I had a productive day yesterday, and the 90-odd legionaries above are now inked, varnished and highlighted. The tarted-up eBay cohorts at the back now match Nick's at the front, much better. Below, left, are Nick's command stands, and right some mere primed legionaries that I'm going to mix in, to add a little variety. Red seems like a promising base colour... I'm still mulling over what to do with the horses at the back.
I've decided I'm going to base four cohorts in the first instance, and, after an interval, paint the extra figures for another two.
