Imperium Sine Fine 8

The last post mentioned that there would be something a little different, well here it is the Late Roman army that is painted and based to date.  All of the original pictures had a lovely green cast to them undoubtedly due to operator error. Rather than waste the pictures and time taken they are all shown here in sepia to give the feel for the army as deployed.

The above two picture show the foederatii allies at present with at least another three units of heavy foot planned as well as between two and four stands of bow armed skirmishers. This will give a reasonable number of units for Impetus as well as enough for a Basic Impetus army too.

These pictures below show the main elements of the army with the heavy foot in six bases. Figures here are a mixture of Foundry and Gripping Beast.

The main battle line deployed with both archers in support and as skirmishers. There another two bases of archers in support planned for the main battle line.

Light cavalry covering the flank in depth. Here there are more bases than the army list would allow but all have been shown for aesthetics.

"On my mark, unleash hell," from the supporting scorpions and ballista units shown here with all the shooty death types in the one place.

Below are the four stands of the Menapii Seniores  with skirmishers to the front and rear. This was the planned visual effect for these units from the start.

Another unit of light foot, these have the same shield designs as two stands of heavy foot and if figures allow there will be a unit of skirmishers to match.

The first of the medium and heavy cavalry bases. The spear on the lead figure above broke off during taking these pictures. Thankfully this was the only casualty.

The pictures below show as much as possible the army fully deployed. This deployment is purely for the photographs but does show the army to its best.

As all the figures have been left step up as shown, if time permits over the next few days, hopefully there will be a few full colour pictures to show as well.

Hope you all found this worth while.

Cheers for now
