They're turning out great.  I always admire people who can order a ton of figures and work through them consistently.  I find I get overwhelmed and have switched to a lot more smaller purchases made after I paint what I have.

I'm trying to figure out what ancients to do after my Sumerians are done.  This period is definitely tempting me.

Nathan,

The new War and Empire range are fantastic and give you lots of options for armies.  They should be on general release soon!

The first batch have been painted and given a coat of Army Painter Dark Tone.  All that needs doing is to finish the bases, my least favorite part of all!

Here are 192 Hastati, 48 for each legion.......2 Roman and 2 Allied.  You can blame my megalomania on on the fantastic Olicanalad's Blog, http://olicanalad.blogspot.com/ by John Roach.

Still to do 192 Principes, 64 Triarii and 48 Cavalry

Here are 192 Hastati.....they are divided into 4 legions, 2 Roman, red and white shields and 2 Allied, blue and yellow.

I have chosen 5 smock colours as I am with the school of thought that if they were responsible for equipping themselves there would be a range of colours used.

To come 192 Principes, 64, Triarii and 24 Cavalry......now that is Legion! lol

They look great, very fast work.  I really like the mixed tunic colours because it gives them a slightly ad hoc appearance.  Is that a simple block colour followed by army painter or have you added some highlights as well?

It's simple block paint and then a good coat of Army Painter Dark Tone.  Once dry, given at least 24hrs given a spray matt varnish finish

I haven't tried the Army Painter yet but I will give a try when my order from West Wind arrives.  Thanks.

Two more parts of my Punic Wars Roman army completed, the Roman Legion (red shields) Triarii and Equestrians.  These are one unit per legion.

Really happy with these.
