I've been painting historical 15mm for the last few weeks and having completed my assignment I thought I needed a complete change in painting challenge . Sorting through my 'boxes of shame' (my unpainted figures) I came across these figures - I had to sit down and think when and why I'd bought them ? .Years ago I used to help 'S' with his wargaming scenic stall at shows (S&A Scenics) and did about 10 a year , this exposed me to the temptation of buying a lot more figures than I do now . There was a fantasy wargame called 'Celtos' set in a mythical earth - the rules were a bit bland (?) and disappeared without really taking off , the figures however were rather nice in a sort of 'Conan' cartoony way and I picked up quite a few when they where being sold off cheap with the demise of the rules and they have lain in a box under my table till now !.
One of the races were Dwarves from the Far North who raided everybody else and were coloured blue (?!) (cos of the cold ?) , I started painting them a more natural colour - but wasn't happy with it - it is meant to be fantasy after all - so went with the original 'Celtos' colour scheme . Here is Kay-Finn the White Axe and his bodyguard .
I also did a sample human figure - one of the Gael, a sort of Gallic/Scots/ Irish race , here is Culann a Gael Champion , a very dramatic figure indeed !
He is ambushed by Dwarves ! . I'm not sure which rules to use yet , but am considering 'Songs Of Blades And Heroes' .
Since I started doing these figures I have found out that the rules and figures are available once again from http://www.brigademodels.co.uk/ , I'm enjoying painting these figures and will post more photos soon .
