Painting log: Celtic cavalry

November 9, 2009 8:50 PM - Posted by Robartes - Category: Painting Log

That’s 6 old Wargames Foundry Celtic cavalry done. Together with 6 more which I painted a very long time ago (they are from my first ever army - a 25mm DBA Celtic army. Ah, the memories) they form a 12 man cavalry unit reinforcement for my Celtic army.

Pre basing pic:

Celtic cavalry

The front rank are the newly painted figures, the rear rank the over a decade old ones.

I tried something different wrg glues on these figures. Normally, I glue the riders to the horses and the shields to the riders using super glue. On these, I used hot glue (which I also use to fix the horses to the bases, but I do that more often). I had expected there to be horrible blobs of solidified glue splurting all over the place, but I’m pleasantly surprised as to this: no blobs and everything sticks quickly without the need to do the press-together-for-twenty-seconds-and-then-find-out-if-it-sticks-to-the-figure-or-my-finger routine one does with super glue. Recommended!

That brings this month to 12 painting points. Next up are some more Swedes (finally), this time the Jönkopings regiment.

Jönköping, Bart, je hebt wat problemen met je ö’s blijkbaar ;-)
