Painting Update - Arena Rex, FIW

Let's see what's on the painting table this week!

I finally finished with all of the Ludus Magnus figures for Arena Rex. Viatrix, on the left, is the other leading lady for the faction. She's a counterpart to Lupa's bare ferocity, taunting opponents to keep their attention on her. This can be useful if pared up with other faction models like Otho or Iason.

On the right is Septimus, another decent Favor generator with good damage and push results. And in the middle is Nero, Ludus Magnus' mount, Titan, and beast all rolled into one very angry package. With two stages, the massive bull is going to stick around for a while, and can both put out high damage and rearrange enemy placement in the arena. He can be ridden by Septimus, turning the pair into a very dangerous duo.

I also finished the British Wilderness Force for Muskets & Tomahawks. Half of the force is made up of Rangers, the green-coated light infantry force made famous by Major Robert Rogers.

The other half of the force consists of British-allied Indians and Colonial Militia. 

While this is a small force in Mustkets & Tomahawks (a little over 200 points, or half a regular game) these miniatures can also be used with the Song of Drums and Tomahawks rules, and provide plenty of options.
