After the Sagittarii, there were only a few men left to paint in order to complete the army: 2 archers (the second Psiloi element), 1 Hunnic rider, and two clibanarii for the command group.
Here they are - first, the command element (3Cv): like the other 3Cv element, they belong to the Equites Constantiani feroces.
The general - a Miniart figure. Not as nice as his Hät comrades, but he'll do the job.
The standard bearer - I appreciated to paint a draco banner .
And here you can see the two Cv elements together.
Next unit, the Huns as LH(figures by Lucky Toys).
And last, the archers (Italeri) to support the Victores Iuniores.
So for DBA, my army is complete, at last !!
Wait, you don't believe it ? You're right, because I am slightly cheating. First, I have to base them all, something I don't like to do, but it is impossible to play without bases. and I also need a base to represent the camp - still looking for a good idea for it, any suggestion ?
That is not all. I also wish to test another promising ruleset named l'Art de la Guerre (AdG) - I have recently discovered that the author probably lived only a few kilometers from here (Lyon), but I really don't know him :)
Although the rules recommend to play with more minis than I usually paint (between 20 and 30 elements for a budget of 200 points), I've read that a good way to start is to use 100 pts armies, which more or less corresponds to the 12 elements required in DBA. And the bases are compatible, that's great.
So, for a 100 pts AdG Late Roman army, I just need to paint:
- a general element, ie a general and staff on a particular element (the riders shown above would in this cas be a second heavy cavalry element)
- a bolt thrower with servants (at least two)
It sounds reachable :) But I plan this painting for later, I first need a break from Late Romans !
See you soon.
