Coh. I et Coh. II Thingummyjigum


I've finished basing the two auxiliary Cohorts from yesterday.  Unfortunately I've misplaced my copy of the SOA publication about the Year of the Four Emperors, which is a pain as I have been naming all my units, from that august work.  When I find this, they will likely become some  flavour of German or Belgian auxilia. 


Both cohorts are BTDs, painted by Dr. Simon's mate, who did great work.  I highlighted extensively, overpainted the shields around the nicely hand-painted designs, and washed with ink in a matt acrylic varnish.  Basing for the two units took around 3 evenings.  All pics are clickable.


Above, you can just make out the space where the unit's name will eventually go, at the rear of the command stand.

This brings me to 9 finished auxiliary cohorts, with 2 more with the painter, and one remaining here to be painted.  Once all 12 are finished I'll focus on the auxiliary cavalry; I need lots of those, too!

Very tasty Simon. Do you know how well these Black Tree figs blend in with the Warlord Games figs?

They would blend in about as well as Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett did with each other, Paul.

Warlords look like hobbits next to BTD! ;-)

Lovely work Simon! It never ceases to amaze me how many painted dollies you keep producing. And always good to see some BTDs.

It's not helping me stay focussed on WW1 you know! I keep hearing the little voices from my EIR calling out "paint me!" ;o)

Cheers

Matt (who is not really hearing voices thank goodness!)
