From the enclosed instructions "The figure depicts a Celtic chief. The Celtic warriors did notfavour the use of armour. They preferred to fight almost completely nude. Only the chiefsused helmets and ornaments."This photo shows his shield which was painted withbright anthropormorphic designs.
The model came in multiple pieces which I pinned and epoxied together.I think I would have had better results with the pants if I heldoff with the placement of the shield. The shield blocked easy accessto painting the pants.
The hand and the spear were also separate, but I waited until thelast moment to epoxy those in place.Rather than use the supplied white metal spear, which lookedlike a wet noodle, I cut a new brass wire spear, which looksa lot more straight and deadly.
I hope you enjoyed reading the details of the paintingand photographing of a large miniature of a Celtic Senon ChiefPerhaps these hints will help with painting ancient warriors.
