This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
The second Roman infantry unit of my planned WAB army has been painted - it's a "regular" legionnaire unit with 24 figures. I've used Little Big Man Studio transfers for the shields also.
Next is a close up - sorry the standard kind of gets in the way. These miniatures were painted the same way as the previous unit - white undercoat, block painted medium flesh, red, chainmail and leather. Once dry the unit was washed with GW Sepia toned washed.
Here's a top down picture. I've got enough plastic figures to make up 5 Legionnaire formations of 20 - 24 figures each plus one auxiliary infantry unit of 24. I've been very happy with the Warlord plastics with one very minor exception - the plastic standards are very delicate and I've broken both. They will be replaced with standards that are scratch built with brass rod and bits once I learn a little more about how Roman standards are configured.
The next unit on the block is some auxiliary calvary - I've got 12 Warlord metal auxiliary cavalry figures assembled and primed. Well almost 12 - it seems the command blister was missing the upper torso of the trumpeter, which I'm sure will be quickly set right by Warlord and their massive supply chain!
