Navy Lark


21 more marines and a centurion for my naval legion; just 18 minis left to go, now!  And the shields, and basing, of course.   This time, I swapped a bunch of heads for the sake of variety.   The centurion was nicked from a previous project.

lovely work as always BRB, I have been working on your character for my own Roman Campaign, 'Biblus Rabatus'will be taking over from Tullus and leading the Senetorial forces. Not sure quite when though as I still have a lot of painting to do.

What company do you buy your spears from btw?

Splendid Simon, always loved your campaign! Hope to run my own in the spring.

The spears are Norh Star, but I file the ends to a leaf-like shape. I have a nifty technique for painting the heads, so they look more spear-like.

Thanks all!

Hi Paul, I must spend 20 hours painting for every one gaming, these days, m'self.

I'll try to write up the spearhead thing; this lot aren't my best, a bit rushed.
