More painting practice (not painted yet, ironically.), I wanted to do a bad-ass Celtic warrior, so I scribbled some poses and picked one, and I thought she looked cool but she was just kind of standing there. So I posed her out better and gave her some more historically accurate gear. Going for early 0 - 300 AD look. After Romans showed up, before the middle ages. Not a lot of records survive from the era, and reference on Pinterest is beautiful but improbable. Broke out my reference books and found that simple tunics / belts / sandals were the way to go. Threw on a big shield and some light leather armour and she's ready for actual paint. Maybe get reference for the inside of a shield. And woad. Maybe some torcs.
