DBA Early Imperial Rome

I finally finished a Corvus Belli 15mm DBA army, this is the box set will all options. I also used a bit of FIW resin wooden pallisade as a camp.


Nice figs, good size, excellent detail, paint up well, lots of variety in the poses. On the downside, they were a complete bear to clean up, lots of flash.


Here are the Auxilia


The core of the legion, Blades


Cavalry, I usually prefer the cavalry general for mobility and he is harder to kill than a Blade


Camp:

Not sure how they will fare, tonight Mark is bringing something over to test them against. It is probably a forgiving army to play because it is well balanced, but I think it is also vulnerable to mounted esp if they feature knights. I am also not 100% how to play the mandatory artillery, parked in the camp it keeps your rear safe, but it is tempting to try it out on the battlefield, especially if there are jumbos or tempting bows to shoot at.

Dragoons

I just finished a unit of Parliamentary dragoons, I wanted to do Okey's but I don't know anything about their colours. So they will generic- will have to come up with a guidon of some sort. These are converted Warlord musketeers, firelock party and cavalry. Turned out okay, not as nice as the dragoon models purpose made, but I have lots of material to work with so wanted to give them a try.
Next up: I have just cleaned and primed a Corvus Belli 15mm Early Imperial Roman DBA army. Nice figs, but it took longer to clean and assemble those than a box of 28mm Warlord plastics!

New Model Army pike and shot regiment

Another pike and shot regiment for my New Model Army came off the line this week. The highlight in the unit is the nice preacher model from Warlord games alongside of the command. The figs are all Warlord except for the command which are mostly Foundry. I am still enjoying this project and the painting, but there is quite a way to go yet. Sorry for the pics, very dark today now that winter has arrived.
