Wargames Foundry Late Imperial Romans Part 2

I have finally finished...well I think....the last of my Late Imperial Roman Army for a 600pt Impetvs game. The last couple of units where originally from Barry Lee's old collection: The troops had seen many battles and were required a make and mend in order to bring their fighting spirt back. So I have add a few highlights but trying to maintain the same original colour scheme and have also rebased the lads to match the rest of the army. In the end I think they came up a treat.

Very nice indeed!

Steven Williams said...

It's a satisfying feeling to refurbish old minis - yours look great.

Vinnie said...

Thanks both Caliban and Steven, these boys sure did come up well and I am more than happy with them. The Foundry Late Roman range is old but still one of the best out there.

Great stuff. Could I ask what paints you have use don your basing? I am ready for a change to the way I do mine, and yours look stunning here.

Christopher(aka Axebreaker) said...

As expected it looks great and I agree the Foundry late Romans may be old, but are still a great range!


Carlo said...

Beautiful figures Nathan. The Foundry romans are one of their best ancient ranges.

Beautiful looking units!

Once again great work on the rebasing really makes the figures pop!

Nicely done, the archers look much better.

Hello Lawrence,

In regards to the basing paints I use a 50/50 mix of water and Tallran Sand (Citadel paints) as the base coat. Once it has dried I use Iraqi Sand (Vallejo) which is dry brushed on in three coats. Each coat I add a little white to lighten the colour.

I hope that helps?

Thanks for the information Vinnie, much appreciated.

I'll definitely be giving that a go on future projects. I ordered some TAG Ottoman Turks on the back of the last tip you gave me by the way, and am eagerly awaiting their arrival.

Great figures as usual 🙂

No dramas Lawrence I am happy to have helped.

Thanks Matt and Gordon for your comments.
