Fighting principally as infantry, the Dacians allied themselves with the highly skilled horsemen, and women, of Sarmatia, making a balanced and very powerful enemy force to fight, as the Romans found out to their cost.
The most terrifying and effective Dacian troops were those armed with the lethal falx – a wicked looking double-handed war scythe that could shatter a shield and carve off a limb with a single blow. So fearsome was this weapon, the Romans developed additional armour to protect arms, legs and heads from it’s devastating impact.
The boxed set contains 42 plastic & metal foot figures, the plastics being based on 4 of the Celt frames reviewed elsewhere on this site, also included are full-colour waterslide shield design decals. Also included in the boxed set is a carnyx and a standard bearer.
