Martenses Seniores

And here is my second Auxilia unit, the Martenses Seniores, another Legiones Comitatenses shield design.   Again, lovely shield painting work from the anonymous eBayer.


Again I've based them so that I can deploy them in line (above) or cuneus (below).  Pics are clickable.


Inspired by the period, I've decided to paint up half a dozen huns that I prepped and undercoated around 2 years ago.  There is nothing sadder than a primed figure waiting to be painted, and gradually getting more and more chipped...  I'll be ready if the Society of Ancients pick Chalons for next year!

If anyone wants to swap some unpainted Foundry Late Romans, I'm after some...

They look fantastic. Those shields must have taken considerable time to finish!

These look lovely. Who are you going to paint up to fight them...that's the next big question.

Thanks all!

Hi Secundus, I put a brush to some Huns last night, I have 4 or 5 units worth of them, painted, and at least as many unpainted.

I also have a good-sized Pictish army (15+ units) which I painted some years ago, and which will feature here soon, when I finish off the last unit.

Trouble is, I need a lot more late Romans before I can game...
