Lovely work Ethan and welcome aboard.
I enjoyed the nice little bit of history you offered, it helps place the figures into context and it takes me back to my beloved Classical History classes that I took in university.
I've always liked the look of Republican Roman troops, with their curved shields, chain armour and long-plumed helmets - your painting really do the figures justice. Speaking of which, what are the make of these castings? Old Glory?
These are two wonderful looking units, with a suitably taciturn proconsul to keep them in order. 205 points will place you in the top 10, for now. :) Well done, Ethan!
