What's next on the painting table

Well, after I'd glued the shields on the first pack of Gallic Legionaries, I looked at the two other packs and the command and sighed. I wanted to have a unit of SOMETHING finished very soon or i'd go mad! So I decided to paint one of my units of Spanish skirmishers (12 in each unit) so atleast I'd have one unit completely finished. They are pictured above along with the Romans (although the 3 command figures are missing from the photo). I do have a problem though. The shields they're supplied with look very similar to the shields on my Romans. Do you think I should paint them red to make them look different? Perhaps blue for a more Auxiliary feel? I intend to use them as both allies and enemies of Rome though.
