Gallo-Briton Morph Complete

With the completion of the last two Wb elements, I finally have all options for either a Gallic army (II/11) or a Briton army (II/53). Here's the mighty army morph arrayed:

So, loads of elements! 6xLCh, 3x4Wb, 8x3Wb, 5x2Ps, 2x3Cv, 2x2LH. Enough for a big-battle double-size army in fact. I'm looking forward to testing out the light-type configuration of Britons in difficult terrain.

Fresh draft of Gallic warriors rush to battle

These handsome, brightly-clad fellows are reinforcements in my long-drawn-out struggle to replace the old Gallics. They are all by HaT; one in three have some armour, if only a helmet, and about half have a sword. Shields vary in shape: the worst that can be said is that the overall (likely) most-popular shape, the cropped-oval, barely features. Everything is hand-painted: so if you blow up the picture you can see the shields are by no means perfect!

I went with a mixture of plaid, stripe and plain for clothing. They are all to be morph-able into ancient Britons so I think the balance is about right.

Gallo-Britons add skirmishers

Plaid, plaid, plaid! No end of plaid! I completed six Ps elements - which should be more than enough since I can't imagine wanting to field the 3x2Ps option for the Britons - and most of them are dressed in at least one plaid garment.

These slingers are most likely to see service with the Britons though could help out Carthaginians in a pinch.
