Kneeling legionaries and a watchtower

I have made a bit of progress with the next centuria, and resurrected a project I started a couple of years ago.

I hope to have the centuria finished by the end of the Easter weekend … but wait to see, as I have a tonne of other (domestic) things to do too.

Work in progress: The front rank. I have based these figures first since applying the Sandy Paste is going to be tricky.

Work in progress: The rear rank waits patiently.

Work in progress: The beginnings of a little watch tower. This will be a scenic piece, perhaps with a signalling beacon.


  1. I like the watchtower; is that Wills plastic paving?

    I am also painting ranks of legionaries this weekend.

  2. Thank you Simon. It‘s Slaters Plastikard large stone courses …

  3. Nice looking watchtower, and the first picture is really impressive, love your Romans!

  4. Thanks Phil. I got the idea for the overall look from Masada, the 1981 TV mini-series. If you don’t know it, it’s well worth watching - full of interesting detail …
