I'm taking a long and very CLOSE look at the way you painted those tartans. My 15mm celts are waiting :)
The closest I ever got to Napoleonics was Avalon Hill's "Wooden Ships & Iron Men". But since the DBX-rulesystem is so cool, I might give DBN a try somtime...
Anyway I dig your pix

Now that's what I call a blog! Incredible painting you do! I trust your fiddle playing is as accomplished as your miniatures painting. Mine sucks, but living in Nashville you have to try. I'll try and post some pix of my celts next. I just finished a contingent for a 25mm Carthaginian army I'm working on. Sooner or later I'll get all my DBA armies photographed. By the way, Where'd you get the awesome background for your photos?

The background I painted on a wooden board. It's after a photograph of a steep swiss valley (very bad - going...). The green of the slopes in the foreground is mixed with more and more light-blue and grey as the mountainsides get more distant. Other backgrounds consist of self-made styro-rockcliffs, wood-with-mysterious-dolmen and a waterway.
As you know,keeping up fiddling is d*mn hard work. My painting affects my playing: the more I paint the worse I fiddle :o
Looking forward to your celts!

David, blog looks good. What width are you using for your 25mm figures?

I decided to go with the double rank infantry option obviously, but found that getting cavalry figures to fit in appropriate numbers on the recommended 25mm sizes was difficult. Thus I decided to just double the size of 15mm bases. Infantry are 4,6, or 8 figures on 80mm x 40mm litko bases. Cavalry and artillery are on 80mm x 60mm bases. Artillery bases are not a strict doubling of 15mm size, but I found that the artillery models fit nicely on the cavalry sized base, and since depth for artillery has always been skewed to accomodate the models, I went for the less deep base. Another added benefit is that I only have to use two base sizes for all the elements.
