Sacul was a small company owned by a Mr Lucas, the company name being his surname in reverse.
The armour on these knights is very shiny because he used an electroplating method.

At the end of the lead era, Mr Lucas closed down 'Sacul', and started making plastic soldiers/figures under a new brand name, 'Paramount'.

All lead Sacul and plastic Paramount items are rare and difficult to find. Indeed only a few of the most geeky  study  geek  plastics collectors even know the Paramount brand existed.

Scale is 1:32 or a bit smaller (such as the Cherilea Crusaders)

I've found specially interesting the information about Sicul/Paramount and the manufacturing detail. Very Happy
It is also great that all are 54mm and that they work nicely together. Very Happy
