Actually, my first thought was to use the Pict range painting the clothing a mix  of browns, creams, greys, black and white to represent animal skins and the natural dyes used for textiles.

Good call  Thumbs up

Lemmey hadn't splashed the cash when I bought the ancient Indians - and Howard's Picts are more akin to Native Americans than ancient Scots in style anyway (what with living in a jungle and using tomahawks! Wink )

Ancient Indians aren't bad...but I just can't get away with the running flat out pose in any period! lol.

Fair enough - Wink

Wondered that myself when I started my obsession with interest in things Sumerian.

Earliest currently known to archaeology is around 30,000-35,000 years ago, from a cave in Georgia (No, not the US state, the former Soviet Republic!)

Far more extensive evidence is found at Çatalhöyük in Turkey, which existed from c.7500BCE to c.5700BCE, ten thousand years or so ago.

Northern European Bronze Age starts around 2100-ishBCE or just over four thousand years ago.

Well there you go. Thanks Ithoriel.

You could give your headman/hero some coloured clothes to make his stand out.

Well if you don't know that much about North European Bronze Age heroes, I'm not going to help you.  Smug

Stefano

The fresco that this reconstruction is of appears to be from c1350BCE and is usually interpreted as warriors from Pylos (in boar's tusk helmets) dealing with local bandits or raiders.

The Northern European Bronze Age is normally dated from around 1200BCE, so around a century and a half later.
