    Bought some years ago the last kit from that figure but I forgot who had made him. Perhaps someone here know it. It is a special one because he was sculpted only using archaeological results. It is a celt living between 500 and 600 years BC in the so called Hallstadt-Period D

    At the moment he is to "clean" and so some thing left to do

    That´s the difference between Fantasy and Historically correct. If interested have a fist look her https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hallstatt_culture There you can find the helmet and other things from the figure

    Like,the research..you term it fanstasy, I say it’s we have preconceived ideas of “Celt”. Which ignores and puts down the richness and variety of Celtic culture. By digging for accuracy you celebrate the roots of European culture which have mainly been overshadowed by classical Roman and Greek ...good job..

    Hi Ulrich,

    I think that it's an old figure from Shane Terry. I vaguely remember seeing it on the MedRom Forum some years ago - but can't find the thread right now. Maybe if you ask the good people there? They are most helpful.

    Karl, you are right. As I see the name I remember who it was. And I got it over the MedRom Forum. Thanks

    And thanks all for your comments

    Wow! I hardly ever come to this site anymore, what a great surprise to see one of my pieces. This one was a very limited production, I think I only sold about a dozen. It was a great project that I could not have done without the research provided by the Trauner brothers (I hope I got their last name right, it has probably been close to 15 years since I sculpted that piece). Looks good, Ulrich.

    Shane. You remember correct. It must be Hans and Erik Trauner. I have photos from your painted figure and have always a look at them when I try to paint the figure. It is a great and (because historically correct) unusual version of a celt.

    Thank you, Ulrich
    It was always my main intent to create the most authentic Hallstatt Celt possible. Looking at it today there are a few things I'd change, but overall I am still happy with the final product.

    Here's thread Karl - http://forums.delphiforums.com/medrenfig/messages/?msg=1837.1
    Wonderful to get this nice surprise from Ulrich's post Shane.
    I took these photos a few years back of my version, done soon after you sent me a copy of this fellow. Neat to see this specialist project revived.
    Compliments of season to everyone here.

    I have made a mistake. That are the photos that I have and I always thought that was the painting from Shane

    Historical accuracy being one of the things I try to achieve most in my work I cannot but totally love this one.Excellent subject and painting.

    Great job (y)
  15. Shane Active Member

    That was some great work on your part, Mike
  16. Ulrich PlanetFigure Supporter

    Nearly ready I think. Some corrections because I found some little mistake on the photo and then something new to paint :)
