Set in the France of the early Seventeenth century The Three Musketeers is the story of the struggle between the two centres of power, the church and the monarchy, between the ineffectual Louis XIII and his flamboyant court and the scheming Cardinal Richelieu and his agents.
Both factions employed elite bodyguards which commanded great prestige:The king's Musketeers and the Cardinal's Musketeers. The Adventures of the Musketeers Athos, Porthos, and Aramis with their young ally D'Artagnan are immortalised in the classic works of Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers, The Four Musketeers and The Man in the Iron Mask.
Antique Finish means that the figure is polished first then undercoated in a black paint and that is skillfully rubbed off the highlights and left in the creases and depths so the miniature is brought into strong contrast. This is an excellant alternative to fully painted versions of the miniature. All pieces are designed by our internationally famous designer Chris Tubb.
Price includes chess board (choose which type) and deluxe chess case.
Scale is 54mm.
