Pictish Raiders 3

Another week, another addition to the Pictish Raiders force. This time it's the first unit of "proper" raiders, 6 men strong.

BTD, GB, BTD, WW, BTD, GB

The models are from Black Tree Design, Gripping Beast and West Wind. The BTD models are slimmer than the other two manufacturers' but I think they match OK. Shield transfers are from Little Big Men Studios.

I took a little extra time painting these raiders, doing some patterns on their clothing as well as some extra (smallish) highlights in certain places. Nothing too fancy though, just enough to make them look less flat than with a single highlight.

Some more pictures:



And finally, a warm welcome to the new follower Grigork. I hope you'll like the blog!

    1. Thanks Monty! I think they work great together. With no duplicates it makes the warband look very varied rag-tag.
