28mm Ancients - BTD Spanish

While two of the gaming group head down to Moscow for a day of Fire and Fury action with the Battle of Gettysburg, I remain in Spokane attending to various tasks.  

A second Impetvs unit of BTD Spanish marched off the painting table.  Like the previous BTD Spanish unit, the crescent shield that came with the figure was replaced with an Aventine round shield.  The Spanish Scutarii will be fielded as an Impetvs FL.

This unit was in my painting queue before Jake quickly produced a number of feudal Christians for the Reconquista.  His rapid deployment forced my hand and the next few units off my painting table will be for the Reconquista project.  On the workbench are two Muslim foot: one with javelins and the other with bows.  

I am also getting an itch to add a unit or two to the 28mm Napoleonic Project as well as a unit of British foot for the 28mm AWI Project.  Enough figures for two regiments of Foundry foot are in inventory.  Having not painted any Foundry figures in many years, I look forward to getting this onto the workbench.

One of the benefits of having so many periods to work on, period stagnation is rarely a problem.


  1. These look great, looking forward to seeing more


    1. More to come but first a detour through the Reconquista!

    1. Yeah, I was not sure what to make of the original crescent shields so out they went.

  3. Love 'em! These fellows will be very tough if they can go into their first round of combat with all of their impetus dice. You've got me I'm itching to paint Iberians in 28mm.

    You're a real timetripper on the painting table!

    1. Thanks, Monty!

      Variety is the spice of life, right?

  4. Splendid! Love the chosen colors, they are looking great on your bases!
