Add to Wish List


This pack contains eight Illyrian infantry.

Illyrians were renowned warriors, according to ancient sources. They were known as skilled craftsmen and ship builders in ancient times and controlled much of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas using their numerous warships.

Illyrians had effective weapons such as the sica, a curved-tipped sword that originated in Illyria and was eventually adopted all over the Balkans and used later by the Romans. The Illyrian tribes had been already heavily Celticized by the time Romans conquered Illyria in 168 B.C. and the equipment of these figures reflects this.
