Revolting Goths


I've just finished painting my first unit of Gothic deserters, please have a click.

In all honesty I hadn't planned to paint a unit of Goths, but I was stripping apart my old Viking army in order to sell it, and discovered 16 bounty Germans hiding in the rear rank.  I couldn't resist adding a couple more elements and some lovely LBMS shield designs to round them off.  Most of the minis are Gripping Beast, with a few Black Trees amongst them.

They are destined to become enemies for my (alas so far largely projected) Late Roman army.  I like them slightly more from this angle, where it's easier to see the new shield designs.

These are great! Nice shading on the tunics, and cool colour choices.

Hi Simon,
I've got some of the GB figures going spare somewhere if you want them gratis?

Thanks again all!

I really want to paint some more- I might do a unit of skirmishers, in a week or so.
