28mm Warlord Games Ancient Britons

The Warlord Games 28mm Early Imperial Romans will need some opponents and where best to start, your Warlord Games 28mm Ancient Britons. It also tied in nicely with my youngest son's school project. The Ancient Britons are a mixture of (mainly) plastic and metal distinctive metal heads - with spiky limed hair and metal shields. A mixture of plastic glue for some parts and superglue for others is always an interesting combination. From raw plastic/metal they get a Airfix acrylic white undercoat (see below, note I am using light "The Works" 30mm bases that I superglue the figure to, this works as the metal parts can make an unbalanced final figure - the crazy centre of gravity making it tumble):

As soon as the undercoat is dry I gave then a Vallejo Brown/Sepia "dip" or rather "heavy wash" (see below):

So far so good but now I am faced with the daunting task of painting Celtic/Briton multi-coloured stripes and checked patterns. Time to hit the Google engine for some painting guides!

Note: The basing is individual (at the moment) with the thought of being able to "bunch things together" - however depending upon the final rule-set used I may have to rethink that!
