Still waiting for Royal Mail to deliver my interchangeable label making kit so can’t do the basing yet.  In the meantime this is how I paint Auxiliary infantry.  I decided on an 8 cohort layout:

Then the main colour.  This is the brightest blue I’ve got.  As before, slop it on and cover everything.

Flesh drybrush with a narrower brush to target legs on all sides, faces across the top and arms on the right side of each block.

Armour.  Heavy drybrush mostly focusing on the top.

Shields – a thick line across the front and dabs along the left hand side.

Finally the raw umber wash to shade and help combine the look.

That is very neat, I had no idea 3d print files for this scale were available. Had a look and it’s tempting, for that price you can’t go wrong. Thanks for sharing.

2mm? You mad man! I’m assuming they’re all still on their scaffold? I’m quite interested to see what this looks like on a table, or at least table ready.
