Good evening everyone,

I am looking for 25 / 30mm figures exactly like that of the drawing No. 3 of the" F "illustration page of the M.A.A No. 158 Gallic and British Celts.

Hoping that it was done …

Or, quite simply, a factory offering a range of 25 / 30mm figurines representing the different types of Caledonian warriors Including those who fought from chariots in 80 AD.

You never know, maybe such a range exists ..?

I want specific figurines, because I do not want to use figurines of ancient British, Gallic or Pictish.

Thanks for your help

The Caledonnians are not generic British Celts.

The ancient British are very different from the Caledonnians, already what is striking at first glance, it's the shield, the picts used this kind of shield – but larger – never the Gallic or the old British.

For that it is necessary figurines of shirtless warriors and whose hair would not be coated with a thick layer of lime, which discolored them but especially made them stiff and bristly, and pushed back from the front to come off as the mane of an animal, gave the warrior a characteristic look and because this type of hairstyle – very visible on the figurines – is only valid for certain Gauls at certain times.

'Peter Salway considers the Caledonians to have consisted of indigenous Pictish tribes speaking a language closely related to Brittonic or a branch of it augmented by fugitive Brythonic resistance fighters fleeing from Britannia'….Use Picts

A big question: The Picts were Celts?

Yet, they are not alike?
