EIR Ax Infantry

Good morning,

Here is the summation of my Term 3 holidays!






(They are on temporary bases until I can get some more MDF bases off Stan)

The grunts are HaT Early Imperial Auxilia, the commander is from HaT's Roman Artillery and the Cornican dude is an Italeri Late Republican Roman figure. All painted with [pretty much] two layers (a dark shade with a lighter highlight) atop a black undercoat.

The primary difference between these Ax and my earlier ones is that these now have brass (actually Dwarf Bronze highlighted with Shining Gold) shield bosses and rims.

That's all of my EIR Ax infantry finished.

Now to finish the rest of the EIR Ax Cv, rework the artillery pieces, finish the rest of the legionaries and complete the Pretorian/General cav elements. Oh, and the Eastern Archers. [Sigh]

Then on to the Sarmatians...and Parthians...and Indians...and Macedonians...and Greeks...and Persians...as well as a smattering of others, like my Early Germans. Of which I have at least base coated the Dragon!

So many dollies, so little time...

  4. Thanks Paul. Now if I could only get them done even half as quick as you get yours onto the table...! :-)

    And back to work for a rest? I love my kids, but...do I really have to go back to school on Monday?
