Celts and Monsters

So while it has been...fifteen days...since the last post I will have you know I have NOT been idle in the least. As a matter of fact as of yesterday I have cleared my paint board! Huzzah! A rare feat for me as commonly more and more projects slide onto the board and others just don't quite get finished. Many projects got completed as a matter of fact; some plague marines, some historical, some reaper miniatures, and various other stuff. I'm not going to post them all at once ya know, but i'll give you some of them!

First up I think it's important these get the limelight...
BAM!  Chariots...
...slightly three-quarters view...
...and in the back of the most important chariot Boudicca herself!
These are Wargames Factory Celt chariots and they are nice enough for such a good price for three. These have been sitting in the "soon to be done" box half primed for a long maybe a year. I finally decided it was time to get on my historical project and these were on deck so I got them finished.

My Boudicca isn't the best figure but it was the one that came with the chariot so I wanted to make use of it rather than buy another one. I will probably get another later, its not so much the garb (which is wildly inaccurate) but instead it is just not that well molded the detail is kinda muggy.

With those done i'll look to either dig into the Romans to completion or the Celts, I'm unsure at this point.

With the Celt chariots done lets look at something less authentic shall we?
"Rawwrr! Don't look at the gap in my arm!"
"..." I have no idea what an Owlbear would say, sorry.
As I have said before I put a reaper mini on the painting board any time I'm working on a project and paint on it along with the project. This has resulted in a surprising number of them becoming finished actually. The two rather large monsters above were pretty easy paints since they weren't complex. This adds a nice set of monsters to my collection for delves or war gaming. I plan on keeping up with this practice as they bones aren't terribly hard to paint and my pool of painted miniatures needs some that aren't GW models :)

I have more to share and will post it soon, but now back to the bench.
