Germanic punch!

 

Some more backlog of finished units for the blog with a unit of fanatics and a couple units of slingers to support the German warriors mobs for my Infamy project. The fanatics are great at knocking holes into roman formations and the slingers shots are especially effective vs armor thus they create a German punch.


I wanted the fanatics to look really savage so I used the naked packs and gave them some black charcoal body paint and wicker shields to convey that primal theme that will stand them out from my other Germans.


For the slingers I thought they would be the young warriors of the tribe so I bought the Celtic slinger packs and gave them light beards to give a more Germanic look to them.


The figures are all from Wargames Foundry and are very fun to paint so I recommend buying them if your thinking of collecting Ancient Germans. They are expensive, but frankly still the best imho.


I still of another Infamy unit to post and then a few other things to post then I think I'll be caught up, but probably not finished before the challenge so some of that might get posted during the challenge in between units that I'll be doing for the challenge itself, but I'll make a note of that.

Thanks for viewing!

  1. oh yes these look awesome, great painting colours on the figures too. Wargames foundry are very pricey and their shipping costs are to high forcing me to look/buy figures here in the US at lower costs, perhaps I will go for Dark ages 28mm plastic miniatures?... well done on your Germans Christopher!
    cheers.
