These rather fabulous Warlord Dacians have appeared on my painting table. First off, I didn't paint them. They are the work of those clever folk from Reinforcements By Post run by that nice man Neil Kenneally in Bangladesh. They did all the excellent paintwork and they have just come to me in order to be based up so they match the Romans. Enjoy; lovely painting, my usual crappy photos don't even begin to do them justice.
Fairly mad poses from these, I based them with a mixture of 2 and 3 figures to a 40mm x 40mm base. Some figures were difficult to get 3 on a base, 4 was absolutely impossible. Nonetheless, I think they work just fine as they are.
Sheilds are transfers from Warlord/littleBig man Studios- they make so much difference.
Done a great job on the flesh, just as well, there are a lot of bare chested fellows on show, and their little tartan trousers are terrific- Rupert The Bear would happily wear them!
I think these are basically just the Gallic Warriors set with some different heads plus some of the Dacian nobles set. No Falxmen in this lot.
2020 painting total:So far about 300 Swiss pike, and 20 handgunners, 5 guns and 4 command stands. plus about 32 mounted crossbows, 60 Gendarmes, 100 Landsknecht pike and 18 skirmishers! I’ve been a blur! i
