Not my Spanish!

These figures are part of a Spanish contingent painted by Nick Speller for our Zama game.  He's also painting a good proportion of the veterans.  Nick's a top chap who paints a lot of minis for me.

Nick has painted Masinissa's bodyguard for me; I'm very much looking forward to seeing them!

I'm going to use some of those shield designs as inspiration for my scutarii.

Nice shields on the Spanish infantry.

He's done well, hasn't he? He seems to have mostly painted them, but used transfers, too, for some of the detail bits.

I want a Spanish army of my own, someday. Companion; where art thou?

I love your 'not my...' series.

I wonder what other photos you can post up of things that aren't yours...

I've just posted up a pic of my Spanish cavalry at http://modelromanarmy.blogspot.com/

Shameless plug ;)

But I have lots of Spanish troops from my original idea to incorporate them into my Roman army but they're currently forgotten about at the back of my cupboard :(

Hi Consul,

Spanish within a Roman army is a great concept. There are all the Pompeian armies that Caesar trounced, and also the armies of Sertorius.

I have some great "not my" figures to post a little later!

Great painting!! Foundry/Companion Spanish are fantastic miniatures to use for a full Ancient Spanish Army.

I have one in unpainted 15mm :S.
