The weather here is starting to turn from stinking hot and humid to pleasantly variable, which means that it's time to get the cans of spray primer out. My first priority is to fill out my Successor armies and to get some of my recently purchased DBA armies primed and ready to go. Of the DBA armies, Normans and Saxons will be first up, but I have to get my hands on some painting guides or books so that I don't make a complete mess of things...
Anyway, now's a good time to take stock of where I'm at. This is the painting tally for this year so far:
12 Celtiberian scutarii (OG).
4 Carthaginian four-horse chariots, 12 crew (Chariot).
8 Successor elephants, 24 crew, (Chariot) 6 supporting skirmishers (OG).
1 mounted general (OG).
18 Thracian medium cavalry (OG).
18 Illyrian light horse (OG).
12 Tarentine cavalry (Chariot).
This is what's partly finished or on the table:
24 Celtiberians with spear (OG).
18 generic horse archers (OG).
120+ Confederate infantry (Italeri, Esci, Revell, RSM).
There is also a lot of stuff sitting already primed in boxes that I hope to get round to some time, but Lord knows when that will happen...
