Magnificent beasts …

… that’s beasts … b e a s t s … 

This can only mean one thing: my scale rope is on its way, after ordering it almost a year ago!

Work in progress: North Star’s awesome oxen with scratch harnesses and
Wange yolks.

At last … progress

I had a bit of free time over the last couple of days which allowed me to get to work on preparing another century of legionaries.

When Warlord Games released the plastic scorpion battery with kneeling figures I had visions of kneeling legionaries armed with pila preparing to receive an assault. Followers of this little saga may remember that I used one of the kneeling figures from the scorpion battery in my medicus vignette. In due course Warlord released a set of metal figures in the required pose, and I have combined these with some of the plastic figures for the new unit.

Work in progress: The kneeling figures come with gladius, sling or pilum, but there were not enough of the latter so some major surgery was required to provide arms in the correct attitude. Pila are from the plastic legionary sets.

Work in progress: The century as I plan to base it. There is still some filling to be done … I think they will look pretty good when finished.
