Lovely work :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
Can I ask what colours you used on the wicker work?
I used GW’s Steel Legion Drab as a basecoat, washed with Agrax Earthshade, then highlighted with Steel Legion, and mixtures of Steel Legion + Karak Stone. I applied Army Painter’s Soft Tone wash thinned with a little water, around the edges.

I finally got around to adding a tattoo to my Celtic giant, Cribwr Gawr.




This model is Shield Maiden Astrid, made by Brother Vinni Miniatures.  She, along with the 3 tattooed Curaidh models that I previously painted for my Dark Age Irish warband, will form a unit of 4 Beserkers for my Age of Magic Celtic Horde warband.

Great additions to your collection!
Astrid is a must-see  :-*
You have a unique painting style!
Cheers!

My order from Brother Vinni's arrive late last week.  Included in my order is fun magic carpet mini that may replace the Hell Dorado mini as my Desert Nomad's Sorcerer




I haven't decided if my Desert Nomad Sorcerer will be 'mounted' or 'on-foot', but thanks to some very small magnets, the magic carpet model can be used as both.  Below is the model painted, attached to his 'on-foot' base via a magnet.



Below is the (yet unpainted) magic carpet itself.  The carpet is cast a bit too thin, so as expected, parts broke off or were damaged when I removed it from the sprue and trimmed it.  I attached the carpet to the 'flight' stand using a magnet attached to the bottom of the carpet.  The magnet that you can see in the photo holds the rider's left foot to the carpet.  The other little metal thing sticking out of the surface of the carpet is a very small length of metal rod that inserts into a hole on the bottom of the rider's right foot.




One would expect that a model on a flying carpet would have the Flight rule, but unfortunately, this option isn't available to the Lords of the Wild Sorcerers, so it will have to serve as a low level flying carpet -more of a 'hover carpet' than an actual flying carpet. Perhaps the Sorcerer suffers from Acrophobia, and can fly higher but doesn't do so out of a paralyzing fear of heights? Sorcerers are a very strange breed, so anything is possible. :D

Very nice. I'm loving that desert Sorcerer.

And thanks for the reminder: I've got some Hell Dorado Saracens stashed away somewhere that suddenly need paint.

Ted, a friend of mine who I introduced to SAGA, just bought his first house.  Normal people give bottles of wine as housewarming gifts.  Gamers give toys.  :D

Ted plays Vikings and plans to use them in AoM as a Horde warband.  He told me that he wants to include in his AoM warband a massive wolf, reminiscent of Fenrir, as a Monster.  With this in mind, for a housewarming gift I ordered him the model pictured below from a 3D printer who sells on Etsy (HQMiniatures).  I bought the base separately from Renedra, Ltd.  The model arrived today.  Its printed in resin and it turned out very nice. 

I posed it next to a ruler and a Victrix 28mm Viking to provide a sense of scale.

That is definitely a monster.  Great gift idea!

your paint-jobs never fail to impress.
3d-print wolf is great.

This model comes from the Victrix Chariot kit sprue. 

My only modification was replacing the original spear shaft metal rod, which is both thicker and more durable.

It will make a terrific druid (Sorcerer) for my AoM Celt Horde warband.

Each chariot sprue includes a druid and Boudica model, so when you buy the Victrix Celtic Chariot kit you get 3 druids and 3 Boudicas. 

Ogrob, I'm a fan of your work and I'd love to see what you do with these models.  PM me your address and I will mail you the druid and Boudica models from the kit.
