EIRs Finally Finished!

Good evening,

Finally, after far too long, all of my Early Imperial Romans are painted!

These two were the last...








...well, for the time being! I do plan to swap out the bolt shooters on Mark Ottley's scratch built carroballistas for HaT's ones...

Note, the generals are both conversions - Esci Roman torsos atop (1) HaT Imperial Roman cav legs, and (2) Napoleonic cavalry legs (which are just a little too bow legged!).

Also note, the generals are sitting atop Newline Celt horses (their Roman cav I thought was way too skinny - I've still used them though, I just can't remember for what...oh, hang on, haven't I put them aside for my Sparaticus HOTT army?), with their flanking compatriots being, respectively left to right, Praetorian cav and Auxilia cav, but with Praetorian shields.

On further reflection, I should have used Praetorians for both and swapped over the standard from the Auxilia cav. Ah well.

While I was pottering away with these, I also pottered along with a couple more Gallic Warband elements. Airfix, Esci, Italeri and Revell all mixed up.


To celebrate, I plan to have a follow up WMA game from two years ago, featuring the aforementioned EIRs and my Raetian Goblins.


But this time everything's painted! Wha Hoo!
