Painting Gallic & Celtic Warbands

Painting Gallic & Celtic Warbands

Here is my guide for painting Gauls, Gallic & Celtic Warbands during Caesar's Gallic War uniforms using Vallejo acrylic colors. I have also done a painting guide for Caesarian Roman Legions and Germanic Warbands.

Painting irregular armies such as the Gallic & Celtic Warband, in an assortment of clothing colours looks best. To do this job quickly I sort out the figures into groups prior to painting. And then paint the groups in order see below.

Group 1 gets Vallejo 894 Russian Green, Tops
Group 2 gets Vallejo 957 Flat Red, Tops
Group 3 gets Vallejo 925 Blue, Tops
Group 4 gets Vallejo 844 Deep Sky Blue, Tops
Group 5 gets Vallejo 921 English Uniform, Tops

Next, choose another 5 colours and do exactly the for trousers or just mix the order up.

Group 1 gets Vallejo 921 English Uniform, Trousers
Group 2 gets Vallejo 844 Deep Sky Blue, Trousers
Group 3 gets Vallejo 925 Blue, Trousers
Group 4 gets Vallejo 957 Flat Red, Trousers
Group 5 gets Vallejo 894 Russian Green, Trousers
