I've had great fun painting up this unit of combined arms Byzantine Skutatoi. I was initially slightly worried about how they would base up but using the 40mm wide by 50mm depth has payed off I think. There's enough space on the bases for the miniatures to work together as a unit maintaining the sculptors vision of the Shieldwall working as one organism.

There are a load more pics from various angles and the usual waffle on my blog here:

Thanks you for the goodly words chaps.

I'm going to see how far I can get into getting the Unarmoured Skutatoi and Command Base this weekend.
