    Comparison: Warlords Celts vs. Wargames Factory Celts

    I thought it was about time someone did a review and comparison between the Warlord plastic Celts and the Wargames Factory Celts. I figured since I've ordered both, I would go ahead and perform this service for those still undecided between the two.

    Below are two pictures. The Warlord figure is on the left, the Wargames Factory figure is on the right.

    As you can see, the sculpting, proportions and detail are all fairly well done on the Warlord figure. The Wargames Factory figure, on the other hand, suffers from not being delivered yet.

    The Warlord figure is animated and dynamic, while the Wargames Factory figure is still not here yet. As nice as Warlord's dynamic poses are, it could present a problem when ranking up a unit. Wargames Factory figures are at the moment easier to rank up, but will still look somewhat odd on the battlefield, since they've still not been delivered.

    I'm still in the assembly stages, so I can't say how well each one paints up compared to the other, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that the Warlord figures will be easier to work with because they are actually in my possession.

    A couple gripes that I have with Warlords figures are -- and this has been mentioned by many others -- the fact that they only came with enough shields for 50% of the figures, and I'm also disappointed there wasn't a little more variety in the number of different heads. Still, this is nothing compared to the lack of Wargames Factory shields or heads or any other pieces, really.

    So overall, I'd have to admit a preference for Warlord Games at this point.

    ROTFLMAO.

    It's been a long day so far. Thanks for the humor.

    Well, with at least the Romans (and British Zulu wars) shipping by WF, we may see some real comparision not too far away.

    I still have some hopes for WF, even when they are overenthusiastic in their timetables.

    Well you got me. Review of non-existent figures. Shame its not 1st April (but perhaps I would have been more cautious).

    But the Wargames Factory ones are so easy to paint...

    As I mentioned elsewhere, I'm just having a bit of fun with it.

    I'm a little irritated, but I will do a serious comparison/review when (if) the figures I pre-ordered come in.

    HAHA, you almost had me.

    Those warlord models are as tasty like a burger king in the playboy mansion.

    However, don't forget that those Wargames Factory Celts will be able to use the 'stealth' special ability, since it will be harder for the enemy to spot them. This allows them to launch cunning ambushes and surprise attacks!

    These are only hampered a bit in efficiency when you count up their strength to determine the number of hits
