I starting to work my way through the remainders of projects to finish off figures I has set aside. First up this year are some 28mm Roman auxiliaries to supplement my Republican Romans.
These fellows represent slightly less well equipped troops--perhaps regional troops or frontier guards. The shields are hand-painted. Not great but I have done far worse! Thanks to Tim in Saskatoon and Joe in Calgary for the inspiration.
These are some extra figures from the Wargames Factory Caesar's Legions box. I mixed-and-matched heads from several other Wargames Factory boxes and also borrowed shields to create a less uniform look. What I really need to complete this army are some generic light troops (slingers, bowmen) from the Wargames Factory Numidian box but that will need to wait until I have cleared off some more older projects.
I also did up a single command base. Most of my Romans commanders are mounted as separate units on square bases for HoTT (where they can be used as a mounted hero or a lurker). I decided to just do these fellows as a straight-up command unit on a round base.
The commander is (I think) an Artizan Designs figure that I got to review back in 2008. The standard bearer and musician are Wargames Factory figures.
Up next: I'll be running a game of Star Trek Fleet Captains at the club tonight for four players. On the painting table, I have a bunch of Celts with the flesh and metal done as well as a bunch of Imperial Romans primered.
