Splendid paint jobs on these miniatures Matt...
I remember painting a load of plaid on some Jacobites I am sure it effected my mind....
I started dreaming about Tartan.... o_o o_o :o...

I do hope you are going to have a parade... or whatever the collective term for Gauls is.

All the best.   Aly
YES!... I KNOW I AM A BUTTERFLY.

Thank you Aly,

It certainly “I am in the mood” to paint it consistency. There is no easy way around it.

I will pull them out for the birthday parade I think in March, although working on my Wargames room “the Salon de Guerre” and my table, perhaps for the grand opening later in March.

Cheers
Matt

A update about the Gallic fortress 5 Klm from our Maison, I regularly walk along the Mayenne River below it so with the spring weather I decided to make it a morning and have taken some photos of the site.

The site is 135 hectares in total, although most of the remains are within the 14 hectare inner fortress.



Brown: the whole city site.
Red : inner and outer walls, up to 8m in some locations
Grey: 2011 archeological dig area 9klm long, later the motorway was built here.
White : current roads
Blue: Mayenne and L'Aaron rivers
Black: current property boundaries

A small report on the blog
https://stormandconquest.blogspot.com/2020/02/gaullic-oppidum-moulay.html

Next up more figures, then I will put together a small report on the museum.

Cheers
Matt
