Footsore Miniatures have announced that the warriors of the northern Picts are coming south this January.

The Picts lived in what would become Scotland and remained unconquered by the Roman Empire. Not much is known about their culture, but their name comes from the Latin picti, usually taken to mean painted or tattooed.

Although they were pretty much subsumed by Gael culture in the 11th century, the Picts retained an almost mythological status in our imaginings of the Dark Ages. This warband looks like it would be the perfect counter for the more disciplined forces of Romanised Britain.

Will you lead Footsore’s Picts south of Hadrian’s Wall?
