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:
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.
