Some More Celts/Gauls from BTD

Another batch of BTD Celts works its way off the workbench.  Today, a second dozen warriors ready themselves for battle.  As with the other BTD Celts, a mix of poses, clothing, and weapons imparts a sense of an unruly warband.  Perfect for my image of Celts or Gauls charging into battle.
With this arrival, I can now field four Gallic warbands in battle.  Not enough for Telamon but the addition of the three stands of Germans could augment the Telamon army.  Even with the Germans taking to the field, more recruits are needed.  Back to the painting desk to work in a few more Celtic warbands from the pile of BTD figures remaining.  A shipment from NorthStar arrived containing more Celtic lead including enough figures for unit of cavalry.  Perhaps enough figures for two or three more stands of warbands too?  We will see exactly would I received in NorthStar's recent Collection sale.  I plan to work in the occasional dozen Celts in between work on other units.  Before long, I may be able to field my own Telamon Gallic army.  First, though, work returns to 18mm Napoleonics for the 1799 project.

    1. Thanks, Mark! BTD facials features always suggest some bad hombres.

    1. Keith, production ebbs and flows. Many of the recent units were completed before a two week vacation to Africa. Having just returned, it will take time to ramp up production again.

  9. “Back to the to painting desk” you say? I get the feeling you’re almost always at the painting desk with the amount of painted figures you produce. 😀

    Nicely done on this warband. They look the part. 😀

    1. Stew! Well, I just returned from two plus weeks of vacation so it is "back to the painting desk" for me.

      Glad you like my little warband!

  10. really like the multi-poses on the base. I may be losing track of time, but these seem to be flying off the painting table - no doubt a lot of fun to paint with much more variety and freedom for the brush to explore.

    1. Thanks, Norm. I may be losing track of time too...

      I find the stands with more variety take much longer to paint than a uniform stand of troops. The variety is fun, for sure.

  13. I have hundreds of unpainted 28mm Celts, Jon. If you need more figures, hit me up!

  14. Good as always Jon. I always like the splash of colors you get with the Gauls as a counter-point to regiment colors of the Romans.
