Wolves of the Rhine

Hello and welcome back fellow Mitteners. Today I have been busying myself with those troublesome Wolf heads again. A good idea came to me while I sat there filing away the access flash on these bad boys. I will give them different styles of shields, some Auxiliary and others from the Legionary camps. This will make them look more ad hoc and specialist and hopefully more elite. They are old, tough veterans from a list of bloody campaigns and skirmishes as long as your arm and their personalized equipment should show this.
These wolves cut their teeth on the huge Barbarians that stalk the dark forests along the mighty Rhine river, they should have no trouble crunching up the youths of Tullus's Spanish army. We shall see....

Looking good. Particularly like the way you are developing distinct and personalised barbarian armies, it seems that so often it is the roman versus the amphorous horde and only the one has advantage of personalised identification with their troops.

I'm still stuck flying over the pacific, but winter has struck here (or, what passes for winter in Australia) which usually heralds a return to miniatures...

AAArrrrr Pleader good to have you back with us,flying in formation. I thought we'd lost you back there to all those zeros. Mind you, I beat you're a bit of an ace by now. I had an actual battle on the week end as part of the Campaign, when I get time i'll write it up. Take care, simon.

Mr Mitten, I understand you have been visiting the sacred groves of The Kingswood. The spirits told me of your troubling treks and demand the appropriate sacrifices be made or they'll send round a demonic manifestation by the name of BEMZEW to put a curse on your camera!!! Nice work as always by the way....no footprints in the snow..very professional. With you in spirit.

Hello Stupot, It's always good to hear from you over in Dacia. I haven't had time to put up a post in months and my painted figures and drawings are stacking up here. Hopefully at the weekend I will make the plunge and have a catch up.
By the way that name still haunts me and I'm surprised to see it again in type.
