Thank you all!
I recently finished some Triarii and they've already made it to the latest game.
I also shared a bunch of the stuff I finished in 2018.. . hoping 2019 adds a lot more to the collection!

https://steepledhatstudios.blogspot.com/2019/01/goodbye-2018-looking-back-at-painting.html


















Here's one division of my Romans fighting bazookajoe's wonderfully painted Carthaginians

Carthage got thrashed this go round, but that's simply because it was the Triarii bringing beginners luck to the dice rolls their first game.  Carthaginian Veterans are always a force to be reckoned with.

Great looking miniatures. I have a lot of Victrix models my self for various factions of the Punic Wars. Its a great war to paint miniatures for, as they can all be used against and with eachother, and they can form armies themselves when you have enough. I dont think I will never finish painting Victrix Punic Wars miniatures.

Great job.


Cheers
Erik

Thank you everyone for the warm words.

I plan to - there's been a few unboxing and I released one recently for my first look at Mortal Gods, coming out this March. Not sure how much I'll play, but I will probably end up getting the core rule set, just to get the Victrix hoplites out of it!
I also have a few more buddies who are interested in also doing Lion Rampant - so certainly there will be more Hail Caesar, as well as some medieval madness popping up on the channel  in the future.

I hear that!  I've got everything and then some out of Victrix for Punic Wars. Carthage will be a fun army to paint up as well, though I am not sure if I'll do the traditional Scutum / chainmail set up that most Carthage players put on for Hannibal's veterans.  Or I may. We'll have to see when I get to it - but that will be a future project for sure!


I've still got at least half of a legion to finish, and then some.. so this work shall continue into this year and beyond!

Fortunately, the pictures were taken just before all the Carthaginians were slaughtered or fled the battlefield.  It was a terrible sight! The Romans just steamrolled them.

I also like the flexibility of Punic Wars era figures.  I plan to turn those Numidian allies into an army of their own at some point.

I look forward to destroying the Numidians and all their Elephants, haha!
