Painting Update - Romans, Dieselpunk

It's been a quiet month here on the blog. I haven't played any games and have been working on a couple small (literally) projects here and there. 

Hopefully things will pick up again soon. 

In the meantime, here's a update on what I've painted.

Strength & Honour, the new set of Ancients rules from Reisswitz Press and TooFatLardies, was released on Monday. I wanted to have at least my Romans done by then, so I finished the rest of the starter set I purchased at Historicon last year. 

Last year I wrote a blog article detailing my process to paint 2mm miniatures. Each base was quick to finish; I could usually complete one or two a day. 

The Roman forces I have so far consist of six Roman legions, two units of skirmishers, and a commander. Plenty to play a game with, but I'd like to have more options for variety's sake. The rulebook has a scenario for the Battle of Chaeronea, in the first Mithridatic War, which would be perfect for my Pontic starter army to expand with as well. 

For fun, I started a 6mm dieselpunk project. It's been an idea I've kept in the back of my head for a while now, and I wanted to throw some support to Microworld Minis and their great Stahlritter tanks.  

I can see these being use alongside Baccus' WW1 range, as I'm picturing a conflict with technology equivalent to early WW2 Europe, or even a WW1-esque setting without trenches.
