Another stand of a dozen Celts/Gauls makes it off the painting desk. Looking at the Painting Log, six such BTD stands can be fielded for battle. Two dozen more BTD Celts are slowly working their way through the painting queue in between other projects. With a small box of Crusader Celts arriving in-house recently, plenty of work remains on building this army. After having painted a number of the BTD figures, it will be fun to switch it up and tackle some Crusader Celts.
When Society of Ancients announced the 2019 Battle Day Game on Telamon, I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to ramp up work on the pile of Celts/Gauls languishing in The Lead Pile. While I knew that fielding a Gallic force in time to participate from afar in this year's Battle Day was unlikely, the battle announcement and background material found in Slingshot provided a motivation for more study on the battle while my army grew. Knowing that battle reports of others' Telamon exploits will begin appearing in future issues of Slingshot, I plod away on my army to come to grips with this battle.
How many Gallic warbands will be needed for Telamon? The answer to that question remains unknown. Much depends upon the approach I take on the battle. Still more research and painting remains. Until then, expect a scattering of Celts/Gauls for Telamon throughout the painting queue.
