'East' from JamesL: Dacians

These lads are part of my ongoing DBA slow grow, and join the falx men element I have posted previously. The three elements are Falxmen Fast Blade, Fast Warband and a two man skirmisher unit, Psoli.


for these I am trying a split complementary colour scheme, a technique I found on the excellent ModelDads blog, which discusses the use of the colour wheel in choosing colours. A pleasant change from Oak leaf camo!!


Hand painted shield for the Warband is a must, less I incur the wrath of Dux and the mirth of PaulOG!


The skirmishers have proven to be as tough as nails in the 4 games I have played (with unpainted figures shock horror!) which has surprised both myself and my opponents...

  1. Nice one mate - 28mm DBA is old school coolness!
    I remember hating Psoloi so much...

  3. These guys are super-aggressive, the posting is quite alarmingly hostile, and your painting makes them seem quite scary.

  4. A ferocious looking band of ruffians. The falx has always struck me (figuratively thankfully) as a terrifying weapon. Nasty lads.
