next base of psiloi

I can't get enough of
can you get enough of.... psiloi

I had some test painted celts hanging around here so I did a aditionally DBA Psiloi base with casualities.
I don't need it, but I want it !! Like at my last base the ground is swamp. Additionaly I did a generic dark age shield design to be able to use the element in all forthcoming Dark age armies. In my Roman army its named: ,,Numerus Nemetum''.

Free Russia !!!

I painted these miniatures a while ago its the first quarter of my neo soviet ''army''.
The miniatures are converted WW2 russians from BTD which I get on a ebay for little money the weapons(AK74 and AT4) are from TAG, the shotgun from the Near Future Foundry range.
A lot of photos:

Numerus Taunensium

A other Ps element, recruited from the civitas Taunensium:

I don't know if you know, but....Trier in Germany was the Capital of the Roman Empire !!
And so they had their own Cohors Praetoria, even their shields have to be matt varnished:

Legio II Germanica

The photos aren't as sharp as their sword but her she is: The ,,Legio II Germanica''

first Legion

This Legio is my first in 15mm. It represents the ,,LEGIO I GERMANICA''. The main difference between the Auxilia and the Legions in this time was the armament represented by the reinforced helm.

Next Cohort

Here she is the ,,COHOR III MATTIACORUM PEDITATA''. She is the last Cohort of the Mattiacii. Maybe I will paint another base in the same scheme to enable a battle unit(e.g. 4 stands) in the far future.

Spring ??

The last day were cloudy and grey. But today it's quite sunny and the birds are chirping:

New design

I'm sorry for the lack of post. I painted a lot last week and so there was no time to update. Additionaly I changed the design to a better viewable look.
I hope to update some stuff today and tomorrow.

first Auxilia Cohorte finished

Here are photos of my frst finished Auxilia Cohort for DBA:
The ,,Cohors I Mattiacorum peditata''

Its the first one so the painting is quite experimental. The name is not historic but because I live next to Wiesbaden (Aquae Mattiacorum) its quite personal. If they slaughter the enemy I will give my cohorts invidual titles like ,,pia fideles'' just like an emperor :-) .
