These chaps are getting seriously close to completion! I'm 11 sessions in and 3 more should finish them, including basing. This is rather faster than the Triarii and should enable me to finish one legion by Salute.
In other news... Greg has kindly offered to paint some more miniatures, Hannibal's Bruttian veterans from Southern Italy. These are going to be a mix of Aventine and Crusader miniatures. Also, I've identified the materials for the base boards and will get on with them once I've finished my dissertation.
