More additions to my Roman Invasion Of Britain forces.  My first Romans- a small unit of auxiliary archers.  And just to keep things balanced a unit of celt archers.  More warlord games figures but metal this time. Nice figures- my only complaint is that they had a fair amount of flash to clean up before .  On the other hand they paint up really easily and have a perfect period feel.

So these 16 figures bring my total for 2012 to 105 foot, 5 cavalry and one civilian.

Even more celts

I've added another war-band to my Celts.  These are again Warlord games figures- again a pleasure to paint.  I discovered that in my last order from Warlord I had mistakenly ordered two of the Celtic army standard bearer.  The leader of this warband is therefore a simple conversion of this figure with the standard replaced by a sword.  Again I've sought to arrange the figures in a pattern which gives a sense of movement to the formation.  Also pictured blow is my first command figure who is also from warlord games. I cut the head off a Roman casualty figure to add extra gore. Another warband will follow soon.  

This brings my 2012 tally to a total of 89 foot/5 cavalry/ and 1 civilian
