    I had a giftcard from a rebate for a tire purchase and was looking for something new to try out. I remembered playing Triumph a few years back at a Fall In! so decided to give it a shot. These are 15mm Polybian Romans. The casting on the pilum left a lot to be desired so I decided to give them my “Warmaster High Elf” treatment and convert them up. The hafts are brass tube with a small pin tip glued into them. I them added a block of plasticard as the weight and shaped it with a knife.

    The rest were pretty much stock, except for some spear and javelin swaps on the Triarii and Velites. I just need to finish building the cavalry then it’s on to painting.

    That’s impressive conversation work on 15mm figures, do you not worry about spiking yourself on those pins when manoeuvring them around the table?

    They look to be very nice sculpts which always makes the task of painting easier and, sometimes, a pleasure.

    Fossilizing nicely.

    I started off my Polybian Romans with not painting any Romans at all, but Cretan Archers. I’ll be using these as skirmishers. These are closer to true 15mm than the Romans (more 18mm). I’m telling myself that the Romans were just better fed.

    Evil Dave:

    Lovely minis, great skill at modifying the minis and very nice paint jobs on the Cretan archers. Well done, sir! Keep at it and show us more as you get things done.

    Cheers and good gaming.

    I’ve been working on the Velites these past few weeks. Most of the colors have their basecoat down and I’m halfway through painting the red.

    I finished up the Velites tonight, the line infantry also has their basecoat of red down as well. I have a small local con coming up where I volunteered to run some Warmaster games so I’m going to take a break from these for a bit to finish up some 10mm terrain. Hopefully I’ll be back to painting them in September.
