Progress this weekend on a few bits having laboured through late Romans shields I wanted something super easy……the Czech Legion are just that. They have sat under coated for a while and are now ready for battle.

Czechoslovak Legion and Roman Scorpio
Czechoslovak Legion, fighting mainly for the whites in their formal position, but might be dispersed as a group across the Reds when needed 😀 copplestone castings, one would say easy to paint but not the most inspiring figures in the range.
Nest up rebased and touched up a Roman Scorpio (bolt thrower) not convinced by the shield but it will do for now.
Finally the Roman light cavalry are out of their dettol bath. In fact they have had two baths as the first didn’t quite get all the primer off, the second bath seems to have done the trick.
Another walk out over the holiday weekend, this time visiting the largest stone circle in Cumbria, not so far from where we live.
On the walk there is a small church near the river Eden, they have found a number of carved stones in the river one of them being this carved Anglo-Scandinavian hogs back grave stone. Estimated to be from 10th or 11th century they also have some other Saxon carved stones but this was my favourite.
Back to painting this evening 👍
