Ballista as a germanic/goth type in Roman service (from the Harry Sidebottom books). This was Simon Miller and Phil Hendry's fantastic give away figure from their epic game at Partizan. The figure is available from Aventine miniatures. Now on a command base for " To the strongest"' I have a large 3rd Century game planed with Ken Pearce on Thursday. Looking forward to getting the troops on the table, however my small collection will be lost in amongst all Ken's stuff.

The 3rd century Roman army so far

I have promised myself this collection for a long time. The "A and A Miniatures" captured my imagination a long time ago. The lead has sat in a box for a long time and this weekend I decided to do something about it. Wonderful figures for a fascinating period. I'll work on a basic impetus type army to start with but this can also be used for "To the Strongest" on 150mm grids.
Shields are LBM transfers.

3rd Century Romans ...again

These 3rd century Romans from "A and A Miniatures" have been on the work bench for a few years. Shields are LBM transfers. I got home from work tonight and decided that it was time to finish them. Not my best painting but they will do.  Crazy thing is...I now feel like a second unit is required as they look lonely now.

The unit is on 60mm by 50mm and 30mm by 50mm bases. This allows me to play with the unit (split into two) on 150mm and 200mm grids, using the "To the Strongest" rules. Figures are mostly Foundry with a couple of Warlord heads.
