1/72 Roman slingers

Continuing on with Monday's post on 1/72 Roman light troops, I have finished 16 slingers from the Strelets Roman Velites box. It was quite a job to cut these guys from the sprues and I can see that I was impatient and didn't get all of the mold lines on the shields scrapped off.

There are four poses among the slingers, including one where the slinger has just cast his stone and one end of the sling is loose. I have never seen that pose before and it is a neat one.

Up next: I have 16 1/72 light Romans coming off the production line tomorrow. THen likely a few days to paint up some Roman cavalry.
