25mm Celts

The Celts of continental Europe being migratory peoples, came into (often violent) contact with all the others inhabitants of the southern Mediterranean. They clashed with the peoples of Spain, the Etruscans and later the Romans of Italy. In the 3rd century BC. they raided Thrace, Greece and Asia Minor. Eventually carving out their own state of Galatia. The Carthaginians, various states of Asia Minor and Syracuse all used Celts as mercenaries. it was not until Julius Caesar in the mid 1st century BC. that the power and independence of the Celts was broken and Gaul became a roman province. There was very little difference between continental Gauls and the Celtic inhabitants of the British Isles. This range of figures is suitable for representing Celtic armies from approx400BC. to approx 30BC. the heavier chariot (similar to Etruscan), and the naked warriors are more suited to the earlier period.
