Back To The Future

Back to my post Roman Britain unit upgrade which proceeds at the rate of a speeding slug. Below is the seventh Saxon unit to be made up to four bases, another twelve figures will get them up to the eight unit target while their opponents require me to paint a further twelve infantry and eight cavalry. However I do have a bolt thrower that can be used to make eight units when the infantry are done.
Gripping Beast figures, LBMS shield transfers, Warbases bases.

The future? Well the rather funky new early Byzantines from Aventine Miniatures are just to good to resist,a new project for 2020, with the added bonus that I can use my Goths to oppose them, although do I hear Sassanian war drums beating?

  1. Splendid additions to your Ancients. Let's hope the Byzantines make an appearance before the Fall of Constantinople 😉
