKII Jayko, Vladek and Danju all added in a minifig set.
