Pictish Raiders 2

The Picts are still pouring down from the North: I have finished the second unit for my Pictish Raiders force. You can read more about the project in the first post. These are a small group of skirmishers armed with javelins.

From left to right: Old Glory, BTD, Westwind, BTD

This is a nice mix of miniatures: Black Tree Design, Old Glory and West Wind. The fellow of the right is a very simple conversion. He was originally armed with a sling, but I cut the sling away from his right hand along with the peg for the shield on his left hand. I then drilled out both hands, bent the right arm back a bit, to make the pose better, and finally glued the javelins in place. Nice and simple.
 
Here are some more pictures:

  1. Wonderful work, these fellows look like they just snuck up out of the bogs. I especially love the way you've done the skin in triads. Really sharp! The basing is excellent as well.
