If you can find them anywhere there are a few miniatures by the Perry's for the Bronze Age Range they did for Foundry, a middle aged woman, a young girl and a travelling smith/metal worker and they would fit in fine

What make are they?

Look good for the rioting figures I have been collecting for Vox Populi (if the rules ever emerge!).

Checked them, not sure, looks too much action?

but found these girls, they are absolutely the cream of the crop!


Cheers,

I remember there was also a Foundry pack of Thracian women that wouldn't be too complicated to convert. (one or two are wearing that thracian smurf hats, iirc)

Those are absolutely lovely figures. So full of character and natural animation. I have absolutely no use for them at all, but I think I might have to buy some just to paint them  :)

Warlord Games really are an enigma.
They seem intent on churning out a continual stream of new releases in quantity, rather than worrying too much about the quality. These Celtic (or Germanic!) women are superb. But the current Greek stuff they're releasing under the same 'Hail Caesar' banner, bears absolutely no relation to these at all, in either figure style or sculpting quality.
Very peculiar...  ::)

I'd suggest that was because they have bought most of the Greeks in from Immortal Miniatures.  But there are certainly wide variations in quality across their own-initiated ranges.

had yesterday the same idea as well :) I've got the Thracians woman and one of them is already on my painting desk, ready for conversion.

Black Tree do some Viking civilian types which could be used without too much hassle :)
