<----


The ancient Britons had chariots in which they would ride amongst the enemy, hurling their spears into the ranks. It is said these chariots spread terror and confusion amongst the enemy. Indeed during the first Roman expedition of 54 BC. the chariots that were most effective against the Legionaries.


The most common was in the use of the chariots to charge into the enemy's ranks, swords blazing out death. Once they had done their work, the soldiers would then join the battle at points where their leaders thought they would be most effective. It is important to mention here, that contrary to popular belief, the British chariots did not have swords jutting out from the wheels ready to take the legs off whoever was in range. This is one of those myths that has been around for so long, it has been taken as fact.

I like it! Very good idea, especialy the legs of the sitting British warrior! :) I made a roman army, now I got inspiration to make Celtic!

I like how the horses are attached. The chariot is historically realistic, and the warrior is pretty good. My only critism is that the Romans fought the Woads, who painted themselves blue, not red. It's still great, though. By the way, the myth about the swords was probably created by Persian chariots, which had them.

Neat! I like the addition of the second man. Have you considered making a vignette of the chariot in action? Or have you considered a third version featuring Boudica the famous warrior Queen?
