And some Romans

These are the first Romans for my Punic armies and my first ones ever.  They are the lovely Aventine Miniatures figures - a real joy to paint and so well animated.  Shield designs are from the equally good LBMS.

The photos are shocking - taken with the phone and flash in a dark room.  Shades are much harsher than in reality and yet some are not visible (the red). As I do more I will try and take better photos - but at the moment just blogging something is an improvement for me on the past 18 months :)

    1. Thanks Phil. The LBMS transfers do all the hard work on the shields. Some complain bitterly about them but I think they are wonderful and have very little trouble with them.
