An update! I've been working on my Kings Lifeguard foot regiment for rather a long time, and following a coat of matt varnish they are joined by my saker battery in being finally finished! I even found a picture on the PC of when I started painting the red in 2009, so this is definately a landmark occasion.
They were being done while I awaited the arrival of the next part of my roman army, and so there may be a fair gap until the next one is finished. Torn between trying a horse regiment or another foot one. No interest artillery left to do sadly.
