The second army I started after getting back into the hobby was Imperial Romans. My Pict forces that I started way back when in College needed somebody to fight, after all, and Romans are the logical opponent. Unfortunately, I was apparently still under the impression in the early 2000’s that you needed to paint eyes. Fortunately somewhere along the way I figured it out and stoped that foolishness.
These figures are a mix of Old Glory, Black Tree Design and one other manufacturer who’s name I can’t recall. There may also be one or two old 1980’s RalPartha figure mixed in as well. For some reason in my cloudy memory I thought I had more troops than this. Oh well, that’s the purpose of this exercise to get them all out and see what’s there. I know I saw more Black Tree Design Roman’s in the lead pile, maybe they need to get a little attention next?
The morning light through the game room windows seems to cause some issues with the photos. Live and learn I guess.
First up, the obligatory unit of Javelin skirmishers.
And a Testudo, again Black Tree Design figures. Impractical for games? Maybe, but I just like the way it looks.
