Fall of the western Empire 9: Last of the Limitanei

After two weeks of a hard time at work I was finally able to get the last four of my Limitanei/ Pseudocomitatenses ready for battle. This gives me a legal 4pts. Warband for SAGA. To finish (at least for a while) this project there are only two groups of Comitatenses comprising of eight figures each and three mounted Palatinae/ Advocati left to give me a reasonable sized 7pts. Warband. As 6pts. is the regular gaming size this allows me to customize the army to a certain degree. As I don't think I'll set this army on a backburner for long there will be lots more stuff to choose from. At the moment I'm thinking about some ballistas and scorpios as well as some cataphracts. Not sure how to play these in SAGA though.

Fall of the western Empire 8: Another Bunch of Limitanei

After painting up the first mounted Palatinae I switched back to the Limitanei or more like pseudocomitatenses leaving the pain of painting horses for the end of the project.

Fall of the western Empire 7: First painted miniature this year

First of all I would like to wish all the readers of my Blog a Happy New Year.

Ok now on to some serious stuff. I painted up my first miniature this year and some more are already on the workbench. You see the new year starts quite productive for me.

I painted up the first of four mounted palatinae. The miniature is from the Late Roman/ Early Byzantine Range from Musketeer-Miniatures as almost all of my Late Roman Warband.
