Ancient Germans 1/32 - Work in Progress (Hobby Post)

Subsequently I decided I wanted more units for the army to give the Romans a real challenge and also that the new additions should look different. This to reflect that I would be using different figures (Weston) this time and that I wanted a bit more sophisticated dress for them to reflect my ongoing research and so that they could represent different tribes. The first of these new warbands can be seen here:
