MOSTLY finished fog army

Hi, this is my first post, and I really have no idea what I'm doing.
I don't get a lot of time to wargame anymore but I still enjoy painting,
planning the army, and obsessively purchasing the army. All I can usually hope for
is to finish painting the army before some other project steals my limited attention.
Hopefully this blog will help me to focus my limited painting energies, and help me to focus and finish my many projects. The first project is an army for Field of Glory. Early Republican Roman. The figures are 1/72 Zvezda plastic. So far I have finished the infantry.
I have 15 bases Velites, 33 bases of Hastati/Principes, and 8 bases of Triari. All of the minis cost about 30-40$(either 3 or 4 boxes). All in all it was a great way to field an inexpensive
army for FOG. The painting was easy, minimal detail-enhanced with black wash of Future floor wax. The whole army is also mounted on magnetic movement stands.

Now I just have to finish 2 boxes of cavalry and I'm done....
