Below are four Illyrian spearmen, painted for Relic Miniatures, representing the rank and file infantrymen of that culture. Illyrians were famed for being fierce warriors, and they served frequently in the armies of foreign powers in the region. Their homeland eventually became a Roman province, but they fought at least one significant war of revolt against Rome.
The figures were a joy to paint, as the castings are extremely crisp and the poses are pleasantly dynamic. I've painted the shield designs freehand rather than turning to transfers, a time consuming but very rewarding process!
