In-Box Review
54mm
Running Medieval Knight

Resination is a Hungarian company offering resin figures in 54 mm, 120 mm, 1/35, 1/48 and busts in different scales.Though their popular period is World War II, they cover a wide range of periods from the ancients through the Napoleonic wars and on to the present day.

RE 54-42 Running Medieval Knight is one of their 54 mm. medieval figures sculpted by Krisztian Bodi. It represents a knight running with shield and battle axe.
Kitbox
The figure is packed in a small cardboard box with a photo of figure painted by Tibor Medi. The figure base shown in boxart is not included in the box.

The parts come in a single zip-bag. There was too much excess resin to clean which made me disappointed at first. But then I figured this is a good idea to protect figures as you put them all in a single bag and excess resin was so easy to clean without losing details.
Parts
The figure comes in nine light grey resin parts. All parts are quite well detailed and fit well, but as I mentioned before some cleaning is needed. The torso and legs are cast together. The right foot meets the left ankle and this makes it hard to clean that area between the legs.

Other parts include the helmet, right and left lower portions of surcoat, two arms, a sword, a shield and a battle axe. Lower portions of surcoat are well casted for a running pose and fit well. Arms fit eaisly into position thanks to the holes in the shoulders.The right arm has a good fit to the shield and shield straps are cast well.

The left hand is casted in closed position so there will be two ways to add the battle axe ; cutting the handle into 2 parts and gluing it to the hand or drilling a hole to the hand and attaching the axe to this hole. I
prefer this one.

The axe,sword and shield are also well done, especially battle damage on the shield.
Final Verdict
Due to its quite good resin quality, low price and good posing this figure can be considered as a good choice of a medieval knight on the battlefield.

Since there is no heraldy molded on the figure, it leaves the door open to painting it as a knight from different nations.
