From RobH - Roman Auxilia (170 points)

My first Roman Army consisted of  Airfix plastics. It was painted while I was in High School and was used to play both a variation of Chainmail and WRG's Ancient Rules 5th Edition. It was later replaced by a 25mm lead army with a mix of figures sometime in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

By 2005 I started to replace these 25 year old veterans with a mix of Wargames Foundry, Gripping Beast and Warlord Games figures  I was able to pick up at local shops and on Ebay.  I was going through the mountain of unpainted figures and pulled these two units out. The Western Roman Archers  are by Warlord Games. I believe the auxilia spearmen are a pack of 10 figures by Wargames Foundry. I could be wrong on that point. The command figures are a mix of Gripping Beast and Warlord Games.

The single figure with the yellow plumage is to serve as my Curtgeld. In total there are 32 figures in two Aux Units of 16 figure each. The legionnaire's shield was already completed and was taken out of my spare parts box. It's not a proper Aux shield, but either it was picked up off the field or perhaps a Centurion found himself temporarily attached to the Aux. 

Sorry Rob, this post should have been posted earlier. But here it is, just a couple of hours before H-Hour. Nice job on these Romans. I like the details on you shields and for this reason will throw in an extra 10 points. Happy Challenge ending! (Sylvain)

AND I gave you an extra 20 Points for the wonderful Curtgeld. Thank you Rob!
