No, but i've seen them and while not bad...i'd well and truly recommend the ira range from footsore miniatures as being vastly superior, also some of footsore's vbcw range would work fine.

I would agree with Kommando_J , I was very disappointed with the pack I bought, worse than the worst Old Glory.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it anymore and what is it seems weird and scary.

Some of the packs are identical to the VBCW packs. They are too small to mix well with Musketeer/Footsore but it is a full range and also cheap, it just has some odd poses and the castings are a little rough in places.

Reiver are fine if you want to build a force cheaply, and are not too bothered by sculpting style.
If you intend to use Footsore and Reiver, them keep them in seperate units, as IMHO they wouldn't mix very well together due to size difference and style.
