The recent game of Telamon has motivated my painting aspirations back toward the Punic Wars project. With that new found inspiration, a dozen Celts from Black Tree Design were pushed into the painting queue. Strike while the iron is hot, so to speak. That is exactly what I did. Off the painting desk today is the first of two such stands suitable for either Impetvs or To the Strongest!
The BTD Celts (or Gauls) have good animation as expected from BTD. I went with simple painting schemes and simple shield designs. As can be seen from the photos, a dozen of these figures are tricky to fit onto 120mm x 60mm stand especially when many are wielding long spears. A good change of pace from recent painting work and provides a slight kickstart return to the Punic War project. Enough figures remain for four more such Celtic stands of warriors. A second stand, as mentioned above, is presently in work. Perhaps if I produce enough Celts/Gauls, I could produce my own Telamon forces. I would need some Gallic cavalry, though.
