So the painting has begun and I start with the Roman light foot, Velites.
My Roman forces will consist of 4 legions, 2 Roman and 2 allied. Each legion will consist of 2 small units of Triarii (FOG 2 bases each), 3 units of Hastati (FOG 4 bases each), 3 units of Principes (FOG 4 bases each), 1 unit of Velites (FOG 6 bases) and 1 unit of Cavalry(FOG 4 bases).. That gives each legion 164 foot and 12 mounted.
|Velites base sprayed and ready for the brush.|
|Roman Velites, 'Red Shield Legion'|
|Roman Velites, 'White Shield Legion'|
|Allied Velites, 1st legion|
|Allied Velites, 2nd legion|
Out of interest the figures were base sprayed, as above, then block painted, given a coat of Army Painter 'Dark Tone', then based, flocked and given a coat of matt varnish spray. Simples!!
Next up the Hastati, all 192 of them....
