Was that really a competition entry or are you scared to admit you chose it yourself

Nice figure, and I can just imagine another figure of old man Steptoe berating poor 'Arold!

Looks like an easy conversion from a fig that already exists.

@ Baggy Sausage: It might well be time to lay off the hard stuff for a while – your mind is clearly addled.
To anyone with 20/20 vision this is obviously a new sculpt made of grey and green stuff modelling putties. Add in that Warlord don't have an existing range remotely looking like this and the conclusion is that someone needs an eye test
@ Korsun0: Very much a competition entry. Most entries seemed to miss the point of it being a fun name so the shortlist was relatively, er, short.

Paul, with the popularity of both Hail Caesar and Saga, perhaps you can launch a new line of Dark Agers?

Plastic Samurai, Koreans, and Ming dynasty troops. We already have at least at least 3 manufactures making Vikings, Saxons, Normans, and other Dark age rabble in plastic. Plus all the metal. It will be like the plastic Greeks. How many guys are making hoplites now? Two or is it four?

Well all said, hell of a nice figure. After I am finished with the "Montrose armies", I'll have to revisit my dark age project and justify adding to the pile of figures.
Say what we will it sure is fun to watch all this stuff coming out. How we all forget the leanness of the 1980s, and earlier, in the hobby

While it is true there are a few manufacturers there are also gaping holes like plastic norman infantry or plastic sets with both armored AND unarmored figures. Besides, we're talking about Warlord! Anything they make will be superb!!!

It would be great if someone could release a plastic set of civilians including peasants, merchants, court officials, & nobles including a few mounted.
It would also be good to see a few more female character figures like Aethelflaeda, Lady of the Mercians, Edith Swanneck, Freydis Eiriksdottir, Matilda (wife to William the Bastard) & her sister Judith (wife to Earl Tostig), etc.

Like the ones that Conquest is about to release in a month or two?
(Yes, those have been quite long under work.)

AND since it is Warlord and there figures are great. AND since they do great little single figure sets and command sets such as Dumb Dyott for ECW and 2 different Zulu command sets both the movie set from Zulu and how they looked in reality (mind you these were from Empress but they are still making them), plus a slew of others. Maybe you will get Matilda and Judith.
Or better yet everyone's favorite Dark Ages Command group:
"Arthur, King of the Briton. Oh stop that grovelling" The horses with coconuts would be a separate pack as well as "Tim"
