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 :)

Numidian Cavalry

Finally managed to get some of the backlog on my desk finished.  I've been working on it in fits and starts for most of this year and really don't have too much to show for the time.  But in any case I will share the stuff finished over the next few posts.

First up are three bases of Numidian Cavalry for the growing Punic Wars collection.  This is one bag of plastic Victrix minis.  I already have seven bases of metals and in look I cannot tell them apart.  Obviously the weight is a give away.  I have one more bag to go of these and that will be enough cavalry to make any army feel like a pin cushion.
