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.24/06/2022 at 06:23 #175000ian pillayParticipant
That’s impressive conversation work on 15mm figures, do you not worry about spiking yourself on those pins when manoeuvring them around the table?

Worry? No. Expect? Yes.25/06/2022 at 05:55 #175047mark leslieParticipant
They look to be very nice sculpts which always makes the task of painting easier and, sometimes, a pleasure.
Fossilizing nicely.16/07/2022 at 03:19 #175783
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.16/07/2022 at 07:11 #175786Rod RobertsonParticipant
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.16/08/2022 at 02:30 #176949
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.16/08/2022 at 07:59 #176951OBParticipant
Top work there Dave.

Those look good. Thank you for sharing them.21/10/2022 at 03:50 #179298
I think I started these Romans two weeks ago. They take a bit more time and effort than the WW2 Americans, I think it’s the red and metalics. I have their shields yet to do, but I wanted to clear coat them first as the shield covers so much of the figure.05/01/2023 at 18:54 #181891
Back to the Romans! I finsihed up my Triarii this week and also spent some time putting together bases for everything.
Now I have usable units for Triumph! and can use the figures in a skirmish game as well. Next up is the Principes, cavalry and then I need to figure out the shields. I’m looking at some sort of decal at this point.26/01/2023 at 03:24 #182663
I finished up my principes for a game of Triumph! this Saturday. I should be able to get them some bases by then too. I need to start figuring out what I’m going to do for all their shields. I’ll probably track down some design and make decals for them.28/01/2023 at 00:37 #182730
These Roman Extraordinarii kind of came along for the ride as I was working on the Principes. They just needed a bit more work that I completed tonight. I also finished up the bases for them and the Principes too.02/02/2023 at 02:27 #182920
I spent this week cleaning, priming and glueing shields on the Triarii, Principes and Extraordinarii. I also painted up the Triarii’s shields. I glazed one in the recesses to tone down the shading, not sure if I like it yet. Thoughts? I don’t know why I spent so much time on the figures, the shields cover 80% of the detail.09/02/2023 at 01:09 #183196
Work continues on the shields. I finished them for the Principes and Extraordinarii this week. On to the Hastati next.20/02/2023 at 04:17 #183554
The Hastatus shields are done as of tonight. I’ve got four bases of cavalry to do next, then everything needs some top coats and basing.24/02/2023 at 04:54 #183632
The cavalry conversions got finished up this week, and they got primed and based as well.
I also had this Cretan leader type hanging around so I painted him up too. Not sure what he’s going to be used for yet.24/02/2023 at 14:47 #183673Darkest Star GamesParticipant
These look amazing. I couldn’t believe they are 15mm, you have some painting skils!

I’ve been working on the Roman cavalry these past weeks and finished up the Equites (aside for the shields) tonight.16/03/2023 at 09:14 #184260Andrew BeasleyParticipant
You have a sweet set building up there.

Simple – you know what’s under the shields and it would bug you every time you put the figures on the table 🙂18/03/2023 at 09:53 #184307shaun holdsworthParticipant
Evil Dave , what make are the Cretan archers ? not seen them before an they look nice26/03/2023 at 23:49 #184491
Shaun, they’re unreleased Khurasan miniatures. Not sure why they haven’t made it up onto the website yet, but he’ll sell them if you e-mail him.29/03/2023 at 21:21 #184578Phil SherlockParticipant
They are lovely, excellent work.

I finally finished the horses for my 15mm Polybian Roman allied cavalry this week. I still need to do the shields for them, but that’s going to involve a conversion as I don’t have enough of the two types to split them how I like for easy unit identifcation.
