My Celtic army

March 7, 2006 8:52 PM - Posted by Robartes - Category: Pictures

Those of you following this blog know that we’re currently involved in a WAB Escalation Campaign, where the armies grow from 500 points in size to a large size over the course of the campaign. We’re currently in Round 4, where the nominal point size would be 1250 (we’ve been working with increments of 250 points), but we’re allowing a range of 1000 - 2000 points to account for different painting speeds of the various players.

I’m on the slower side of the painting speed distribution, and my Celtic army has only just reached 1000 points (minus four models, but who’s counting :) ?). This entry is a photo introduction of this army.

Without further ado, here’s Bartolomix’ warband. You can find these pictures in their own set on my Flickr account as well as here below.

On to the next 1000 points. At 5 points per warrior, that’s only 200 more .

Very good looking figures. Did you make the movement trays yourself?

I always considered movement trays a sin against visual appeal, but these look good.

Hi Phil,

the movement trays are the classic GW ones, cut to size and then painted and flocked. I find that as long as you finish the movement bases the same way as your figure’s bases, they are not too distracting and actually work well wrg to visual appeal.

Thanks for the comments!

I love these Celts! I have just started my own Celtic force and it was good to see someone elses. The only problem is… need hundreds of them to make up a 2000pt army, they’re great fun to paint though and make a nice change to painting rows of identical Romans.Great stuff, I look forward to seeing more of them.If your interested, my blog is
