It's the problem with Celts: you cannot just paint them, you have to cover their clothes with tartan patterns, and since they were sort of individualist, you cannot paint the same pattern twice !!
So, what does our mini look like ?
Nothing extremely original here, but the combination of green and red (complementary colours) is always nice to see. And NO, I didn't even try to add another tartan pattern on the trousers :)
Maybe you ask yourself: what sort of thing the carnyx might be ?
The carnyx is a celtic wind instrument from the iron age. It was a sort of trumpet made of bronze, and was used on the battlefield to frighten the enemies before the clash (according to Polybius).
According to the Gundestrup cauldron (a richly decorated silver vessel dating from the Celtic era, and found at Gundestrup in Denmark), it looked like that:
And according to modern reenactors (from the french blog Les Lemovices en fête):
I never heard someone playing the carnyx, did you ? Must be a little monotonous, don't you think ?
Hope you like this little musician :)
