A Late Roman photo shoot

By smacdowall, Aug 7 2020 05:29PM

It has been years since my 28 mil Later Imperial Romans came out to play (I also have them in 15 and 6 mil!).

They came out a couple of days ago for an unusual reason. That was a request for some photos to illustrate a Roman civil war article for Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy magazine.

And here they are:

The figures are a mix of Wargames Foundry, Essex, Minifigs, Hinchliffe and a few others. Many or most have been through a few conversions.

I think it is about time they came out to play once again!

Simon they may be old but still a magnificent looking army and I really like the Romans in shield wall formation they are just awesome. When does the article come out in WSS ?
best wishes

My least favourite era of wargame figure sculpting fashion but the painting rescues them!

Beautiful collection! Makes me want to break out Comitatus (which we will do when my rebasing project is finally complete ...)

Thanks Ross, I like the Wargames Foundry figures but do have issues with Essex. Actually some of the old Minifigs are not that bad. Some are ones I ingerited from you!
