Carthaginian Army Almost Complete

Since moving into my new house at the end of Summer, I've had a hard time trying to get back into the painting groove. However, the guys and I have all made a concerted effort to get back on the production wagon, and frankly, I've produced more in the last 3 or 4 days than I did during the entire month of September.

I'm glad to report that my 400-point Carthaginian army for Impetus is almost finished. I finished painting the additional 30 gauls I needed this weekend past, and the slingers were painted quickly this evening.


The photo below shows what's left to complete. I'm so tantalizingly close at this point that I find it difficult to tear myself away for other distractions (i.e.work, life, etc...)


I will finish the painting and basing this week. Then all I have to do is wait for Chris H.'s Romans to hit the table and I'll be able to bring you all some classic Punic War-style reports.

Thanks for reading,
JET

Looks really great. Actually I can't handle 15mm, but that's so tempting...

Ask Lorenzo for a percentage, as you're a highly valuable promoter of his game. ;-)

"Actually I can't handle 15mm"

These are 10mm Carthaginians by Pendraken actually. I'm happy enough for Lorenzo to keep advancing the game. Now... would I turn away any free or discounted books?... ;)

Oops, actually meant to write "15mm and smaller scales", of course. ;-)

If it's of any help for convincing Lorenzo: I bought the rule book right after reading your reports.

Hi Jet,

Do you cut your own bases or buy them precut. I'm too lazy to make my own, but I'm looking for someone in Canada who does precut MDF. Postage rates from the UK keep rising...

Actually, Stu (the Parthian player) was the Baccus dealer for Canada up until a few years ago. I actually procured my bases from him. Whether they are a Baccus product or not, I'm not sure.
