Painting log: Roman auxilia

October 7, 2009 10:20 PM - Posted by Robartes - Category: Painting Log

To augment my growing plastic Roman army, I just finished a unit of 15 of Warlord Games new plastic auxilia.

While I like their legionaries, I’m not an undivided fan of these auxilia (which is a bit of a shame, as I’ve got 4 boxes of them :) ). They are nice figures, but they have a few drawbacks. One of them is that it is virtually impossible to build them differently than intended - the seperate arms are so specific to each pose that it leads to extremely silly results when you combine them with the body of a different pose (spot the auxilia with the extremely small arm in upcoming photos). Secondly, the spears they are armed with are plastic, and just in handling them while painting I already broke 3 of them - I shudder to think how much they will suffer in a game.

That said, this month’s total is now 15 points. Last month, I got up to 62, just shy of my target of 70 per month.

Next up is 6 metal (old Foundry figs) cavalry for my Celtic army.
