    So, after my well meaning daughter knocked this figure to the ground while re-arranging the furniture (she's 23 just so we understand we're not dealing with an innocent child here) I stripped, repaired and re-painted this Pegaso offering in 75mm. I tried my hand at some tattoo painting and tried to get a reasonably historic shield design based on some artifacts from the late iron age in Britain. All done in oils over an acrylic undercoat. Now to bolt it securely in the display case. Cheers everyone.

    Top marks for bringing this back from the dead, having to paint the checked trousers again would have put me off, hopefully you have forgiven the culprit and allowed her back into the house lol.

    Thanks everyone. If you're wondering my daughter has taken full credit for this figure and did indeed say "your welcome" when I showed her this finished version. I have put locks on the display cabinets in case she gets any more ideas.

    Thanks Bob, I think the price was the big reason why I don't just bin it when it broke. And thanks to everyone else for your kind comments.

    Lovely work on this, I have it in the grey army and keep looking for a companion figure to no avail....can guarantee he won't have check trousers. Congratulations on a fine job.

    Thanks Andrew and Kieth. Pegaso has a couple of Celtic/Gaulic warrior figures from the same period in 75mm that i think might work quite nicely paired with this one. In fact I know they have another Celtic warrior or chieftain that is also mounted in this scale as well. Worth checking out I think.
