Project Zama Complete!
This week I finished my Roman Republican army for the 2nd Punic War, the project I've been working on for the past 5 months. If you haven't been following my progress, the figures are based for Impetus and Sword and Spear. The legionaries are mostly from Agema Miniatures, with a few from Relic Miniatures added in for variety. Cavalry are all from Relic, as are some of the command figures. Most of the command figures are from Crusader, and the slingers are from Wargames Factory.
The final roll call:
6 bases of hastati
6 bases of principes
4 bases of triarii
5 bases of velites
2 bases of slingers
2 bases of Roman cavalry
2 bases of Numidian horse
2 bases of Campanian allied cavalry
1 base of Campanian infantry
3 command stands (for Sword and Spear)
For a grand total of 193 infantry figures and 24 cavalry
I've stayed very focused on these for the last few months, and so I'm itching to paint something different. With Paul of the Man Cave's imminent return to the gaming world it's time to make a serious push on out 6mm ECW project, although I've got a few gladiators to paint along the way.
My Romans have seen two battles of Basic Impetus so far, and been victorious in both. Here's Steve looking despondent after his latest defeat.
I'm really keen to play a full game of Impetus, so please add encouraging messages to get him to paint the rest of his army.
