    Just finished this recent arrival on my work bench, Pegaso's Mounted Celt in 75mm (1/24). It was constructed right out of the box, I only added the broken column to the base, which I made from a cake decoration kit. Other than that, I don't really have much to add in the way of commentary, so please if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    Wow ,that's some fast work . Well done . I like the colour choice of the horse . Was there any fit problems ?

    Nicely done, I particularly favor the skin tones and that shield looks great! The rear harness on the horse is also very eye catching. Well done.

    Thanks Mario, there were no significant fit problems. A bit of careful filing and sanding, along with some mild filling took care of a few minor gaps, but nothing serious at all.

    Thanks Steve, I was particularly pleased with the way the shield turned out. I almost lost my mind trying to do the Celtic knot work freehand, and the shield was already attached to the mounted rider! So thanks for the kind words.

    I use acrylic as an undercoat, and oils for shadows and highlights. Mostly oils I would say if I had to choose one.

    Thanks Ray. It's easy to be fast when you spend your Spring break painting. All I had to do was avoid the wife's "to do" list.

    Thanks also Swralph and Aveleira for your kind words.

    Wonderful vignette and excellecnt painting. I like the overall muted tones you apply to this figure and his horse and also the fine freehand patterns you paint.
