More Picts

Once I start a SAGA warband, I like to paint up all options.  And Picts have lots to choose from!  Reinforcements from the painting table include:
  • 12 Footsore crossbowmen who'll run as levy. 
  • Fenris Games terrain including a Celtic cross for when I run the Picts as Scots, a Celtic-themed temple floor and rocks with Celtic swirls.  I love Fenris' stuff!  
  • Warlord Games Celtic chariot.  I bought this because the Picts can mount their warlord in a chariot and Footsore hasn't yet released their Pict chariot.  I loved the energy of the naked warrior so much I decided to make him a warlord. He looks like he's shouting orders to his troops or getting ready to launch himself into combat.  
  • Footsore war hounds.  These huge and wonderful dogs looked so cool I had to paint them up.  





Lastly, here they're parading as Scots for a local event.  My battle board turned out nicely and I hope to build off what I learned here for the US SAGA Grand Melee next March. This wraps up the Picts and now on to the next thing!

  1. Nice work, Monty. May I ask how you got that bright yellow-green?

    1. Oh yea! I've been fiddling with Zenithal priming and washes/glazes. Citadel's Casandora Yellow is indispensable for a bright base to work off of. The bright greens are Casandora with a little Citadel nightshade mixed in.

      Love your 6mm project!

  3. Very nice indeed Monty. It's probably just the photo but the crossbowman in the middle appears to have a green beard!

  4. Great looking Picts, Monty! The chariot and hounds are particularly cool. The chariot brings back memories of the Airfix set I had so many moons ago.

  11. They look terrific. I am resisting doing Picts, as I have them in 15mm for DBMM, but I may have to succumb as I have just purchased the TFL Dux Brittaniarum 'Raiders' supplement.. this way madness lies, I know.
