The Lombards/Langobards were a Germanic people who settled Northern Italy in the 6th century and have had a lasting impact on the region. I believe they would make an excellent option of expanding either the Blood Oaths or Decline and Fall lines for several reasons:
-with their lammelar helmets and armor and their titular long beards, they offer a rather unique look compared to other Germanics like the Goths or Saxons
-fought with many of WA's current and planned releases, like the Goths, late Romans, and both Merovingian and Carolingian Franks
-could double as Avars, Gepids, and possibly even invading Magyars
I love the idea of the Lombards being an option, especially since it gives us more lamellar to use and mix with other armies.
While the heads may not be perfect fits, the current goth box would work perfectly as basic Lombard infantry. honestly WGA should just release a series of dark age heads to print alongside the goth box. Carolingian infantry heads, Lombard heads, Viking heads, Saxon heads, etc
It's true the Germanic folks all tended to look pretty samey for several centuries. It would certainly be interesting to know what these people actually looked like!
@Big Boi Kinda of agree, though Carolingian infantry would be intresting if we are talking armor.
@Hudson Adams honestly, Europeans looked sorta of samey for several centuries after the fall of Rome.
