Warlord Games Celtic Heroes - Command Stands

The two "big guys" on each stand are from the Warlord Games SPQR Heroes set. Along with the bare-chested guy (Lucterius - according to the set) are a previously painted standard bearer and musician. The winged helmet guy (Vercingetorix) has a hound from Black Cat minis.
"Vercingetorix" has a Victrix shield with LBMS transfer.
Gave "Lucterius" a captured Praetorian officer's fur cape lined with purple cloth.
Except for the hound, all the figures are plastic. Actually, the two hero figures are made in a softer plastic - somewhat pliable, like many pre-painted toy figures.
I used the spare hound as the size and pose of "Vercingetorix" takes up quite a bit of the 50mm round base. Didn't want to crowd another "human" figure on it.

Next up is the mounted figure from the set - but I'm trying to modify a spare Victrix horse for him The horse that comes with the set appears very undersized - kind of like a large dog. There's also a Druid figures, but don't plan on painting him up right now. Once the mounted guy is done, I hope to take some pictures of the Celtic army in total.

Thanks again for visiting and wishing you all good health and happy hobby pursuits. Speaking of health, here in the Puget Sound area, we've been blanketed in smoke from fires burning not only in Washington, but also the airflow is bringing up smoke from fires in Oregon and California.

    1. Thanks again, Jonathan. Yes, smoke from fires on the east side were here earlier before the onshore winds picked up. At least it's cool now. Warmest regards, Dean

  3. Shouldn't Vercingetorix have opted for a full sized poodle?

  9. These look great Dean.
    Hopefully you'll not be badly impacted by the fires, we've had an unseasonable week of rain in WI, hopefully some of that will make it your way.

  10. Reminds of the remake of the movie “Italian Job” where the dude is scouting out their next heist and he sees war dogs (okay guard dogs, but you get me) and the scene goes:

    Left Ear: This dude got dogs. I don't do dogs... I had a real bad experience, man.

    Charlie Croker: What happened?

    Left Ear: I had. A bad. Experience. Damn it.

    That’s me across the field of battle and see your Gauls have dogs;)

    They look very nice sir.

    Cheers
    Kevin

  12. Awesome Warlords, Dean!
    God bless you and yours. Be safety. My father worked in Fire Department more than 20 years. Every Fall he went at hills around Alma-Ata and putted out a fire. I still remember the smell of burning from his clothes.

    Cheers,
    Vasiliy

  18. Well, Dean, I am truly running out of superlatives for your incredible painting. I hop your situation improves; the smoke from the fires has created a constant upper atmospheric haze the past 3 days even here in the Northeast!
