I've finished purchasing all the figures I need for my Roman skirmish army! I have two cohorts of Legionaries, one cohort of veteran skirmishers, and an allsortment of command figures including a general! They are all metal figures and have cost me around £80 for all of them. I can't wait to get home next week and begin painting them! I'll take a photo of it all before I start and give you gradual updates on how it goes.

I can't wait to see what they look like when finished! Then I can make a start on my Celtic army. I've already started on planning what I'm going to buy and where from...

Looking good; looks like you are using Army Painter I've not seen it used on these before, gives a good result.

A small observation; you've painted one of the wooden bits on the pilum as metal; the bit the 2 pins fit into, should be wood.

The Copplestone Caesarians are lovely. I'm painting some of them at the moment, myself.

Thanks! Yes I am using the army painter, I'd strongly recommend it to anyone who doesn't have the skill/ patience to do the shading properly! It gives a great effect. Ah yes. I thought it looked a little weird! Although I don't think I will repaint it, it's put me through hell! The shields are White too so the colour scheme is very Carthaginian which is also historically innaccurate but they could be a Spanish legion?
