Looks great – I’ll be sure to grab a couple boxes! These guys will make fantastic Dark Ages warriors from pretty much anywhere in Europe, not to mention generic fantasy warriors and civilians – for fantasy purposes, they’ll serve equally well for humans, elves, and even Tolkien-style goblin-men (just add spare Wargames Atlantic goblin heads!)
If Wargames Atlantic doesn’t already have plans for elves, then they should really do an “accessory sprue” of heads and other bits suitable for converting this kit to elves. (It would definitely NOT be illogical to use the elf heads for Vulcan or Romulan style generic sci-fi armies!)
I agree completely with Red Bee: The human heads are fantastic – a nice variety of timeless bearded heads with plenty of spares that would mix well with the Dark Age Irish, the Afghans, the Persians, or even the French Resistance or other “modern” kits to add variety. Along with the great all-purpose costumes and gear, like the Persians and Irish, this is another great “generic” warrior kit to stock a bitz bin with, or to build any of an almost endless variety of fantasy or historical armies from!
@Benjamin – you’re not mistaken: there’s something missing, but I don’t think it’s anything exciting: by the looks of things, it looks like it’s just one of the sword-in-scabbard, identical to the two next to the missing bit.
