And next off the 'painting' desk are these Romans:
I put painting in the sentence above between quotes as all I did to these figures was dip and base them. I bought them off eBay (no idea anymore as to who I bought them from) and they were already base painted. So one bath in the dip and some basing later, here they are. I did quickly paint on the very basic shield designs. The letters on them are V and B, being the fifth (actually the fourth in the collection, but who's counting :) ) cohort of Bartholomeus Sinister Grassus' legions.
