So after a short break for christmas, when I was forced to visit family and then revise for exams, I'm back to my work bench (dining table) and starting on a new project. The target is to get 1000pts ready to take part in a doubles competition which I will enter with Poisoned Edge, whose ogres teamed up with my Tileans for the last doubles tournament, and who has assured me that he's going to start a log here for his part of the army. We have decided to both use the same army book as this gives us various advantages and since we both already collect them we are going to both be using Orcs and Goblins. However since I painted my greenskins a long time ago I'm going to create a new force that doesn't look like I painted it holding the brush with my teeth. As the title of this log suggests this army is going to have a celtic theme, living in Edinburgh for four years must have affected me psychologically, so I need to create myself some tartan clad loonies.
Here's my test miniature:
The plan is to have a large block of savage orcs like this one, some trolls, a shaman and some other stuff.
I'm keen to get this looking as good as possible so any comments and criticisms are very welcome.
