Today, the first two models of Fianna's unit, and what was this strangely-sounding non-Irish warrior group you will find from the article below.
Figures come from FOOTSORE MINIATURES from their line of miniatures from the early medieval period of Ireland. I hope you like it!.

To help with this entry, I asked an Irishman, history and miniatures lover. What was Fianna? I invite you to journey with Ronan Duggan into the world of history, interspersed with myths, to the mighty and brave Ireland!
