The army of Baldinus the Usurper

While the last post did n't attract much in the way of comment, ever the optimist, I thought that I'd post some pictures of the other half of my late C4th Roman collection. With the exception of the Huns, painted by Matt, and one minor command group which I painted, they were all painted for me by Andy Dumelow.
The figures are all from the Foundry ranges sculpted by the Perrys ~
Baldinus' army takes the field















Baldinus greets his generals



















Auxilia and a bolt thrower
















Warband or more Auxilia










Heavy Archers














Albinus commands the cavalry arm













Hun Allies, Heavy cavalry on the left, Light Cavalry on the right


















I shall certainly be adding to my collection for this game as I enjoy Neil Thomas' rules from his Two Hour Wargames stable. We have used both the Classical stats and those for the Dark Ages in our games and enjoyed both types very much. I am prepared to accept the level of abstraction he works into them for the ease of play and the way games flow to a conclusion, often suddenly.
