I haven't painted the model yet.

The painted model pictured in my post is from Footsore's webstore.

When you're being mistaken for official promo material, you must be doing something right ;)

I love to read the thoughts that go into the army and each miniature here. Great attention to detail and dedication to make the most out of existing miniatures, the green stuff work really paid of!

Also really happy to read that you are going to expand into Romans as well! Very inspiring as usual...because of you I ordered Gripping BEast Ponies for my Welsh, because the footsore ones are just too thin and frail. Now they all need new saddle blankets  o_o lol

Aside from expanding my SAGA terrain collection, I haven't done much painting since Adepticon.  I've done plenty of assembly and conversion work, but I just can't make myself paint minis. 

Part of the problem may be that starting new projects always seems so daunting.  So rather than tackling an entirely new warband, I'm going to get myself back into the habit of painting by beginning work on a smaller project, further expanding my Britons so I can use them as Age of Invasions Romans.

Below are my planned additions, a new warlord, 12 Levy (no equipment), and 12 Roman horse archers.  I've already started putting paint on the Levy. 






The list that I have in mind is a shooty, Warrior heavy list.

WL - mounted
10 Warriors -bows
10 Warriors -mounted & comp bows
8 Warriors -no equipment
8 Warriors -no equipment
12 Levy - no equipment
1 Manuballista

Ah new Britons! What a joy!

Great selection of miniatures as usual, looking forward to seeing the levies painted! They will get shields though? Otherwise their empty hands look a bit strange...

Sounds like a good plan...the first miniatures of a new project always feel so daunting because it feels like they determine how all the rest is going to go. But it's often after painteing 8-10 minis that you really get into things.

Yes. The Levy will be equipped with same oval shields carried by my other Briton/Roman infantry.  To further distinguish them from my Warriors, Iím going to use the black Chi Rho LBM transfers.

Due to the size and placement of the shields on these models, I will paint the model and shield separately.
