These men wasn't just your common rabble raised up in times of war. Instead they were trained from a young age to become masters in the art of war. They would bring nobility and fear to the battlefield often leaving the enemy- Germanic or Roman- helplessly defeated. They would be given the best food, weaponry, and loot. Often, one would see them tear off their armor as they go berserk during the fighting. Given that their bodies are covered in warpaint, it would raise fear in the enemies ranks.
The model itself is pretty Hi-Poly and was never meant for in-game use. However it has been re-topologized for better use when rigged. Also the website URL will take you to sketchfab, so you can view it in 3D.
