Roman field fortifications

I got rather excited at the inclusion of sudes spikes in the Warlord Games’ Roman Scorpion Battery set. Once I had made some progress with the figures and catapults I set about working out what to do with these useful obstacles.

I have also been making some stone walls, the sort that Roman legionaries may have constructed in the field: stone with rubble infill.

Work in progress: sudes spikes from the Warlord Games’ Roman Scorpion battery set. I could do with lots of these!

Stone walls made from a length of balsa wood, covered with cork chippings cut to look as if an attempt has been made to dress the stones. The top is then filled with small stones of various sizes to represent the rubble infill.
