Victrix Italian Allies










Here are three photos of a unit of Victrix Italian Allies I've just finished painting. These took a fair while to do but I'm quite pleased with the end result. I'm really looking forward to the recently released Victrix Carthaginians which I've pre-ordered, but postage down under takes forever, so I'll finish of some Wargames Factory plastic Greek Hoplites I've been working on in the meantime.

    1. Thanks Jonathan, a white undercoat works really well for these figures with the transfers and also saves painting on some of the tunics.

  11. Great looking Italians, Mike! Victrix makes some of the nicest Ancients - and in plastic to boot. The basic shield color ties the unit together, but the individual motifs on them set them apart nicely. IIRC, I believe either Oscans or Samnites used to have their elite troops decked out in white...or something similar.

  12. Thanks Dean, I have a Samnite army still to paint - the linen legion wore all white tunics and silvered armour according to LIvy.

  13. A bit late to the party, and I'm repeating what others have said, but those white shields are ace. Really nice unit.
