This is a period I never ventured into.
When I was young it had to be camouflage and olive drab then the blue and the grey.I couldn't stand plumes and yellow facings but eventually the Napoleonics took over. Scantily clad warriors were also hard to accept but Late Romans and Goths took my fancy

So here they are

Welcome to the wonderful world of the ancient period.

I started with ancients back in the 70's, moved away into other periods before going back into ancients again. Since then I have ventured into many other periods and I'm due to back into ancients yet again. In fact I have never really stopped playing them.

Nicely done! But wouldn't it be easier to prime the figures before basing?
Not quarreling with the results, you understand.

You have opened a gigantic can of worms! Enjoy!

Nice! The great thing about Ancients, is that those barbarians can be used almost anywhere!

Rob I do sometimes prime them before but they need retouching after the yellow drybrushing
So especially if in close order yes its better to prime before

Enjoy. Ancients were my first foray into historical miniatures. DBA armies (if you can call 12 bases an army) just kept getting bigger and bigger. Reading DBA army lists I have to say that their are dozens of ancients that I never heard of.
