The box title is actually "Gallic Warband" and the figures can easily be used for any of the numerous Celtic peoples, including the Ancient Brits.
My intention was to use these as prisoners of war, fighting with their native weapons either against gladiators or even my legionaries. There are quite a few records of such 're-enactments' of famous battles played out in the arena, with gladiators, prisoners, criminals etc being used for both sides.

As can be seen there are two spear armed and two sword armed figures, with one of the latter being the (almost) obigatory naked charging fanatic; the other has wings attached to his helmet, maybe to depict some form of leader-figure.
|Two of the figures, front and back|
They are still on their sprues and have uncut flash etc. on them and note that the spear-man's spear is attached to his helmet.
|The other two figures on the sprue, again showing front and back|
The other half of the two sprues has the naked fanatic swordsman and the second spearman, who also has his spear attached to his head.
|Fronts of the eight "conversions"|
The photographs show the fronts and backs of the eight figures I've decided I may use in my arena combats.
I have done a few bits and bobs in the way of minor conversions on these figures, some of which will be easily spotted.

One version of the "fanatic" has had pants added and both have had their feet firmly grounded.
Two helmets have had minor alterations to them (wings cut from one, plumage from the other). All the figures have had their arms bent into different poses and a few have also had their shields or shield arm pose altered.
That's it for this week, I hope you've found something here of interest.
