thank you NORTIVS MAXIMVS, haven´t seen these - I´m sure these didn´t get announced
I´m also looking forward for the next newsletter
To be honest... they are a bit like what I feard... they look too much like the Celts for my taste. A completely new sprue would have done wonders here IMHO.
Well, I held them in my grubby paw today, and had a really good look at them. I thought they appeared surprisingly different to the Celts or Britons - yes, the poses of most of the figures are the same, but the extra metal torsos, replacement heads, etc, do make a huge difference.
Not even brand new sprues were needed, a recut sprue such as the Veterans or Praetorians are from the Legionary sprue would have been great. The bodies look too much like the Celts… at least they aren't as similar as the Celts and Britons are!
I don't want to be too harsh in criticism, but Wargames Factory are bringing everything out in plastic, full stop. Surely a core unit such as Dacian Warriors should be plastic?
Actually, after a bit of thought I'll reserve judgement until seeing the entire range of Dacians. There may be enough distinctive metal units to make the army clearly 'Dacian' rather than Celtic... and of course the Sarmatians!
