Roman Auxiliary Infantry

Moving along with my 3rd Century Romans for Infamy! Infamy' which are now actually starting to resemble a force! I just need a few leaders now and I'll be able to field the core of my army with a couple options, however I'll of course want more then a couple options.

Anyways back to the unit on hand are some light infantry which no Roman commander worth his salt would leave camp without or he would quickly find his legionaries either outflanked or falling into a nasty ambush in some dark woods without these vital troops to scout ahead.

While making big armies has it's place(great fun!) I do rather enjoy building these pocket armies that TFL games offer as the entry level isn't very high to get started, but for those wanting more you will find this in the options available so while your army my not be very large on any given game you will want to build a lot of options to handle the different scenarios and campaigns thus your collection can end up being very large indeed so in the end you become spoiled for choice just as if you were collecting large armies. Nice!

The figures are from A&A which are very nice straightforward to paint and the bases were made to order from Colin over at Charlie Foxtrot Models. The figures were painted with Vallejo, Foundry and some P3 paints and some MIG pigments for dusting of stones and shields.

The challenge is nearing the end and I need to do some leaders but they won't make it into the challenge but are probably what I'll do next.

Thanks for viewing!
