I think this is a nice little set but great because it has the horse and cart. The cart design isnt that great but its big enough for you to add on to it I suppose. Also I have not seen a grey chest in many other sets at all. i'd give it 7/10 it would be better if the actual cart was better. :)

So THAT'S where the grey chest is from. I've seen them in MOCs, but have never been able to determine where it came from. (Come to think of it, I have a black chest that I've never determined the source of). Other than the chest, though, I don't see anything too exciting. It's not bad, just nothing special.

This week’s set is 6011 Black Knight’s Treasure.

Black Knight’s Treasure, released in 1985, was a treasure cart for the Black Falcons. It has one falcon cart driver, a horse, and accessories. This is the only set that comes with the rare light gray treasure chest.

Wow, I had no idea there was a grey treasure chest, LET ALONE a treasure chest released in 1985?! I thought the treasure chest (well, at least for me personally) premiered in 1987 with the first forestmen set.

Nice little set, but apart from the unique color of some parts (hitch and chest) nothing spectacular back in the days.
I still wonder why so many two-welled cart got this hinged hitching part. And why so few got the little weels too.

Draconis Terrena> Black chests come from Egypt explorers sets, I have one too, and did seek were it could come from.

Isn't this thread a little old? :lol: but seeing as it's here... parts the cart gets an even score it isn't good or bad it just is. a black falcon, plus a little (my favorite faction) and a chest plus some more.so,
cart= 5/10
minifig=0.5/10
chest=1/10
6.5/10
playability 5/10 it is good as long as you have another set.
design another 5, not good not bad,so,
total, 5.5.
