My Roman Bannermen

I do like to have a variety of Signifiers, and this group gives me some of that variety.  Most of them are Foundry models and conversions.


Below you see a couple of the Foundry models.  I just think they are so cool.

One of my conversions below.

Another of my conversions below.


The guy below is a Foundry model.

He has a very cool pose.  I still need to put together a few shields.
More still to come.

Pictures of the Painted Roman Unit 'K'

Finally last of the Warlord Games Units.  Next posting will have some of the character models.

This is another very large unit.
You can see I have an Optio in the back rank.
More of those converted models with the shields.  I really like how they give the unit a more dynamic look.

Poor guy in front of the unit has lost an appendage.  That model is actually a conversion of Warlord Games metal Republican Romans.  I removed the metal head and put a plastic head on him.
Up next some characters and banners.

Another of my Huge Painted Veteran Roman Units

This is one of the bigger units that I have finished up.  The vets just look cool.
You can see one of my character models, second guy on the right front rank.  That model is actually a Wargames Foundry model from the previous army.  The scale of the Foundry models does work with the Warlord Games Plastics.

Still keeping the scheme and theme on the movement trays going.




I also have the Eagle in this unit.
More still to come on the Roman path.

Pictures of Painted Roman Unit F

One more for the end of the Year.  This is Unit F, a bit different scheme with this unit on the shields.
You'll notice a number of subtle conversions  in the second rank raising their shields.  That pose modification for the Warlord models is very easy to accomplish.
It really makes the unit look a bit more dynamic.


Backside of the unit.  Happy with how this one turned out.

Another couple of angles to give you an idea of the movement within the unit.

Much more to follow.....

Painted Roman Veterans Unit...You may remember this one

 

If you have been a follower of my work for awhile, you may remember these.  They were the cause for me to redo my Roman army.  I did this unit up after having brain surgery back around 2015 and they were featured on the Warlord Games site for awhile with my write up on the conversions and what not.
Well I rebased them to fit with the current scheme.
Again another big unit. 
Quite a few conversions in the unit and a use of some of their metal arms as well.


Still telling the story with the barbarians on the tray.
Get your popcorn, we are just getting warmed up.
