Primed for painting

At last here is some pictures of the start of my armies i say that because im having to build two armies so we can have roman civil war battles between friends who both are new to WAB so this will be a interesting period to game.
On a good note ive managed to acquire a mounted general  from Aventine already painted off evil bay so hope to have it soon slowly all coming together still a lot of painting to do and ive decided ill be using simple painting system of base colour and dipping using Army painters strong tone
i saw on Model Roman Army blog simple but tasteful and good on the eye hopefully i will speed things up also.
sorry about the pictures mobile phone camera isn't that good
