20mm DBA Picts

DBA II/68b Pictish 500AD - 846AD

Originally intended to be 1/72 plastic, ended up with only the mounted elements in that medium.
Disappointment in the quality of available plastic efforts led to the foot being 1/72 metals from Newline Designs, as a result a good bit of the project will now be metal. The Newlines are nice figures with good detail, little preparation and easy to paint.  None of the figures are actually Picts of course, all are Goths but I think more representative of people of the period of interest than Eumenius’ ‘Picti’ of the 3rd century.  From what I’ve seen on the symbol stones they look the part.
