Caesarian Romans

Finally I got round to picking up some shield transfers for my Warlord Games Romans, and someone keeps mentioning my Romans whenever I praise his "Michal" from the famous and massively impressive Draw crypt. So without further a do
 Not quite in the same class but still my first stumbling attempts at caesarian Romans. 
 They are just incase anyone was wondering plastic figures, and very nice they are. I'm planning on adding more soon but I have so much going on at the moment time is in short supply 
 The little big man transfers are a little tricky to start with but once you get the hang of them it's pretty straight forward. 

So thanks for looking 
   Cheers for now Russ

The 1st Virginia Cavalry

It's being a while since I last posted, well it certainly feels like it. So this time it's something for my own collection! I've added some more Rebel Cavalry, and who else could I add other than the 1st Virginia Cavalry.
 Lighting here today is terrible but I'm hoping that the photos are up to scratch, it would be a shame not to do justice to these lovely little sculpts. They are excellent little figures and they have painted up nicely as always with Dixon miniatures. 
 I'm hoping the black as turned out okay, I've used two different greys to highlight between the facings on the uniform and all the black equipment. I have done a little bit of work on these figures, nothing major! The officer is simply a trooper with his carbine removed, the standard bearer just needed a gauntlet on the had holding the flag. I could of just painted it without adding it but it just bugged me and if your going to do it, then do it right. The bugler was also a trooper with a arm swap for a Perry's plastic bugle arm, and the gauntlet added with greenstuff. 
 So that's about it, I always enjoy painting Dixon ACW miniatures. I think it kind of shows with the amount I have in my still growing collection. 
 What's next, well knowing me it could be absolutely anything from Space Marines to more ACW. 
So catch you all soon
Cheers for now Russ
