Samnite and Apulian Javelinmen










Here are some Samnite and Apulian javelinmen that I've just finished painting. While they're only two skirmisher units for my Samnite army, they took a fair while to do as there's quite a bit of work in the tunic and shield designs. They are all Crusader Miniatures figures.

It's been very quiet on the gaming front lately but I have managed four games of Battle Ravens this month and received in the mail yesterday reinforcements with my Norman and Welsh armies. I'm looking forward to trying these out and some of the other optional rules with varied deployment, reserves, today the sheep fend for themselves and dice variants - Valhalla Dice and Thor's Dice. It's a really great game, it only takes about an hour to play and I think I've already got my money's worth!

    1. Thanks Dean, there are some really nice designs illustrated by Ian Heath in the AMPW book but they're tricky to do.
