Caratacos's lifeguard

 I have included a new kind of unit in my army although it doesn't exist in the "Ancient Britons" list. In fact, it was a suggestion of Roro who likes the idea of a well equiped and trained warband to protect the warlord. So, I decided to fashion my list using the "general's guard" of the Gallic list to represent Caratacos's do-or-die bodyguards
 The warriors are dressed with chain mail  shirts and are wearing necklaces and torcs to show their importance in the tribe. The leader wear a raven helmet (these birds had movable wings which flapped when the warrior charged)
 The escarpment is made with schist stone. I  have sawed it to fit to the muti-parts socle.


  1. I agree. They look awesome. Glad to see you will have a proper guard for your king !

  2. Great stuff! Love the muted color palette on your figures, and your snow basing is some of the best I've seen. You'll need to write up a basing tutorial ;)

    Glad to see you back to work on this project!
