Not my Pink Pikemen

My friend Craig Davies (who was one of the principle collaborators of last year's Zama project), has sent me some photos of some of the beautiful new Aventine pikemen that he has painted.

He says that the shield transfers he has used are LBMS, designed for Crusader, so are a little bit big, but they do go right to the edge of the Aventine shield with a bit of careful trimming.

He has based the colour scheme on this picture from the Vergina tombs:-

I think he has done a superb job!  Lovely basing, too.

Hills part deux

I've spray painted the six hills that I started yesterday, and some of them can be seen, below.  They still need tufts and other vegetation added, which I'll do later this week.  I'm really chuffed with them; a good result for a minimum of effort and no cost.  Not like me at all...

The game shown is described on My Very Own Spanish Ulcer blog.
