Gaesatae

 Hi everybody!

A small update today, with a figure representing a Celtic Gaesatae, who were said to be mercenaries fighting naked.




This Celt is a conversion, will you guess which figures I used ? I wanted to represent blue warpaints or tattoos, and a weathered shield, hope you like the result.

And last, I've used my mobile phone for the pictures.

See you soon (I hope) !

  4. Wonderful conversion.
    Body and shield from Hat's 8058 Carthaginian Allies with head and helmet from the Airfix chariot rider?

    1. Hello James, thank you for your comment :)
      Body and shield: correct.
      The head: that's not the right answer, sorry :)

  5. Bonjour de Belgique ;o)

    Je dirais qu'il s'agit du corps d'un Gaulois de marque Hät (alliés carthaginois) et d'une tête de fantassin carthaginoismi-lourd,même marque...

    1. Bonjour, M.Inconnu de Belgique :)
      Pour le corps c'est bon! Pour la tête, c'est bien vu. Je n'y avais pas pensé et ça me donne des idées de futures conversions, merci! Mais non, ce n'est pas la bonne réponse, qui est en fait plus triviale.
      Merci pour cette contribution, au plaisir de vous relire :)

  6. As other players fell, here my own try:
    Body is already clear from Hat cath allies (colleaghes also were right),
    Head should be from Caesar Celt Warriors, (the wounded fallen man, brought back to action By Phil skills) is It right??

    1. Ah Sceavus, you would have won the ring again Bilbo himself !!
      Yes you're right. I was considering the wounded warrior by Caesar, and thought that it was too bad that suh beautiful helmet could bot be seen on any other existing 1/72 figure!
      Congratulations (again and again) :)
