Auxilium Tencteri

More Early Imperial Romans from Aventine.  I love these figures.  I got these really a long time ago and they’ve been sitting on the table crying out to be painted.  I finally got to them.

I managed to get 15 figures on the stand.  It’s 120×60 I think.  I chose to go with the full unit on a stand for aesthetic reasons.  It looks nice.  If I’d planned a little better I might have managed 16 figs on the stand, but the guys with the skins use a fair amount of real estate.

I got this as a unit deal and it comes with two standard bearer types and a musician with skins.  Gorgeous figures.  All of the figures are gorgeous figures.

Here’s a close-up of my favorite – the officer.

He really should be on a stand by himself.  You can’t see all the detail on the armor all that well when he’s in among the rest of the guys.   But it’s a great figure.

The shields are LBMS transfers of course – makes doing these kind of armies easy.

I have completed and displayed earlier the Equites Singulares.  I have a cohort of legionaries who are now screaming for my attention.  Soon hopefully.

Some Support for the Aufklarung

We’ll start out with a Pak 40.  It’s a Warlord model.  It’s ok.  Doesn’t come with enough crew for Chain of Command.  I’m not actually sure where the rest of the crew came from although I’m pretty sure I bought it recently.  Ugh.

I’d post the frontal shot but looking at it after photographing makes me realize I need to touch up around the eyes of a couple of the guys.  Eek.  For Chain of Command the AT guns need 5 crew and a leader.  I’ll have to get another guy somewhere for the crew.  And a leader.  I pulled this chap to be a leader but then realized he really belongs with my winter Germans.  Another project.

I’d post a picture, but WordPress seems to have stopped uploading pics.  Nice.  Maybe if I leave my computer for awhile and come back it will start working again.  But hey, it’s free (well, remember, when it’s free, YOU are the product).

Another easy support is the panzershreck.  These things are bad news in Chain of Command.  Basically any allied vehicle they touch is toast.  Excellent.  This is a warlord pair.  They are very nice figures.  And looks like they have plenty of ammo.

And they come in a pack with the flamethrower duet.  I love the way Warlord does these flamethrowers with the spout of flame coming out.  I have a Fallschirmjager version with the same thing.  I absolutely love it.

I’ll go ahead and hit publish.  Maybe the pics will come along later….
