Naked is sooooo last year Hermann!
The changing fashions of Ancient warfare.
I couldn't help myself this week as Foundry produced a crazy deal on their 'collection' ranges. Going there to look at successors, I was side tracked into buying some Ancient Germans. I have always loved their Ancient German cavalry but could never go the distance on their new wacko prices.
I have amassed a giant German army from Black Tree Design but always promised myself some Foundry Cavalry when the time was right. Well, with this deal bringing their crazy prices down to what they were about three years ago...the time was right. Thanks for the tip off Big Red Bat.
However, attached to one of these collections was a group of naked savages. Now to appease my friend on the war games table, I may have to cover these sky clad warriors with a little 'green stuff'. As the period we are playing (early Imperial), warriors had become a little more modest with their equipment. Hermann, didn't get the memo about the new dress code.
