Romano-British Warriors



The basic Romano-British army for Dux Britanniarum requires two units of six warriors, and they are the latest to roll off my (fairly slow) assembly line. The Figures are all Gripping Beast, mounted on 20mm bases in movement trays from Warbases. I'm enjoying painting the Arthurians, especially since I'm going to get good value out of them, what with Dux Britanniarum, Dux Bellorum and Saga.

The other good news is that my birthday largesse arrived from War and Peace Games yesterday, courtesy of my brother and mother in law. Here's the haul:
I'm looking forward to painting up the Bolt Action Churchill, but ideally I'd like to load it up with stowage. Photos of Churchills from 1944-5 often show them looking like mobile junk shops. Anyone know who makes good stowage items for British armour in 28mm?

  3. Ditto above - great work! Sorry, no idea about stowage, how about careful stratch building, tarps and ammo boxes should be (fairly) straight forward ;)

  4. Happy birthday from another Virgo-an!

    Those free-hand painted shields are top-notch! I'm struggling along with my 1/72nd and they are a cow to paint free-hand.

  7. Looks very cool. Basing and shields are top notch. Two questions - where did you get the white tufty stuff for the bases, and is there any chance of some sprue pics when you open up those knights?

    1. The flowers on the base are Meadow Flowers from Army Painter - you get half white and half yellow in the pack. No problem with the sprue pics - I'll try to put them up tomorrow.
