|"Where's your linothorax, you 'orrible little man?"|
The Aventine Miniatures range of Tarentine figures has been perfect for the more technologically advanced Gloranthan military units.
The elite pikemen of the Cult of Yelmalio are now complete. There's a bunch of others still in Undercoat Limbo, but their less ornate kit means they'll probably be fielded as militia. Stout chaps, but not the sort you'd hire to take a strategic hill. They're more like Dad's Army.
These fellows, by comparison, are all kitted up to the nines, as befits a famous heavy infantry unit (well, except for that one on the right - he'll be doing guard duty out at the Old Sun Dome ruins for the next two seasons, I know it!). The shields were painted freehand, mostly with the Truth Rune beloved of the Cult, but I varied things a bit with the Fire/Sun and Light Runes as well.
So here's the unit ranked up on the Warbases sabot base for "To the Strongest!" Thanks to Millsy for the idea; this way I can use them in skirmish or RPGs as well!
What's with the three vacant spots at the front though? That's for the command group from a couple of weeks ago, so here they are in their rightful place;
It was hard to find time to get these guys done now that I'm back at work, but these lovely sculpts really repay the effort. And it's the first actual unit I've competed in ages, which is nice.
Still got a lot left in the lead pile though - stay tuned!
Fine work again Evan! As I contemplate another miserable winter day here is the Canadian Prairie, I must say the idea of this "Sun Dome" is very compelling. As is this other notion you mention so briefly in your post - this so-called "summer"....
I won't need to resort to any Truth Runes to tell you this all looks very lovely and is a fun read. And I continue to be impressed by how sharp all these mass units are looking even with sabot-type basing. Excellent work all around - that will be another 45 points for you.
I, er, strongly suggest following up to ensure you get your points, as the Google Spreadsheet is working about as well as these things ever do...*cough*....
