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.

Love those close up shots the figures are fantastic. The shields really set them off too, excellent painting Simon.
