Just a quick post to show some pictures of the troops I haven’t blogged yet.
Light foot Comitatenses – These guys seem to have been more flexible than their earlier counterparts. Impetus allows both light and heavy incarnations of the legionary. I plan to have a double line with the lights passing through the heavy’s when needed.
The Equites – The native italian cavalry - These take the form of light or medium cavalry in impetus. They seem to have focused on the skirmish/scouting role in the historical context, leaving the crazy charging stuff to the cataphractii and “barbarian” allies.
Ballistarii – Pretty useless in the rules but I fancied painting one up. I will probably only use it occasionally.TIP - make your final stage of painting a deep shading one. I use GW badab black wash. Just darken the dividing lines betwen areas such as the hands and shirt. This is similar to outlining but much easier with a good wash than with paint!
