Pontic slave skirmishers

Digging though my lead pile the other night looking for some suitable figures for my entries into the "Wargaming Australis"  'Aftermath' a came across these figs which I started some time last year, so I dug them out, based them and painted on a simple cloth uniform, and added some mixed shields and javelins all in one night!



 I wanted them to depict the freed slaves from  any of the former roman cities when Mithridates freed the slaves who had killed their roman masters when he invaded Anatolia.






The figures are mixed Gripping Beast and a single Foundry.

cheers
