I finally focused on and finished a Corvus Belli Ancient British DBA army (II/53) for my buddy Chris (now his Romans have someone to fight!). The army comprises 4 stands of chariots, including an optional chariot general. These were a bitch to assemble, with lots of awkward flash in the horse's legs and fiddly gluing of figures. But the result is pretty good.
I did a Boudiccia general figure. The plaid turned out pretty dodgy--too much rippling in the cape to get nice lines.
The dip is doing a very nice job of the horse flesh.
There are 2 light horse units.
There are nine (!) warband units, including a warband general. Here is the general.
These were pretty nice figures but a fair bit of flash to carve off the bottom of the bases. But the detail is very nice.
And then the paradox of individual shields: lots of possible variety but lots of gluing.
You get a better sense of detail looking from the side.
There are also four psiloi bases. Corvus Belli has modeled teenagers as the psiloi. Not sure how I feel about that. Yes, it is likely accurate. Yet do we really need to accurately model child soldiers?
Then there are these two bases of regular slingers.
Anyhow, overall a nice army with a fair bit of punch against the legion (at least on the first contact!), with some speed and rough-going options. And more complex to play than the Marian Legion Chris already has!
Up next: A 15mm Marian legion is on the paint table right now which will be up for sale shortly. Thereafter, I don't know. I may try a few of the 28mm plastics I have picked up. Or maybe another 15mm army for sale. We'll see!
