Andrew sends us this grisly yet wonderfully thematic vignette for his Ancient British army.
This is just a small entry for today I have been creating a small vignette for our Hail Caesar games, I normally default to having the hapless Ancient Brits against the might of Kevin's Romans. So I thought it would be nice to add some flavour to the table in the form of some wildly celebrating Druids holding a ritual sacrifice of a Roman at the altar.
These are all 20mm plastics, the Druids are from Hat and the Roman from Italeri I believe.
The stone altar was carved out of another piece of dense styrene and dry brushed up to be a touch more realistic. The hapless Roman was beheaded and mounted onto the alter then a leg and arm were removed and repositioned to look correct and his head mounted on a nice little stake.
These have all been painted to my tabletop standard, which is fine enough from a couple of feet away.
Awesome work Andrew! Those Britons do have a reputation of giving a pretty mean haircut. I particularly like the altar and the grisly 'lamp-post'. Nothing says Winter Solstice like a ritual sacrifice to the gods of the forest.
This vignette will give Andrew 16 points. Well done!
