Miniatures are Forged in Battle again and I'm still impressed with the quality of their offerings. It wasn't till I was almost done with these when I realised I had painted their shields in the colours of my favourite football teams arch rivals. No harm though, this way it will only be easier to sacrifice them for the greater good I guess. Fortuna wills it.
The next base is of no real combat value in Impetus other than to be attached to another base in order to depict the unit to which the General is attached to. I would have loved to include a pair of Lictors (no, not the Tyranid ones from 40k) carrying their fasces to symbbolize the high ranking status of the general but unfortunately I wasn't able to track some down in 15mm. Well, at least not till the base was finished and I happened to stumble across *these*. Next time I'd say...
The General is supposed to depict Gaius Iulius Caesar, but in all honesty I don't see much of a resemblance here.
In order to not make it look silly when attaching the base to a unit of infantry I opted for a rather static pose with these miniatures.
So, that's it for today. All in all this entry should give me another whooping 30 points towards my goal but unfortunately not enough to catch up with ChrisS in our little side duel.
Stunning work Nick!
Same as last time, I initially looked at this entry without looking at the title and thought they were very fine 28s. But no, they're 15mm. Wow. Just wow.
I really like your German auxiliaries. They have that wild, untamed look, but yet the green of their shields ties them all together nicely. I also really like your Caesar command base. I could immediately see the resemblance with his grey cropped hair and the regal purple of his armour. The decision to keep his base relatively static in pose is a good one, especially as he will be spending a lot of his time attached to infantry units.
Lovely work Nick!
