With the legionnaire infantry complete, I was able to move on to some fun command figures this week.
I was able to complete 5 command figures for my Caesarian Romans. They are from a mix of manufactures. The mounted standard bearer is from first corps.
The Imperator figure on the white horse is from Warlord Games. I really enjoy the figure although his right arm in the 'hailing" position did give me trouble when trying to glue it. I may be re-basing him on a larger base to resist the temptation of picking him up by his arm.
Since I am complaining, the mounted standard bearer's standard is about 2 millimeters too tall to fit in the box I have set aside for them!
The portly Legate on the right is perhaps of of my favorite figures of all time. Not only have he had a few too many door mice he also has a bald spot. I love it when miniatures manufactures add these type of "real" characters. Not every roman general looked like Russell Crowe.
Finally a close up of the third Legate.
With the Roman leadership taken care of I decided to push on and add some Numidian Light horse allies. The Numidians are a mix of Wargames Foundry, Warlord Games and Navigator. I think they mix fairly well although the Navigator horses are not very attractive they do add character to the unit.
Here are some close ups. The skin tone was a challenge and I am not completely happy with the results. I have another 10 or so Numidian light horse to paint so I may try a different process.
This week I was able to complete 25-28mm cavalry.
