Finished the Triari!

I have finished my first batch of Etruscans and what lovely figures they are to!
They took a while to paint and as you can see I eventually went for the more colourful red and white plumage, which I am glad I did.

These boys are the start of my Republican Roman WAB army and will represent the Triari of the Italian allied legion. Not sure what size to make the unit as I haven't played with the manipular rules yet. I was aiming for 15 but now I am thinking of down sizing to 12 so I can have more units to get the right checkerboard look. After a few games I may well change it if I lose ;0)

I am toying with the idea of making some terrain tiles and what the above figures are standing on is a test piece.
I am happy with the earth colour but not to sure whether to paint grass or glue on static grass? 

Now on to Aventine miniatures to order a few more!!
