Pict Chariot and Cavalry














Here are a Pict chariot and some Pict cavalry that I've just finished painting. The chariot and crew are Foundry and the cavalry are 1st Corps, all with LBM shield transfers. Most of my Picts are Foundry and Gripping Beast. Obviously painting the plaid is slow and time consuming, so the next unit make take some time!

  1. Great stuff Mick,

    they really look the business. Plaid everybody's nightmare, love the back drop also

    I am plodding through some myself for my 5th century Bretons, well worth it if you can do it

    1. Thanks Matt, I reckon the trick is to not do too many at once, otherwise you get a bit cross eyed.

  3. Both chariot and plaid look great! I am in agreement on not tackling too many at once.

  4. Great looking chariot and cav, Mike. Looks like they'd give their Roman friends a "good time." :)

  6. Lovely looking Picts! Mine are black tree design, nice but they're not on their website anymore, frankly I'm not convinced about there being any plaid, well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
    Best Iain

    1. Thanks Iain, the plaid looks good but is very time consuming to paint. A few at a time, mixed in the unit is the way to go.
