Galatians!

More lockdown painting. Watching Grayson Perry's art club as I write, so may do something weird for the next post. But for this post I continue with my 90bc near east world

Couple of units of slingers Forged in Battle


Unit of soldurii with a couple of dead Romans - Xyston


I have 4 more units of warriors and 4 of cavalry which will give me an army of 14 regiments so a wing of a Pontic army in a massive battle or an entire Galatian army. 
I have a soft spot of Galatians. I have known 3 Turks in my life, 2 amazing women and a really nice guy. The guy was quite conservative and he worked with this crazy Turkish woman. Whenever she used to wind him up he used to call her a Galatian. Which was apt as she had red hair, some really impressive tatoos and was actually Galatian from the middle of Turkey.
Right off to get the modelling clay out
