Just to add more weight to the general discussion. I actually was going to start a new thread about missing shields etc but thought I had better check there wasn't one already going on - and there was!
First of all can I just say how much fun I have had over the last three nights assembling the figures - it took me back to my old Airfix 'multipose' figures days and I really quite enjoyed it. The figures are excellent the heads and torsos fit quite ingeniously to give a lot of flexibility of pose too.
Shields - now that is the area which for me too lets things down. This refers to the Celtic Warriors. I have tried to overlook the shortage but there are now too many figures doing some kind of 'camp' hand on hip type thing! I did wonder if I had received one wrong sprue set and received a duplicate of another. From reading the other posts I can see that this wasn't the case. Please can I add to the case for a weapons pack which can be bought separately. This would have so many uses and would be a real help.
I do love the figures and please don't take the shields criticisms to heart (its not really criticism, more suggestions to improve something that is really good). I could buy lead ones but your plastic ones are great - I just want more of them! A lot more of them!
