Impetus, Punic war Roman Project.

Aventine miniatures,4x 12 foot,2x6 cavalry,2x4 skirmishers,1x command set and all the LBM transfers for the army only £118.Great deal.

The Aventine Figures come with some lovely cast pilum,But having used cast weapons on other armies i found after two or three games you end up with lovely cast barley twists.

Undercoat (Halfords matt black spray) and flesh  (Foundry expert flesh,A,B,C)

Jury is still out on the transfers,even when they are designed for Aventine minatures they still need cutting out,as its near impossible to cut the boss out spot on i would suggest matching your shield colour to the the transfer.

With Punic shields there isn't a metal edge to these shields so the transfer leaves a small ridge,i used black paint to even this out and then painted the shield in the original colour again.

  1. Nice job mate. I'm undecided about the transfers too. STILL got to do some for those Late Romans, but still haven't get round to it. Too many negative comments to make me get off my backside and do something about them.

    Ratty likes'em , but he probably gets;em free the tight git!
