After having browsed through the posts a bit it seems all has already been said about those Celts.
I guess I'm just posting here as an intoduction....and to share my opinion and ask a few questions....
Celts from warlord games pros and cons (to make it nice, short and organised)
-They're actually there, and the new plastic trend makes them much cheaper than the metal ones.
-Superb sculpts. nuff said.
-Warlord Games as a company and a one-stop shop has so far demonstrated extreme promise, and treat their customers like they deserve ...
cons : (ok seems longer but they're mostly secondary issues really)
-Shields (has been discussed over and over, i agree with the other every-one-a-shield-obsessed history buffs) and I do find the shields a tad tiny...
-Poses and armament : dunno makes them look too much like the archetypal barbarians and i'd like them loolking more civilised, and there are too many swords as compared to spears and javelins
-They seem too "british" and the chariots coming up next do confirm this trend. It's actually not a con at all, but i put it there to protest as a more continental Gaul-obsessed frenchman... (but it could be just me)
-that's all these guys are great!
As for my questions, well i'd like to know if there are plans to release Gaul cavalry, characters (not druids, which seldom saw any fighting on the Continent and are quite late comers from Britain actually) and Soldurii heavy infantry at all? (or naked warriors?)
Late continentals would have looked more ordered with a high proportion of helmets amongst the elite (few mail) decorated by plumes or animal hair and such. Commoners would probably not have longswords at all, but spears or shortswords and javelins.
Thank you for these nice boyz (oops) and looking forward for more!
PS : is there any plan on doing other armies soon, such as .... hoplites (please please please with a cherry on top?)
