Scots / Irish warband for SAGA

I've had most of these figures painted for the last couple of years but never got around to basing them. This probably coincided with my loss of interest in WAB. After looking through my lead pile I reckon I can put together a 4 point SAGA warband. So far all I needed to paint up were the 2 armoured members of the Hearthguard. One of these is a GB plastic viking figure, but he will do for now. The warlord is the free GB Pictish chieftain I got when I order the Age of Arthur supplement. The Irish warrior has also made it into the warband.

The figures are a mix of Gripping Beast, Foundry and Old Glory from their Celtic and Pictish ranges in the main. The force currently stands at 2 points and I'll try and paint up the other 2 points of warriors. I've also managed to put together 4 mounted warriors which I can also add into the mix for a bit of variety. My only issue is my painting style has changed quite considerably since I painted the original figures and it may be difficult to ensure the new paint jobs match up.
