Foundry Late Romans

These are part of an army I painted a very long time ago.  They are Foundry late Romans.  I did them before there were nice shield transfers.  They are very nice figures.

The legions are painted to depict the Ioviani and the Herculiani, the two most senior legions or something like that.  It’s been so long, I don’t really remember the details.

I have sometimes thought about doing more but every time I think about it I get stuck thinking about painting the shields by hand, which is a lot of work, or using transfers, which will maybe make the hand painted ones not look so good, and so this is it.

I have a bunch of other stuff in the army, including a bunch of auxilia also with hand painted shields.  Maybe I’ll photograph them also some time.
