A variety of projects continues marching its way across the painting desk. Today's offering is no exception.
Returning to the 28mm Ancients project are two skirmisher stands of Celtic or Gallic slingers. Figures are based for Impetvs and manufactured by Black Tree Design.
Having recently fielded a warband stand of Celts (see Warband), I figured a little light infantry support was needed for the slowly growing Celtic/Gallic contingent.
While the 28mm Ancients project only saw one unit mobilized in 2016 (see War Elephant), already three units have mustered out in 2017. A second war elephant is working its way into the painting queue with the Libyan runners likely being the first out of the blocks.
In other news, the ACW Pickett's Charge game scheduled for Saturday was postponed due to a number of factors not least of which was the appearance of the hometown University's men's basketball team in the mid-afternoon NCAA National Championship semi-final game. Woot!
I am delighted to report that the Gonzaga Bulldogs pulled out a nail-biting victory against the South Carolina Gamecocks to move on to the National Championship game on Monday night. Quite a feat for a small Jesuit school in Eastern Washington State.
