Painted Imperial Roman Unit 'E'

Another of my big 24 man units.  This is another hold over from previous army with some newer guys in the front rank.
I think the unit turned out well.
Good view of what I'm doing with the movement tray, adding just a little more real estate to the front of the tray. 
The Optio borrows a head from the Praetorians.

There you have it more to come, yes there are more still to come, not done yet.....

Imperial Roman Veteran Unit 'C' Painted...

Like the previous unit this another of the big units, 24 strong.  Really having a ball with the movement trays as well.  This is one of the Veteran units.
You can see their arm is a bit heavier than the normal units.

There is the stabby view of death coming for the barbarians.
I ran out of red or miscounted, not sure, but two in the back are in white.  No big deal.

A really good close up of the boys.....
And still more Romans to come.....

Imperial Roman Unit 'A' Painted

This is a fairly good sized unit that field a number of hold over models from my older army.  I replaced the entire front rank with new models, in order to give it more dynamic look
Again the movement tray continues some of the storytelling with casualties.
24 strong makes for a big unit.

I used a Praetorian model head for the Optio in the back.  Another hold over from my old army.

Good side view from above.
Much more to come.  Please comment and let me know what you think of the Roman project thus far.

Roman Medicus hard at work

 This is one of those pieces that I just had to have.  It'll likely just act as a terrain piece, but it was too cool to pass up on. 

All Warlord Games' metal figures. 
It may be the best piece in their entire line of Romans.

THAT looks painful.

Stay tuned.....still more coming on the Roman project.

Early Imperial Roman Artillery - Onager #2 Painted


Again these onagers are 25mm RAFM miniatures with Warlord Games plastic Romans as crew members.
A couple of the arm gestures are left over plastic arms from their plastic scorpion kit.
The guy holding the stone is a conversion where I actually sculpted a hand on him.

As always much more to follow.......
