Essex Miniatures 15mm Roman Slingers

Just a small unit for a few points and a bit f help for my Roman fledgling army. I actually have another four bases worth but I am fairly sure I can't use them in the Field of Glory army lists but will see.

Not terrible castings but the swords seem too be way to big, almost broadswords rather than the small ones I would expect for such troops and period.

I also have a bunch of bow armed troops for this army that I have started and hope to get done within the next two weeks but I have a small matter of a few hundred Zulu's in front of them in the queue. 

I had three submissions into the challenge this week with a fourth finished but terrible photo's so held them over for next week. As they could be the only figures finished it's probably just as well. I still have a fair chance of getting the Zulu's finished though so you never know your luck.

  2. Very well done! They'll come in handy to soften up your opponents I think.

    1. In Fields of Glory they tend to do very little really so no major hopes for them. Next up on the desk is the bow support, some of that may leave a mark.
