15mm Early Imperial Romans (4): Lights and Wacky Things
When all is said every DBA army needs is light troops. Obviously suffering from a bit of a chill by the way in which they are hugging their cloaks here are some slingers:
Camp followers, who at a push could double as a Psilio.
Then there is the odds and sods variants that cover all those little tweaks of campaign history. Archers (nice for shooting horses) and a Warband (divide and conquer amongst the enemy tribes as is the Roman way):
There is also the definitive models which mark the DBA army's technology. For the Roman, for me at least, it is the Scorpion artillery piece:
Then there is the plain "wacky" which makes you wonder 'why' - but you still find yourself drawn to paint it. The "tortoise" .. can I use it as a camp? From the front it is impressive:
From the side, it needs a little more protection :(
Remember I did it because it was there. All in all that is my Early Imperial Roman lot! Whew!!! I don't think I'll ever make it to a DBM or Fields of Glory Army list with the Romans.
