Some more Aventine EIR Legionaries....

...newest infantry unit painted last weekend for my EIR army.


 
For a bit of variety I missed in a few oval shields, I think it works. I love these later figures in Spangenhelm helmet. Bases and movement tray from Warbases, shield transfers from LBM. Figures are on a 60mm frontage x 30mm depth base, 4 figures on each. I like this arrangement for these figures.

Hi. They are not based for any particular system they a in 4's on a 60mm front and 30mm depth. I think they are suited to that because the shields lock together well.

Ok, thanks. Nice paint job. Im starting to paint some greeks, but have never played any of the ancient games, and didnt know the best way to base them. I liked yours. Do you play with any specific rules?

Years gone by I played a lot of 7th ed WRG. Later I picked up Warhammer ancients, and then lately Hail Caesar, but I hardly game at all now, I am more of a collector and painter.

I played battle tech years ago. Then advanced squad leader wirh figs. Later someone introduced me to WFB, built a small army or two. Never play much, but enjoy painting and ranking them up. Read a copy of warhammer ancient, didnt like 5 across and 4 dep, didn't seem right for a phalanx. Started the greeks, and have a 15 yr old who wnants to play now but not sure of good simple rules to start him on. Wfb and the likes are ok, but the figs cost so much. Thanks for the info and if you have any suggestions fel free to drop them.
