Imperium Sine Fine 7

Here is the final base for the Menapii Seniores. These figures have been enjoyable to paint and the use of a historical unit to base them on has help in the painting. When time allows there will be some pictures of all four stands together to show the planned effect of the bases.

The figures are from the Foundry range of Late Romans and sadly are the last in the lead mountain for this army. Like many gamers and painters some projects are just never finished and the Late Romans would be in point here. Still to come are Cataphracts, mounted archers - both Roman and Hunnic, more infantry including heavy foot, light foot, archers, skirmishers and casualty markers. All that plus more foederatii than is good for the eyes. Nearly all of the above list has come from the boys at Gripping Beast over the years either directly or indirectly through that online auction thingy.

The shields are have been finished with Little Big Men transfers.

The above picture shows how the figures have been based for light infantry in open order. This reflects the first base creating a denser centre with figures out to the sides when both bases are placed side by side.

Next up will be some pictures of the current work on the painting table plus something just a little bit different.

Cheers for now

Thanks gents for all the positive comments, they are greatly appreciated.

The shields are transfers from Little Big Men as sadly I can't paint that good. I touched the edges up and washed with devlan mud to age the lower sections but not too heavily.
