I have been gaming since school, moving from historical figures gaming through role playing and back again. I decided to Blog after being persuaded by some friends that it's time I joined the digital age properly. The plan is to showcase various goings-on in my gaming life and keep it updated as much as I possibly can, barring work and real life.
Two units of twelve Roman cavalry, with a command stand in the middle. Figs are by Companion Miniatures.
As with the Spanish cavalry I painted from the same manufacturer, these are quite dynamic, so I put them on slightly deeper bases than usual.
The unit with the white shield designs has embossed shields that originally came with the foot command sets. I kept these and used them for some of the cavalry and the command base.
The ones with yellow are some LBMS transfers for Aventine Velites, on a mixture of shields with bosses and some without. It took me six weeks to paint these, much longer than I would normally take. Work has been really heavy since the winter break, so I don't usually have any energy left for painting on midweek evenings. I'm glad to get them finished!
