Caesarean Roman Project I



I wrote this article about my Caesarean roman project for Warlord Games a few days ago. It's the second one in a series showing how I'm collecting and painting (and maybe even gaming) my Caesarean Roman army. In this one I'm talking about doing some conversions on those plastic figures. Right now I'm about to finish a second 24 men strong unit, and some more stuff has been started.

Because I wrote the article for them I'm leaving here the link and a couple of pictures. There are plenty more on the article.

Love those! The unit has a very different look with all the hand-painted shields. Very animated!

Thank you Simon. I don't know if I will manage to paint the same quantity you usually do, but I'm trying. My initial plan is 3x24 men units, a scorpion for each legionaries unit, a cavalry group (I don't know yet if Romans, Gauls, Iberians, Numidians or Germans), and a command base.

Cheers.

Andrés.

Gallic cavalry would be most I'd say. I'll look forward to seeing them!

Yay! I started following your blog after seeing your great 15mm "Crusties", and I was worried something had happened to you. These are amazing, no to mention that you're painting an insane number at a high standard which always blows me away...

"I decided to change some things to speed up the painting process without losing much detail, visually speaking. I’m not painting the eyes on the miniatures, for example."

This is a good tip...

Thanks Allison. Nothing happened to me, thank God!! It's just I'm very busy at work and with family things. I manage to paint a bit for me at home, and that's always the reason for me to look for fast but effective ways to paint, even if I have to sacrifice a bit of detail. Thank you for your very kind words. Your work is very good and inspiring, I really loved what you did with the Helldiver on theropod.

Cheers.

Yes it's amazing how much time "work and family things" take up, lol. I hear ya. I recently finished a relatively quality paint-up of a 10-figure 15mm SF unit, and it was soooo much work. An educational and challenging exercise for sure, but I think I'll generally stick to smaller projects. And goofier ones; glad you like my dino rider :)

Merry Christmas!
