Velites

Ya he terminado las dos primeras bases para el proyecto de Magnesia: dos unidades de vélites.

I've finished the first two bases for Magnesia project: two velites units.



Aunque el color blanco me resulta difícil de pintar, es un color que siempre me ha gustado para una legión republicana, especialmente desde que vi una ilustración en un libro de Osprey. En Magnesia participaron cuatro legiones, dos consulares y dos de aliados. Yo pintaré las legiones consulares en blanco y las aliadas en... probablemente rojo.

Although white a difficult to paint for me, is a color that I've always liked for a republican legion, especially since I saw a picture in an Osprey´s book. Four took legions took part at Magnesia, two consular and two allied. I´ll paint the consular legions in white and the allied ones... probably in red.





Esta vez le he dedicado un poco más de tiempo a la base, ya que son hostigadores y se va a ver mucho suelo.
--------------------------------------------
This ocasion I have spent a little more time with the base, because they are skirmishers and a lot of ground will be see.


La siguiente unidad en la línea de pintado será una peana de hastati, pero también voy a ir cambiando la base a unidades que ya están pintadas, empezando por los arqueros cretenses (pintaré unos poquitos más).
--------------------------------------------
 The next unit in paint line will be a stand of hastati, but I also will start changing bases of units that are already painted, starting with Cretan archers (and also paint a few more).


Nos vemos!
