About Ragip Oy (zwan)
FROM: ISTANBUL, TURKEY / TüRKçE

Born in 1963,married and living in Istanbul with my wife and 2 kids. I started to model with wooden ships in my teens. Then lack of space at home changed my route to aircraft and afv. My last stop is figures. I am painting figures and busts since 2003.

Lovely work, Ragip Strictly speaking I suppose it is Celtic... Per Wikipedia (yes, I know it's accuracy is debatable ) Boudica was a queen of the Iceni people, a Brythonic tribe who inhabited an area of Britain corresponding roughly to the modern-day county of Norfolk between the 1st century BC and 1st century AD. Brython and Brythonic are terms which refer to indigenous, pre-Roman, Celtic speaking inhabitants of most of the island of Great Britain, and their cultures and languages, the Brythonic languages. These ethnic groups are also referred to as the British tribes, the ancient Britons, ethnic Britons, or simply Britons. These terms specifically refer to the culture of speakers of the P-Celtic branch of the Celtic languages as opposed to speakers of Q-Celtic, who are usually referred to as Gaels or Goidelic Celts.

This is a great figure. The cape is fantastic. Blonde hair is hard and you pulled it off well.

Excellent paint job on a beautiful fig, but wouldn't a Celt have had dark hair? BTW, how is Icenii pronounced -- like 'ice', or like 'icarus'?

Short info about Boudicca gathered from several website. Best regards ''Boudicca had long red-gold hair down to her hips. She also had a spear in her hand. She wore a tunic with lots of colours on and a thick cloak. She was very tall and wore the same clothes every day. In AD 60 Boudicca’s husband died. His name was Prasutagus. After her husband had died, she and her two daughters got beaten up by the Romans. She was really annoyed so she gathered a large army and took them to Londinium to battle. They killed 70,000 Romans and started a great fire. The rest of the Romans made the Iceni tribe into slaves, apart from Boudicca who escaped. She was furious, so she killed herself by drinking poison to stop the Romans from getting her. The spelling of the name is uncertain. Although "Boudica" is followed by Salway and Frere, among others, it probably should be "Boudica," which means "victory" in Celtic and would be the equivalent of the modern "Victoria." In any event, "Boadicea" is incorrect. (pronounce Boudica - Boo-di-ka) When the Romans arrived in Britain in 43AD, and got into East Anglia (it wasn't called that then!) they came across a tribe called the Iceni (modern way of pronouncing it is I-kee-ni)
