The many tribes of the Britons are here in this revamped plastic and metal boxed set. Now containing a massive 40 of the woad-covered, limed-haired savages with limed hair you can re-enact the battles of such leaders as Caratacus, Venutius or their female counterparts Cartimandua and Boadicea.

There can be few more characterful people than the ancient Britons. With their trademark spikey limed hair and magnificently droopy moustaches and painted with woad battle-markings they were as colourful and they were ferocious.
This boxed set contains enough plastic and metal parts to make 40 Ancient British Warriors (up from the previous 30 models!). With several variants of limed hair and distinctive helmets (such as the ‘horned’ Waterloo helmet) plus new metal shields such as the Battersea-style shield they cut an impressive and rather worrying-looking bunch!
The boxes set also contains a metal upper torso to allow to you to include a British Chieftain as well as new carynx and standards.
More Ancient Britons!

Tribal Chieftain’s often took to the battlefield in chariots – especially the British Celts who excelled at chariot warfare.
This model, inspired by Osprey Publishing’s superb artwork illustrated by the late Angus McBride shows a Chieftain resplendent in the back of his chariot whilst his driver balances on the pole of the chariot.
With the rumble of wooden wheels and a flash of scarlet tresses Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni will soon be making her way onto battlefields at the head of your Celt army in all her haughty and defiant glory.
Famed for her stubborn resistance against the invading Roman Legions in the 1st Century AD, this powerful warrior queen banded together various British tribes to resist Roman occupation.
The Celts used large amounts of slingers in battle, to support their spearmen and to weaken the enemy before a close-quarters encounter. Often made up from those Celts too young or too old to join their tribesfolk in the heart of the battle they provided a withering hail of stones into the enemy lines as well as acting as a skirmish screen.
