Another batch of models sent off to Curt, and displayed for the requisite time. These are the first of my medium cavalry for the EIR. This Auxiliary, the Alae I Thracum, will support the Legio II Augusta along with the Numidian light horse I finished earlier this year.

Yet another entry into the painting challenge. I grouped two batches together to the burden on Curt. These are the Cohors V Gallorum, one of the many Auxiliary Cohorts in Britannia. These guys are pretty much the same as the last two cohorts except that they have green shields instead of yellow or white. Very creative.

My first entry has been submitted to Curt. It has now been up on his blog for the mandatory 24 hours so I can post it here. The Challenge has bonus rounds every two weeks. The first round was for non-combatants. Claudia was my entry.

My terrain collection is not as complete as I would like it to be. I'm short nearly everything man made. This isn't helped by the fact that I dabble in Sci/Fi, Fantasy, several historical periods and two scales (28mm and 15mm). I recently took steps to remedy part of this deficiency. These three pieces came in the mail today; a very pleasant early Christmas present from Croatia.

Another unit done for the EIR Romans. I completed these guys two weeks ago but couldn't muster the energy to post them. I have some painting done for the challenge, but that has to post on Curt's blog first. I took pictures of these guys at the same time as the challenge figures, so here they are.
