From Curt:Argh! Romans with proper shield adornments! I shake my fist and curse you, sir. :) Seriously, excellent work Brendon. The Romans look marvelous and your Wars of the Roses project continues to sap my will. Again, I love your Bacon & Beer banners - not much better things to rally behind, I think. I look forward to seeing your upcoming mounted figures for this project.

From BrendonW - Romans & Wars of the Roses Banner Bearers (83 Points)
In our household we are getting some work done that is likely to disrupt the painting flow. But before that starts I managed to get some more 28mm dudes completed. First some Early Imperial Romans from Warlord Games. 4 Legionaries and 5 Auxiliary oval shield fighters. They have some multi-basing happening to help them rank up into a tight unit. They have nice animated poses but it will cause ranking up issues if I don't consider this in a unit formation. One auxiliary I cut his arm and repositioned it to point upwards to try and help the ranking up. All shields have decals. The Oval ones come on a clear background while the rectangle ones are fully coloured.
Next is more Banners for my growing Perry War of the Roses collection. 7 Plastic 28mm fellas. 3 flags I designed, 2 trumpet blowers, 1 fancy jacket fella and 1 with a big spear. Sorbitium Fermentum (Drink Beer) and Manducate Lardum (Eat Bacon) is the inscription and possibly the solemn vowel these warriors take. These are probably the last of the banners on foot. I hope to get one more in the force but a mounted standard. Not the best photography but you get the idea. Cheers
