New year, new thread. Back to the Romans! I finished up my Triarii this week and also spent some time putting together bases for everything.

Now I have usable units for Triumph! and can use the figures in a skirmish game as well. Next up is the Principes, cavalry and then I need to figure out the shields. I'm looking at some sort of decal at this point.

Thanks Apoc. I haven't seen anything from you lately, life busy?

A few of us within the Adeptus Ineptus have been tossing around idea of playing 40k second edition and one guy came in so hot and heavy for the Dark Angels the other day I felt compelled towards a bit of joshing. Enter Brother Sassus of the Angels of Redemption (not Dark Angels!). Maybe I'll do an army one day, but in the meantime I settle for making a chapter decal for him and finishing the base.

Yeah, life stuff. Won't be doing much hobbying for a bit except making trying to finish up a vangaurd 3mm force.
Great to see the 2nd ed marine though, i've been going on a bit of a nostalgia trip hobby-wise while i've been away from actual physical hobbying, dreaming of a lot of 2nd and early 3rd ed minis for some reason!

It's a good era. I've been collecting it for so long it's nice to put some paint on them.

Well, if you're going to troll one friend you might as well troll another. Same deal as last time, except Brother Sassus of the Angels Sanguine (not Blood Angels!) is now all painted up. I'm pretty happy with how the red came out. I throw him on the decal and basing que as well.

Lovely work on those old-school marines. Fills my heart with warm fuzzy nostalgia!

Thanks Axel. Ya, they're fun. I tried to use as much of the CdA as I could.

I finished up my principes for a game of Triumph! this Saturday. I should be able to get them some bases by then too. I need to start figuring out what I'm going to do for all their shields. I'll probably track down some design and make decals for them.

These Roman Extraordinarii kind of came along for the ride as I was working on the Principes. They just needed a bit more work that I completed tonight. I also finished up the bases for them and the Principes too.

I spent this week cleaning, priming and glueing shields on the Triarii, Principes and Extraordinarii. I also painted up the Triarii's shields. I glazed one in the recesses to tone down the shading, not sure if I like it yet. Thoughts? I don't know why I spent so much time on the figures, the shields cover 80% of the detail.

Assuming the glazed one is third from left, I think i prefer the higher contrast on the non glazed

Thanks Apoc. I ended up glazing but also trying to keep it away from the recesses.

Work continues on the shields. I finished them for the Principes and Extraordinarii this week. On to the Hastati next.

The Hastatus shields are done as of tonight. I've got four bases of cavalry to do next, then everything needs some top coats and basing.

The cavalry conversions got finished up this week, and they got primed and based as well.

Image

I also had this Cretan leader type hanging around so I painted him up too. Not sure what he's going to be used for yet.

I've been working on the Roman cavalry these past weeks and finished up the Equites (aside for the shields) tonight.
