And so it began...

My intention for this blog is for it to be a record of my gaming experiences, trials, tribulations and painting and modelling efforts.

Roman camel riders

Here is my latest addition to my eastern roman army, camels!! When I saw the models I loved them so have slightly pushed the boundaries and am using them as CM without their camel ability. Means I can field more stands otherwise I would be limited to one stand of CL as allies. Just have to put some static grass on the base but have exhausted my current stash.

Romans on bases

Well made abit of a dent in my Roman army. Four stands painted and just stuck on bases. Took me most of Friday and Saturday but got there. I have two stands of skirmishers I will paint up tonight to complete a good few days. Next big job is four stands of spear, 32 figures, which I hope to finish by the end of next week. After that just six stands of cavalry and my baggage plus a few casualty markers.

First Roman

First test model done. Can't believe I only have about 5 weeks to finish this army but I guess that's the task I set myself and I am determined to finish. Have next few days off so will try and forge ahead to see how fast I can paint.
