As part of my ever expanding Gallic campaign,(which is slowly taking over my life!) I have decided to incorporate a migration/invasion from Germania into Gaul,so that not only can I have Germans fighting Romans,but I can also have Germans fighting Gauls!!-where will it end? The first "batch" of Germans that I have painted are from the Suebi (Suevi?) tribe .............................
Twelve warbands of infantry and three units of cavalry-the infantry take a bit of cleaning up,but the end result is worth it.
Detail of the infantry-note the traditional Suebi "Hair knot".
According to "Tacitus" they attacked in a wedge formation-I don't fancy the chances of the guys in the front rank!!!-But what of the rest of the Germans?
