Cleaning Celts Carefully

There is something iconic about ancient brits v romans...
perhaps it is a throw back to those splendid Airfix 20mm chaps ( not to mention the Roman Fort) of my youth. Anyway when in the shed tonight ( and after  a lot of planning on trains  and in the garden) I dug out my celts,washed them in boiling water, disassembled the chariots,disposed of the grim glue of years and sorted them out.
I have had these utterly splendid "Old School" Admin figures ( made by Garrison miniatures)for many years now.I am very partial to their charm,style and simplicity. Time upon time I have begun them,botched them and bagged them up again. With the weekend soon I hope to start on them and finish this time.


  1. I look forward to seeing them in full battle array, sir.
