Celtic O'Callaghan Cattle-raider, a semi-historical custom

Postby doodstormer » Sun Jul 13, 2008 1:18 am

Image
My ancestors were the O'Callaghan family of Cork county in Ireland. I would give you a link to a page with info, but I couldn't find any decent ones.

Image
They were cattle raiders, that is, people who rode in, took your stuff, and rode out real fast.

Image
Here he is, about to axe some poor grunt.

Image
Looting the bodies. After all, what medieval raider could resist 2 fully armored soldiers... with swords! (In case you didn't know, swords were an expensive luxury)

Image
Here's a better shot of his horse and my customized broadsword. The sticker around the blade actually helps keep the chrome from chipping off. Pretty handy.

Image
The Celts also had an instrument called a bodrane (pronounced bow-rane), which was a kind of drum.

Image
And here's his spoils of war.


Now I know this guy isn't entirely historically accurate, but you'll surely live.

Well hold on now. A hot redhead is nice, but you should never let that distract you from the advantages of TWO hot redheads.

As soon as I saw "Hot Redhead" I knew what IV's first reply would be. Anyways, good work with the decals, as always.

What about TWO AND A HALF hot redheads??
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

I'm pretty sure we already came to an agreement on which side would be better in that topic with the mermaid thing.

Lol, I remember that. The top half provides food AND companionship, and it's a human female and not a fish.

Everyone knows blondes have more fun. But brunettes are good too. So is black hair in fact. You know what? Two babes of any hair colour (other than grey) will do me fine...
