Barbarians at the Gate

The news seems to have broke about TSSD's upcoming playset.  You can find it on various forum boards and such.

Germanic Spear Tips
I'm happy to say that I've talked with Nick at TSSD, and he's graciously allowed me to ride his coattails a bit.  We'll be releasing figures in metal to go along with their playset.  We'll even be using the same sculptor so that the styles and size will match up perfectly.  I've been researching weapons and clothing of the era, and have got at least 7 or 8 good reference sources in my possession to help us design the figures.  We'll strive to make them as realistic as possible, while still making exciting poses.

I can tell you that, from what I've seen and heard of the work TSSD has done on this playset, it will be a must-have for plastic collectors.

Rock on!

Are they Germanic barbarians or Celtic barbarians?

These will be Germanic tribesmen.
