July Update

Its been Quite Quiet on the Wargaming front this month.
 been focusing on painting on my two projects at the moment.


First being my Warmaster Ancient Roman force

Second project is my warhammer 40'000 Orks.
 i've build and undercoated most of the force, just waiting to get a weirdboy in finecast to finish the list off.

With Claymore edinburgh only a few weeks away. Claymore has always been a big event in the wargaming calender.  I have been attending this event for the last three years but this is the first time i have been running urban war demo games there. so i've been preparing all the Urban War 2nd edition Demo gear at the event.

Early Imperial Romans - Warmaster Ancients -Part I

Early Imperial Romans - Warmaster Ancients
Part I

The long awaited Warmaster ancients finally arrived from the lovely people at Baccus.




The first thing i must say is the that Miniatures are great. The main infantry comes in strips of  four (as you can see from the pictures above), and you need two for each rank and they fit perfectly on a base of 40x20mm.


I started to build one of each unit to see if i could paint then in the unit or whether I'd have to paint each rank at a time. Luckily enough i have been able to paint the second rank with no difficulty. The Baccus stuff is 6mm scale, smaller than standard warmaster, but i like the smaller miniatures as it gives a grander epic scale to the force.


Auxilia Archers

Scorpion bolt throwers


Legion

Skirmishers

My force list:

General
2 Legates     

1 unit of Veteran Legionaries      
4 units of Legionaries             
3 units of Auxiliary Infantry      
2 units of Auxiliary heavy cavalry 
1 unit of Auxiliary light cavalry  
2 units of Auxiliary Archers       
1 unit of Scorpion Bolt Throwers            
2 units of Skirmishers
