Skirmishing Celts...sorry Nan
Another group of skirmishing Celts join the throng. I have decided to dip all my Celts from now on unless they're somebody really important. It just means I can produce hundreds of them in a month. I'm also impressed with the quality of the stain If painted on with a brush rather than dipped. The shading looks good and in some cases, even looks better than some of my old paint work...sigh. I may use this technique for my ancient Germans and ECW ranges as well.
One tip I use is to spend a little time on the shield, the detail helps to take the eye off the simple paint work on the figure. Little Big Man studio shields are a big help here too. As you can see, I am making the most of having loads of freed up bases now the French have been moved on to bigger ones.
