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.
I had a couple of days off painting Numidians. While waiting for another load of them to arrive at the door, I had a look at my pile of Companion Miniatures Romans. I knew I had a few of these guys left wearing cloaks and brandishing swords, so I made a start on them.
It turned out that I had 24 of them left over from my Alaudae project, so I based them up as loose formation types to go into woods and be wiped out by their angry brethren.
The idea is that they represent Gallic auxiliaries working for Caesar and/or other unsavoury types; hence the Roman gear.
The cloaks, however, are patterned to make them look different from any Roman legionaries that might be lurking nearby. I left the shields plain for the same reason.
