Painting Justinian Byzantine Heavy Infantry Part Three
The long delayed final part of the painting of these beautifully sculpted, excellently cast and highly detailed miniatures is finally here. If fact, it is partly the level of detail on these fine miniatures that have slowed me down a little.
Before I start, there are another five spearmen, a back rank officer in charge of five archers to be completed before the unit can be revealed in all the spectacle and glory that an elite Justinian or Herclian Byzantine unit could expect. I'm half way through the next rank and the officer as I type. Another reason for the relative slowdown has been another nose dive into depression due to a very close friend going missing coming up to six weeks ago. His disappearance has come as a deep shock to us all and especially his family. My heart is still with you brother.
OK, I've taken pictures of both the command group, sans banner at present and one of each of the spearmen models in order to hopefully pass on an image of how they may look when based up.
