Something different

Rome - Republican Army
Manufacturer:  Aventine Miniatures
Scale:  28mm


Hi,

I had been very busy since my holidays and time for painting up figures was very rare.
So the last post concerning finished figures was in the mid of August I think.

Simultaneously I wanted some alternation to my most favourite period, the SevenYearsWar and turned over to the Early Republican Rome, the period which is my second favourite.


So I decided to finish one of those wonderful Aventine figures that I´ve bought for another project some weeks ago. 

Painting this miniature had been great fun and these figures are one of the best figures I´ve ever seen for this great period.


The shield decals are from LittleBigMan Studios and in my opinion also one of the best on the market.




The only things missing are matt virnish and some other figures to build a first base.

By the way, this was just a short excursion. 
The next figures on my table are again units for the SevenYearsWar.

So many projects, so many wonderful figures, such less time - such a shame. :)

Cheers
Mike

  1. I like! This has ALWAYS been my favourite Roman period, its just something about the armour and helmets that draws me to it.

    I think you are right about the decals, those LBM ones are awesome! As usual your paint job is very nice.

    1. Thank you, Thomas.

      As I already mentioned - too many projects, too many figures, too less time.

      I´m thinking of painting up some Japanese soldiers for OperationSquad. I must be crazy.

  4. What a great looking figure Mike, you've made a great job on him. It's a great period to paint, all the strange looking outfits and feathers of different colours. I'll look forward to seeing more of these.
