A friend of mine recently had a birthday, and so I touched up an old mini I'd almost never used for a present: 03700, Tyrea Bronzelocks, a masterful and gorgeous sculpt by Ken White.
You will notice some of the woad/tattoos are crappier than others as I've learned a bit more about brush control and properly thinning paints over the years.
Both the mini and my friend are NSFW.
Here are some borderline SFW angles:
And here are the other angles. CROM cares not for your decency standards, and neither does she.

A delight to paint.
Eldritch altar is Nolzur's; heap of plunder is Mantic Terraincrate.
A couple of months ago I ordered a bunch of "Fir Bolg" Skeletons from Brigade Models, originally produced and still sold for the "Celtos" skirmish miniatures wargame. Roughly two weeks later, which translates to two months ago now, they arrived and I reviewed them. As I've said in the past, I've got a real soft spot for one-piece metal skeletons. There are some other lovely models out there, but many of them are very fragile - and I prefer more sturdy models for wargaming, especially with some of my Ham-Handed friends.
Now, I've finished painting the first unit of them - or the first 12 out of the 59 models I purchased, at least.
The colour scheme is pretty simple and in keeping with the rest of the army - Red and Black, Iron and Brass, Rust and Verdigris, Cadmium-Red wood - and Bone. The tabards and cloth have simply been quartered with the cloth colours to keep it simple. One each of the three sculpts for your perusal. I purchased four of each in order to set up 12 on a 100mm x 80mm base which will represent a Regiment in Kings of War.
The group shot showing all of the 12 I bought. Since we're just talking about duplicate models, I thought it more interesting to skip showcasing each individual duplicated sculpt. With a recent game of KoW against Marouda's Undead showing how effective Horde-sized units are, I'm tempted to buy another set of these guys for her - and some of the other Regiment-sized groups as well!
Based like this, the models work very nicely as a KoW regiment - Tournament-approved as well as I've checked with a key member of the Rules Committee. Beyond that they're very easily popped off the regiment base for use in Role-playing or any other tabletop or board game. Maybe even Celtos! More poses would be ideal, but these will still work nicely enough on the table. Overall, I think these are great models - very much fit for purpose, and I'm very happy with them.
