The rain in Spain…

…falls mainly on the hordes of Spanish warriors charging down from the hills!

Just finished re-basing the Spanish I got off Ian. I’d painted up a few command groups for them, two more stands of light horse, and re-based the first of my Celitiberians to give the army a good solid core!

So this was the start:


Nice neat paint job but no shading and basic bases. The army now looks like this:


Organised towards a FoG Basic Starter Army, all figures (apart from the Celtiberians) had a Klear wash.


The Celtiberians were the Spanish Allies for my old DBM Carthaginian army and needed rebasing as Heavy Foot rather than WB(F). They’re Donnington figures and although a little poor compared to some ranges now, they paint up rather nicely!



The LH on the left I painted to match those on the right…


I’m rather pleased with them really. So abig thanks to Ian for getting this army off the ground from a few allies to a full army!

I had ordered figures from Essex to do more Cavalry, Gauls, the rest of my Carthaginian Veteran Spear, a pack of Spanish Generals and a few other gap fillers. These arrived last week. TODAY… while tidying up I found a box with a pile of packs of figures at the bottom. And there was: Spanish Cavalry, Gauls, the rest of my Carthaginian Veteran Spear, a pack of Spanish Generals and a few other gap fillers and a load more Scutarii! Looks like I can now push the Light Horse up to maximum, more Cavaly so they can still be used with Romans and Carthaginians, and a couple more Scutarii BGs.

So, I still have 16 Celtiberians to give me my 2nd BG to paint. My 16 triarii. And a lot of Spanish! I may well do them in the same style: white undercoat, block and wash. When the wash works well they look fine.

Must update the total to the right now…
