Hi Agis

I have send you a private message in german..
My english is to bad to explain it.
I am only the man with the ideas and I have the luck, to work together with one of in my eyes best sculptor of fantasy miniatures, Andrea Tarabella, who work normally for ragging heroes.

Praetorian with face mask

I think it all looks great! I assume some of them will be posed more dynamically at a later stage, which would improve the gladiator, especially. Also nice with some cheesecake, for those who enjoy that.

If I may criticise one thing, it would be the position of this mask in relation to the rest of the helmet. I feel like it might as well be a stoic face right now. If the mask was further out, almost in line with the side plates, it may look more like a mask. Just my 2c, though.
Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: Gallahad on January 24, 2019, 10:43:45 PM
Hopefully these get produced in some form. I really like them. I'd like to see them showing a bit more leg (Archer in particular). Short tunics and bare thights is just very Roman looking to me.

I echo the hope that they are posed dynamically.

Do you know the costs of such an ammount of injection moulds?  :)
I am only a normal tabletop and miniature fan  ;), no company...
The cost for sculpting  is ca 500 Euro per normal infantry miniature....
Added will be costs af printing, mould making, casting etc...

Not shure if I can release all the miniatures....

Those are stunning.
Well done.
My only observation,
I would research Roman mythology and perhaps use these to create your Ďbeastsí
Whilst a very nice model, the bolt thrower mounted on the monster looks out of place? Almost Games Workshop style?
I think giant Wolves may have worked better? For example.
Also a war elephant of sorts may look cool. They were used in the arena and even came as far as Britain in the invasion.
Just enough historical bias, to go a bit crazy!

I would definitely buy into this collection, even in Resin!
It is marvellous.
Thank you.

Post by: Groeldor on May 11, 2019, 04:19:46 PM
Hi VonMoltke,

You should have a look into patreon, or maybe even kickstarter. It might be worth a look. People are easily able to print miniatures nowadays, so you could probably hit enough potential customer easily that way, and be paid a fair price for your work.
Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: VonMoltke on May 11, 2019, 06:12:49 PM
Thank you all, very good ideas.
I will think about.
Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: gibby64 on May 12, 2019, 12:22:49 PM
get some resin painted up and do a kickstarter. That should fund the mold cost for plastic. These would do really well on there. I'd back them! Resin too.

Perhaps give the Nubian the option of a Corinthian helmet?
Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: Duff on May 15, 2019, 07:06:04 PM
That's a fantasy Zulu, not a Nubian unfortunately. I agree with the comments about the monster, doesn't look right for a fantasy version of a historical army. A fantasy version of a real world animal would fit much better, or just a cool ballista without the mount. Also the SJW in me is smarting a bit at the rather old fashioned depiction of women.

Even with those niggles though, I really like your work and overall take on the idea. I'd definitely be interested in buying some, especially the character pieces. They would fit very nicely into my Gloranthan collection.

New pilum pose.
The forearms of the legionaries are ball joint connections, so you can do different angles. Additional there are two shield and weapon arm basic angles, so that there are some additional possibilities. The standard weapon poses have also a ball joint connection system for the hands, so it allow turning also of the the hands.
Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: Condottiere on June 06, 2019, 02:52:21 PM
Are these 28mm or 32mm and gaunt or chunky heroic sized? Nowhere is it mentioned about proportions...

Why a preference for grimacing faces? The expression screams painful bowel movement... lol

I think a quadruped would be better for porting a ballista than a knuckle walker.

I don't care about SJWs and I know it's fantasy, but do the women have to look like extras from Gladiator Eroticus?  ;)

I think the multi pose arms are a good idea.

To the subject scale.
There are enough 28/30 mm mm romans like Victrix and Aventine miniatures ;-)
I am an old man, and I like to paint bigger miniatures.
They are in the GW stormcast eternal scale, what allowed much more details and the balljoint arm variants.
So all in all more 38 mm feet to eye level.
They can also be used as 40 mm for someone who likes this scale...

Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: Condottiere on June 06, 2019, 06:23:01 PM
I stand corrected  lol

First time Iíve seen that historical pose!
It's not the best representation of Arrian's contra Alan formation, but it gets the point across, though I think it'd look better with oval scuta.

Roman pikeman and spearman (https://www.romanarmytalk.com/rat/showthread.php?tid=18905)

Arrian's Array against the Alans (http://members.tripod.com/~S_van_Dorst/Ancient_Warfare/Rome/Sources/ektaxis.html#T6)

Quote
And the front four ranks of the formation must be of spearmen, whose spearpoints end in thin iron shanks. And the foremost of them should hold them at the ready, in order that when the enemies near them, they can thrust the ironpoints of the spears at the breast of the horses in particular. Those standing in second, third an fourth rank of the formation must hold their spears ready for thrusting if possible, wounding the horses and killing the horsemen and put the rider out of action with the spear stuck in their heavy body armour and the iron point bent because of the softness.

The legionary battle line (http://members.tripod.com/~S_van_Dorst/Ancient_Warfare/Rome/Sources/ektaxis.html#C6)

Quote
The kontos described here appears to be the pilum, the classic heavy javelin of the legionary heavy infantry with its bendable iron shank, rather than the two handed cavalry spear used by the heavy cavalry contarii. A generally applied Greek vocabulary for translation of Latin terminology does not seem to have been adopted despite centuries of contact with the Roman army. The word hyssos was used by several Greek authors, most notably Polybius, as the Greek term for pilum, while Flavius Josephus employed the word xyston. The use of the pilum as a stabbing weapon rather than a javelin is not unique: Caesarís legionaries had done the same during the siege of Alesia according to the De bello Gallico. The description of the main battle formation lacks some details that could shed light on the exact dispositions of the subunits.

Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: Agis on June 30, 2019, 11:57:05 AM
VonMoltke was kind enough to send my some samples and I was blown away by the sheer quality of the miniatures.
The minis are big chunky multipart resin that are full of character and conversion options, different heads weapon options etc. I chose amore traditional outfit for my 1st mini, gladius and shield plus helmet.
The base is a GW 32 mm base since the mini is REALLY BIG. You can see a comparison picture further down. To enhance the base I used some Milliput and the nice Rolling Pin ROMAN. Great effect!
(http://www.adpublishing.de/Roman_1.jpg)

The mini was based in Citadel Chaos black. After that some Citadel Ironbreaker for all the metal parts, Nuln Oil shade, again some Ironbreaker - done. Mephistion Red for the tunic and shield. Carroburg Crimson Shade and again some Red for some highlights. Skin is AV 72.100 Rosy Flesh, a Citadel Reikland Fleshshade, and again Rosy Skin with mixed in white for the flesh highlights. The gold is done all with citadel colours, Gehenna Gold, Agrax earthshade, again Gehenna Gold and finally some Auric gold with mixed in silver. All brown parts are AV Burnt Umber and AV flat earth highlights.

The mini is NOT fitting to any historical Roman range that I know of since the mini is around 42 mm high! See the comparison picture below. Even a Primaris Marine is dwarfed! IMO no problem since the mini line is obviously not aiming at any established setting or genre.

Courtesy of VonMoltke I also had the privilege of getting a few sample figures. I can only second Agisí comments. The quality is outstanding!
Iím a less neat painter than Agis so my version looks a bit more grimy and battle worn:

The details and graphic-ness of the models look fantastic, but they just look like shop mannequins rather than fighters. Since they're resin there are no limitations for drafting or posing. Since they're heroic scaled, I think they need poses that are more heroic too.
Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: McYellowbelly on July 13, 2019, 12:31:31 PM
Gratefully received a couple of these lovely models to paint.
Echo previous comments, big,chunky and lots of details.
A few lines where the layers show, but nothing drastic.
As everyone knows, all Romans wear red.....so i've done the same!

Resin.  :?  That's no good for mass production. How long does it take to pour 24 resin Romans?

Why not metal?
Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: Belgian on July 13, 2019, 06:12:30 PM
Think hard-plastic production is becoming more affordable if you would go for half sprues instead of full sprues. Think the people behind Wargames Atlantic and RGD Gaming have gone that route with small sprues but a larger amount of these per boxed set. Might be worth contacting them as producing these in hard-plastic will increase affordability and as the digital sculpts are already available, the only cost would be the actual tooling and production. You could maybe license the sculptures to another company for actual production. Just some ideas but really like the look of these!

I'm sure the size\scale is mentioned in the thread, but I missed it.  Would they "fit" with Crocodile Games Wargods range?

Are they for sale anywhere yet?
Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: Sir Barnaby Hammond-Rye on July 16, 2019, 01:43:52 AM
I don't think the Croc stuff is large enough - except maybe the Demigods.

The Croc stuff is slightly generous 28mm.
Title: Re: Fantasy romans
Post by: VonMoltke on July 16, 2019, 08:02:57 AM
Sir Barnaby Hammond-Rye is correct.
My decision for the scale was based on the thinking, that there are enough 28-30 miniatures ranges.
The victrix and Aventine Miniatures are fantastic miniatures for historical tabletop. It looks like my fantasy roman range is for most people in a to big scale. But as I say it before, in normal scales there are enough miniatures.
They are in scale like the newer stormcast eternals, and I use them for age of sigmar games.
And yes, for me old man bigger miniatures are easier to paint ;-)

To the subject sale.
May be it will be a good idea to sell the files for people who has 3D printers, so that they can print as many miniatures as they like, in a scale they like. Also it is possible to make moulds from the prints for metal or resin casting.
I am not shure if there are people which are interested in such an offer.

@ SP ....our deal will still remain ;-)

Execuse my bad english.

The Wargods Artemis figure is quite big boned, IMO, and might also go nicely with this range. I find the figure too large for the Wargods range itself.

The newest additions for the range are:

Is the "militia" figure the veteran? Or a different figure? Are there pics of the other two?

Nice!  :-*

I've also decided to try large scale, but I've jumped up to 60mm Expeditionary Force Toy Soldiers (and similar).  :)

To the subject sale.
May be it will be a good idea to sell the files for people who has 3D printers, so that they can print as many miniatures as they like, in a scale they like. Also it is possible to make moulds from the prints for metal or resin casting.
I am not shure if there are people which are interested in such an offer.

I would be interested in buying the STL-files for a handfull of those designs! Might even push me into actually unpack my Photon -printer and start printing (finally)!

As it would allow me to drop them down to my chosen scale, I would certainly be interested in STL files.

Last year I started collecting 60mm plastics from Expeditionary Force, and I have found resizing the typical 28mm-32mm figure by 185% works pretty well.

Not my cup of tea at all. But each to their own.
But I will say: The painted lady figure's sword/kopis is backwards.

Excellent design. Fantasy or not I'd be happy to use them for a historical skirmish game. Keep up the good work and best wishes for your project.
