As regular readers will have noticed the picture I posted of my newly painted slingers on the last post was rubbish, so here an other slightly better shot which gives a impression of a few of them.
Over the weekend I completed a couple of bolt shooters these are a mix and match battle group using one Corvus Belli set and the other is a Donnington miniatures set kitted out in a the earlier style of Roman uniform dating from the period of the Marius reforms.
This mix and match approach appeals to my sense of non uniformity in uniforms. Although it is most likely highly inaccurate to mix the uniforms from two different periods. Nevertheless the concept of non uniformity is explored in part in a useful article, albeit relating to 20th century conflict, entitled “Why Was the Red Baron's Fokker Painted Red? Decoding the Way Aeroplanes Were Painted in the First World War” War History
As well as these additions I finished off my battle groups archers eight stands in total. I am pleased with the way these guys have turned out, never having fielded archers before I wonder how they fair once I get them into battle?
