Having no units crossing the painting desk for the 28mm Punic Wars project since the nifty Aventine elephant (see Aventine elephant) last summer, I put enough Celtic/Gallic warriors into the painting queue to field one stand for Impetvs. Checking my painting log, this project has had a much longer hiatus than I guessed. The elephant and runners were the only unit to be fielded for this project in all of 2016! Quite surprising. Perhaps not so surprising since it has been a long time since this collection has seen action on the gaming table.
These dozen figures are all from Black Tree Designs. Excellent sculpts that present a fierce and motley appearance. Perfect warband for either heckling or helping the Romans in their quest for supremacy.
With one more elephant to be fielded, handfuls of Celts and Germans, and a few Romans, these figures ought to make their way into the painting queue with more regularity. Having so many periods drawing my attention, perhaps that is an unreasonable goal.
