My friend Joe painted a couple of units of Auxilia for me. These are notionally eastern auxilia units, recently recruited, unarmoured with helmets of local manufacture, but Roman shields. I used the Aventine Sassanid spearmen standing with the oval Middle Imperial Roman shields. I think he did a great job painting them, and these are some of my favorite, generally useful figures.
I suppose I should name the units. Each pair of stands, front and back, count as a unit/stand in ADLG, but I kept them on generic WRG/DBM style bases for other potential uses at some point in the future. I love this particular shield pattern.
Here is the other unit.
That’s a very busy shield pattern. It reminds me of shields that were dug up in Dura-Europos. I think these make fine Eastern auxilia for my Middle Imperial Roman army.
I need to get these into a game now.
