Gallic Foot

Nothing takes more work than Gauls. I would say they take me two to three times as long as any other figure. I end up using almost all of my paints, and all the color changes are rough on my smallest brushes.

But man, nothing else looks quite as spectacular once finished.

These are three of the seven Gallic foot units for Glenn's big commission. Each unit has ten figures.

Edit: I should have written this to begin with, but all these figures are Renegade (except the skinny spearman in the light blue shirt--he's Relic), the shield transfers are from Little Big Men Studios, the spears are from North Star, and the bases are Litko.


  1. These are spectacular! Scratch shields, stripes, checks, skin does Gauls as well as you Scott!

  2. Fantastic Scott! Love all the colour. They look amazing.

  3. These are awe-inspiring.

    Such beautiful work. The details keep me looking at these again and again.

  4. Wow, some of those guys look like they're wielding cricket bats instead of swords!


    But, your superb painting skill has made them a sight to behold!

    Have a Happy New Year!

  5. Correction on the figures:
    The big guys with the big swords are Renegade. Many of the rest (with the smaller swords) are A&A Miniatures. The skinny chap with the blue shirt is Relic.

    And it bears saying again: Wow!

  6. Astounding work on the checks and stripes in the clothing Scott.

    Well done!

  7. Wow these guys are fantastic!!! I will use them as models for my celts I am painting next...if you don't mind ;)



  8. Beautiful work! I really like your approach to the patterning. I think I'm going to be stealing some of your excellent ideas as well. Rest assured though that they will not come anywhere near to this quality!

    Best wishes for 2012,

  9. Go ahead and borrow all you like! That's big reason I have the blog. I learn a lot from what others do, and I hope I can be part of that.

  10. Beautiful work Mr. MacPhee, you've really got a great eye for what to accentuate on a figure to make the whole thing "pop", as you say. Very impressive effect!
