For the Big Day of the Britannia 600 AD Campaign Chris Harrod picked the Picts. All of the Picts. In other words he wanted all of the options in the Pict Army List. A fine aspiration.
Figures are Essex, QRF: Feudal Castings, Museum Miniatures, and Outpost Miniatures. Painting by Chris.
Realistic Troops of the DBA Army (DBA II/68b)
DBA. II/68b. Pictish. 500AD-846AD
Official:1x3CV or 3Sp (Gen), 2x2LH, 6x3Sp, 3x2Ps; Littoral
Chris has the entire DBA army, with all options, although the army he fielded on the Big Day had more HOTT to it.
Pict DBA Army
1 x 3Cv (Gen) (Riders) – Mounted General
The man himself. This is the guy Chris fielded.
1 x 4Sp (Gen) (Spears) – Foot General
Just in case
Pict Standby General
2 x 2LH (Riders) – Cavalry
Pictish Nobles at their drunken best (check out the guy on the right).
6 x 3Sp (Spears) – Spearmen
Chris decided 3 figures (3Sp) was too few and went for 4 figures per base (4Sp).
3 x 2Ps (Shooters) – Archers or Crossbowmen
Ooops, bases were too big (40x30mm not 40x20mm)
Camp / Stronghold
A stone circle, of course. In this case a Druidess is using the power of the stones to de-ensorcel a colleague (the chicken in the middle).

Fantastical Elements for HOTT
Chris wanted it all and he got it …
Spears: If 6 isn’t enough try 8
Riders: If 2 isn’t enough try 3
Shooters: How about 8 of them
Warband: Naked Fanatics anyone?
Sneakers: Sheep russlers
God: The Moragan
And he fielded her too
