Been painting Picts this weekend. Prior to this Jan and I enjoyed a visit to the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh yesterday which was as inspiring as ever.It is simply glorious.We had good weather and the chance to have a good look around. Later,after we had left, torrential rain came and we headed home after lunch out ,with the moving sound of Orthodox chant on the radio courtesy of Radio Three.With the rain pelting down outside I moved my Picts forward on the painting table for my forthcoming Valhalla Dark age skirmish game against Saxons. In a previous post I mentioned buying the rules at Carronade.The above pic is of my Pictish Chieftain/Warlord,his Bard and a spearman. Also managed a couple of civilians- a priest/bishop of the Celtic Church and his acolyte visiting one of the flock-
Always liked Picts,fascinating enigmatic chaps indeed.
