It’s about time for an update. I’ve had a few minor set-backs (like re-basing a couple of units), not to mention general laziness, but things are progressing nonetheless. I have to say, when it comes to 6mm, this project is making a believer out of me.
Here’s what the Roman legion looks like on bases. This equates to six units of heavy foot in Impetus.
I’ve also finished painting four units of Roman auxilia. To reflect the less regimented nature of the units, I’ve based them in a central clump. In 6mm, I’ve found this is a good way to distinguish drilled heavy units (i.e. FP) from less drilled, lighter infantry (i.e. FL)
After the slingers and the cavalry, I’ll have 14 of 18 units painted, so I’m starting to turn the corner where I’m seeing light.
Thanks for reading,
