These showed up in my local brick&mortar so I grabbed them and ran all the way home as fast as I could to do a review (actually I paid for them before I left) link

I thought it said potato review.

Thank you for taking the time to take the photos and post them.

I'm not sure about the Mohawk haircut historically but I'm sure people who have seen various tv shows may appreciate it.

These figures would be good for some generic Dark Ages figures too.

Perhaps part swaps with Conquest Miniatures and Gripping Beast would work.

wmyers, I have doubts about that haircut as well, the upside is that there are many more heads than torsos so I won't get stuck using it…….maybe I will pass them along to my friends that watch "Vikings"

Fine review of some fine looking sprues. Have you by now had time to actually build any of the figures from this set?

I have to admit that the number of bucklers and shields per sprue is surprisingly high: by my counting 18 of those for 6 figures. That said, there are never too many spare shields in a bits box…

Does anyone make shield transfers for these figures or does someone know of a brand that will fit these figures?

Very cool, where is your brick and mortar?

The figures in this Wargames Atlantic box are a perfect fit with Gripping Beast plastic boxes. They have a slightly different look to them, but you can swap arms, heads, weapons, etc. very easily.

Bandrsntch, Relic Miniatures does transfers for the Wargames Atlantic Irish, as well as their Persians and Skeletons.
