Frankish Casualties - 8th Painting Challenge Entry

Due to lack of enthusiasm I didn't paint as much as I should for the challenge. I hope this gets better now as I attended to TACTICA in Hamburg this weekend and came home with literally thousands of new ideas.
Meanwhile I can show you my newest submission to Curt's "Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge". This time the fortnight thematic bonus round was all about casualties.The poll is still open so make sure you pop over and nominate your most favourite amongst some really stunning entries. Meanwhile here's my entry for you to enjoy:



Not much to say about my submission this time. I had these "Celtic Casualties" from Warlord Games in my lead pile for several years now without even knowing what to use for. As Curt announced the themes for the bonus round I had a dig in the mountain of unloved goodness and came up with these chaps. 



Initially I had planned to do only one of those rather... well, let's face it... crappy sculpts. But with my frankish Army for Dux Brittaniarum the need arose to have some appropriate counters for "Shock".



Despite you certainly see they're sporting the wrong fashion when looking up close I decided these will do. 

So thanks for viewing and hope you enjoyed!

  3. Excellent painting and basing, as usual. Question: turn the dice around or are they fixed in place?

    1. That should have read: "Can you turn the dice..."

    2. Thank you all for the kind words!
      @wiatrog: Yes, you can turn the dice around.

  4. Great stuff. Oddly, I painted the same models, also on casualty stands with dice holders. Sadly, and stupidly, I got my weekends mixed up and didn't get them done in time. Yours are very nice. I love the patterning on the shirts. Very nicely done.
