Wargames Atlantic Dark Ages Irish

       I have to say that I was delighted when I saw that Wargames Atlantic was going to release this set. They will present a perfect opponent for my Post-Roman army and they nicely fill a gap in the Field of Dark Ages Plastics (how many set of Vikings and Saxons do we really need?). I was even more pleased when I got home and opened the box; the miniatures are very well executed, proportions, detail and casting are all top-shelf quality. Molded in a firm, flash free gray plastic there are six different poses and two different dogs (nice big wolfhounds). These are multi-part figures so I'm likely to spent as much time trying out different poses and equipage as I do painting them. But don't take my word for it, look at the pictures below and decide for yourself. As for me, I might just go get another box.......

the back of the box

contents; five identical sprues

front of the sprue

back of the sprue

excellent detail and very cleanly cast

lots of different faces,
 they appear to be shouting for more whiskey!

the rest of the heads

the dogs are excellent

the clothing is accurate and drapes well over the figure

deeply sculpted models like these are a dream to paint

not a trace of flash and the mold lines are nearly invisible

proportions and posing are well done too

nice Doggy!

       If you are building a dark Ages Irish or Pictish army this will be a valuable set. The quality is absolutely first-rate and the price beats metal minis by miles.

       Very Highly Recommended!


  1. I picked up their skeletons box a few months ago and was equally impressed. Great manufacturer and a welcome addition for sure.

  2. Great pictures. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Nice stuff. Building a box at the moment and are excellent. Also have some of their halflings which are equally nice
