Oh boy, what a selection of beauties!! And I don't recognise so many of them, which is good, another reason to buy more stuff :)

Can you please tell me where these on the pic below come from? And who makes the ships and the guards?

btw, I've created a thread for you, feel free to let me know if you wish to change the topic name.

at your service Prof :

the 1st on the left : Warlod from their roman civilians. Small size so i'll give him the role of the jewish merchant.....

the 2 next ones are BTD Spartan or greek elders (don't remember which reference on the 2 they produce).

and the pointing one, in armour is a BTD too (Spartan elder i think).

The last 3 are (from left to right) :

Warlord roman civilians (small but seated so no problem). Looks like a veteran legionary.

Uncommon, it' a Redoubt Priest ! I found him in a the earlt italian range, in the Etruscan no picture ref RR14 sacrificial set. Smaller than the classical Redoubt scale.

One more elder from BTD.

Top service, thank you much! I clearly need these greek civilians. Also I will have a look at the Redoubt range.

What about sheeps and guards?

What about sheeps and guards?

Sheep are Irregular. Not super scultping but cheap !  lol

Sheepard are 2 foundry (adults).

The boy is an Irish Crusader Miniatures from the lone civilian pack of the range !  :'(

The romanised guards are my urban cohorte or ludus guardians. They are BTD sword cloaked auxialiary. With some conversion for the cloak on some references.

I have been reading a lot of John Maddox Roberts' "SPQR" mysteries lately, and the combination of that and these threads has me itching to do some Roman street brawls myself. It is one of those periods where you probably need to spend more time on scenery than figures though.

I really love the selections of figures you have here. Thanks for sharing the sources.
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: nervisfr on February 19, 2014, 02:41:40 PM
that's the goal of this topic and the one of Rumacara  lol  :

Bring you to the dark side of the force ...............of the figurines...  ;)

You have to be aware and feel as converter when you look at a range of figurines. Even if the range is not of the same period you are looking for.

And ask yourself : What can i do with this figurine ? I turn German (half naked) into  Hillbillies (http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=15751) for a western period in this way.

Keep you imagination high and you 'll find a lot of solutions for your work conversion on minis.
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: Aaron on February 19, 2014, 03:37:12 PM
Indeed, and becoming more creative and converting figures is something I have wanted to work on lately. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hello all

Eric, your miniatures look great. Some ideas for me.
I finished cnverting 2 figures from Agema but i havent taken a picture yet.
As soon as possible i will post them.

As rumacara, i'm involved into hooded gangers conversion work. to give this (from Spartacus serie) :

(http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2856/12673175253_60fbf28580_o.jpg)

For this purpose, i use cloaked and hooded pictish figurines. Some nice are available in the BTD range. I like to use for conversion slinger because you have nearly nothing to cut offf from the figurines and the poses are very usefull for the work !

(http://www.blacktreedesign.com/uk/images/P/ia1075.jpg)

Otherwise, the use of the Westwind pict heads set is required and highly recommended !

i used too the saxon and the romano-british ones !
I mix them with my BTD's viking to get original Saxon/viking, late Germanic warriors......

they are excellent and highly sculpted !
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: rumacara on February 21, 2014, 12:06:23 PM
yup they are

I also use them on my legionaires and some convertions.
If you go for plastic there are those of the warlord ww2 brittish infantry that are usefull for romans.

Cheers

Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: rumacara on February 21, 2014, 02:46:28 PM
Hello Eric

Not the commando ones. The infantry plastic box.
Ech box brings more heads than what is necessary so i used the spare ones
Here are some examples:

Title: Re: In the streets of Rome

Post by: dm on February 23, 2014, 09:06:00 AM
Excellent conversions and ideas all round and very inspired by this :)

Was very tempted to have a go at creating a Roman street gang for Roman Britain a few years back when Foundry brought out the range of Imperial Roman civilians but never got round to it as life got in the way of my painting and collecting at the time and have just checked the Foundry site and it seems the range is now back in production and can be bought as a collection. May now order some of the armed civilian types and give the project a go :)

Those Legionary guards look just the part to try and enforce law and order in a run a down town or a rough arsed ramshackle settlement and most provinces saw civil disorder and internal strife at some stage and this was often put down very brutally by the army.
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: nervisfr on February 24, 2014, 12:49:10 PM
and now some target for our gangers :

see that topic about roman transportation : http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=37870.0 (http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=37870.0)

plentyfull of good ideas, once again !   ;)


the LAF is done for that  lol
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: rumacara on February 24, 2014, 01:51:00 PM
Hello all

Eric those are great ideas.
A small patrolling river boat is already on its way with a roman patrol on it (as soon as i have it completed i will take some photos) and one roman wagon is on the pipeline to be scratchbuild as well as 2 more wagons from Front rank medieval range.
Lots of goodies to make on the next month or maybe two.

Cheers

Now that sounds interesting! Are you going to build one?

Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: rumacara on February 24, 2014, 07:34:24 PM
Hello all

Yes Professor its already converted but not painted (the boat).
The roman coach its a future project.
As mentioned as soon as i have pictures i will post it.

Some of my gangers, ready for action but waiting more paint    ;D

(http://imageshack.us/a/img208/8199/b6nc.jpg)

From left to right :
An ex Artizan light spartan infantry, a Saxon casualty from BTD, a Foundry civilian with a Westwind head and finally a Crusader Irish Kern re equiped with a sword.

For weapon like sword and shield, i use Magister Militum ones because their are the cheapest on the market. 10 for 1.40.
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: Prof.Witchheimer on February 27, 2014, 07:52:22 AM
Another bunch of ideas  :-* My favorit is the Saxon casualty guy, splendid character.

I've already received my BTD order containing some greek olders and legionaries wearing cloaks (top service from BTD!) :) These are so much better than the pics on their web site, very well sculpted. Really happy with the lot, thanks again for the inspiration!

btw, here are some further ideas for you:

Some new guys to rules the streets....


An ex spartan officer

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7374/12925983785_cc43e9f818.jpg)





turn now into a sentry for a gang, a gang leader or a spy for the police force (always with a Westwind head) :

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7402/12925984285_e7d1f5c7b9_o.jpg)

and a future slave (WIP) :

the slave + the homemade chain

(http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2876/12925984045_7de2e58959_z.jpg)

the slave ready for action  (to be sold at the market slaves or to run away)

Title: Re: In the streets of Rome

Very nice, especially like the chain with the handcuffs of the slave. A further idea to steal :)


it's a simple cheap necklace with two small wire for the handcuffs and the job is done.

I use superglue to make the chain rigid. So you can have some interesting poses with a flying chain in the air if needed !

like this chap (hell's angel conversion from......) :

(http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3696/12927958714_491c4e72f6_z.jpg)

do you recognize this figurine ?

Post by: Prof.Witchheimer on March 05, 2014, 07:04:04 AM
a thin metal leaf for the sleeveless jacket

Interesting idea to use a metal leaf for the dressing. What sort of metal leaf is it?
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: nervisfr on March 05, 2014, 10:09:58 AM
hello prof,

it's a very soft material (kind of lead) founded in a hobby decorative shop. could be use for floral art etc.....

It's come in roll and can be press, cut, painted, bent, etc.....

I'm not a great fan of milliput ( mix, sculpt, finger track on the material etc....) so i used it instead of.

I make cloak or change the movement of the cloak for example. See my urban cohorte for example.

i make sombrero/hat here :

Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: Prof.Witchheimer on March 05, 2014, 07:40:05 PM
Not a bad idea, indeed. But is that leaf not too flexible for the later use of the figures? I think, you can easily bend it again touching the miniature while gaming.
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: nervisfr on March 06, 2014, 07:39:59 AM
you are right so i glue it with a mix of superglue and neoprene glue (like pattex) and i cover all the surface with a glue-varnish. When it' dry, the objet is hard and it's no more flexible.
For a flying cloak in the wind , you shall be more cautious. I use paper clip cut and it wrap into the cloak, drill and glue into the figurine.

they are based upon some BTD Persian range.

They did look very persian so they gave me the idea to be converted into something lightly different.

thank you my friend.
Your mix of metal and plastic seem very interesting.....excellent job.
I like plastic because it's give a very good animation on the convertion and you can create some conversion more dynamic than with metal (or with less difficulties). Just like SPartacus TV serie where you a jumping/bouncing gladiators in melee !!!

like Spartacus :

(http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120621170521/spartacus/images/a/aa/Spartacus-blood-sand-kill-them-all.jpg)

Eric, thanks for the compliment.
I really enjoy transforming/converting miniatures. Its the part of the hobby that interests me more.
I also started to sculp a few things that one day might reach other peoples homes but i still have a long go for it.
I still have lots of figures to paint and convert to this theme so you can still count with lots of news and some coming this week.

Those germans are on the pipeline as well as numidians from crusader.
Im waiting for a wargames foundry order to complement some more gladiators and unarmed civilians and then i will make some more conversions for rioting mob with stones, sticks and daggers.
But that will take a few more days maybe weeks.

hey,

if you have time, you must give us a tuto (with step by step pics) about your sculpting work like these conversion you did based on Foundry DA   ;D

Could be usefull. Even for me, who don't like too much milliput use.....in fact i don't like the material and the way to use it, is very boring for me.   :?

All my finished gangs for Song of Shadow and Dust (smaller than ones nead for saga version) are at the basing workbench.
Hope to furnish some pics in few days.

cheers

Hello all

Eric, i dont think i have the skill to present a tutorial yet.
In time its my pleasure to do that if it helps but im still training and perfecting the small degree i have in sculping.
If anyone wishes i can describe how i made the conversions but the tunic its not easy to explain.
Mainly its a matter of patience i gess.

Cheers

What varnish do you use (gloss and matt ones)?

Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: nervisfr on April 28, 2014, 10:48:48 AM
i varnish after the basing.
At the moment these figurines are not varnished.   ;)
The gloss aspect is done by the "Smoke".
It's a Tamya product looking like a shader varnish . i use it after painting .
then i use a matt varnish , that fix all the grass etc.....

the flash give a very gloss aspect that doesn't exist in real.
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: rumacara on April 28, 2014, 10:52:58 AM
Hello all

Yes i know smoke from tamiya although i never used it on this way. Good tip.
About the matt varnish i use vallejo but sometimes even shacking a lot of time, the product stays slightly brilliant and from time to time small white spots appear after spraying the miniatures so i need to try others.

Cheers

Rui

Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: nervisfr on April 28, 2014, 11:16:32 AM
when i'm run out of varnish i use a spray for PVC plastic renovation (garden chair, etc....)....
it's very matt but never failed like some special hobby varnish.
The white spot arrived because of an air reaction if it's too cold outside for example......a friend of mine put his figurines a few minutes near an open hot oven. Strange but it's work...never try it for myself.... ???

Thanks for the comments..... ;)

I included Drunkards because in the ganesha Rules it's possible to get characters with this special ability.  8)

The guy in toga with the lady is a foundry from the roman imperial range from the time they were sold by piece and not in pack (a long time ago). Not available  at the moment i think . He's lightly smaller than the actual 28mm, like all the range
of IER of this time...

Right Professor,  for the Irregular sheep.....the cheapest on the 28mm/25mm  :P

The pigs and the chicken are Gripping Beast,

and the cow are "collector" from Hinchliffe at the good old time of my start in wargaming with true 25mm. Only few manufacturers on the market like : Minifigs, Lammings, Hinchliffe, Naismith, Garrison .......all sold by piece. The blister was unknown !   :'(

the babies are 15mm irregular

get some new romans from BTD :

To join in the law and order gang !  :D

Preatorian (to turn into legionnaries) in comparison scale with a foundry centurion (nearly converter with a hole in is hand for a stick/club)

(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5312/13952080347_2e5d960ce6_c.jpg)


and (from left to right) a BTD centurion and a legat, still in scale comparison with our Foundry guy

(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7348/14158829873_5ea1f46785_z.jpg)

i don't like the legat helmet so i think i'll swap it with an another head..... ???
Life is cheap in my workbench  lol
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: Prof.Witchheimer on May 09, 2014, 10:05:42 AM
I've also got this legat and dislike the helmet and the cloack being made not that nice. But apart from that BTD has a few very lovely Romans to offer. That centurion left from legat is a musst have!
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: nervisfr on May 09, 2014, 10:17:06 AM
Exactly, the legat seem to be a little bit "static".

no matter for me, some blows of cutter and a new design for his cloack will do the job for me.

BTD have generaly an excellent scupt but there are less popular than Foundry.....and very cheap with their Premium service !  lol

Now what?
West Wind? ;)

Depending on the look you want to give him, you can choose from the bareheaded picts (a older look) or the welsh ones (younger look).
If you have the hooded picts heads you may try how it looks.
Try if you like, a shield on his left hand. Small rounded.

don't know "Plebs" but i'll get a look when available here  ;)

The head is coming from a Crusader (exact Rui) Velite. As my favorite Westwind heads doesn't fill the job, i remember that one.

This kind of haircut can be usefull for medieval period too ....for page, esquire etc...

Ex BTD Pratorians turned into simple legionnaries, the one on the left lost his helmeted head for a bare one

and some leaders (also BTD)

Hello all

Well done Eric. :-*
The pretorians have a complete new look.
The leader with the cloak is very nice.
I would sculp some boots or roman sandals. You will see that it transforms the miniature compleetly.
Try the boots. They are easier to do. ;)

Hey Rui

for the boots scuplting : Joker !    :D

if needed, i'll paint them on his bare feet. lol

The officer is a Spartan leader with a swap head.
The bare headed ex pratorian give him his helmeted one. nothing is lost with me.  o_o

Post by: Prof.Witchheimer on May 12, 2014, 02:17:39 PM

Brilliant :) He looks like an assassin! But he definitely needs some sort of shoes.

Post by: nervisfr on May 12, 2014, 02:48:48 PM
You can cut off his command stick and give him a knife.

For the shoes, i'll see the option.

Does Rui can give us a  tutorial for sculpting sandals or high roman bosts like this :

Post by: Mad Doc Morris on May 12, 2014, 04:44:48 PM
Very nice selection of minis and lots of great ideas for conversion. Cool! 8)

I wouldn't use this elaborate sort of sandals on the 'cloaked' fellow, though. It's probably fancy dress alluding to mythology and some such, primarily seen on big statues to impress. There are much simpler (and more realistic) designs you could try first. Here's a picture*, likely way too schematic but you get the idea:

(http://leadadventureforum.com/gallery/17/1034_12_05_14_6_39_17.jpg)

The equestrian boots are perhaps your best bet, suitable for a 'praetorian' officer and fairly easy to sculpt, I guess.

*In case anyone wants a source for that pic, it's nicked from a thread at Roman Army Talk (http://www.romanarmytalk.com/20-roman-re-enactment-a-reconstruction/149019-calceus-patricius-senatorius-equester-looking-for-input.html?limitstart=0&start=15) where more information can be found.

thanks for the details of boots, Doc Morris.

i'll try to make you happy (and Rumacara and Prof too) and try a scupting of sandals as soon as it's possible  :D

thanks ALex,

so here we go

A syrian ganger ..............
Conversion of a BTD Persian Torso with the legs of a BTD ethiopian/nubians.

A slave/shepard/roman ganger with club.  .....
Conversion (only for the club) of a Redoubt naked Mycenean slinger (excellent material for slave etc in light dress or none).

A revolting or rioting slave.......
Conversion of Ancient Crusader adolescent German warriors. A stone in his right hand (a piece of lead cut away from a base, with some glue on it) and a rake from Irregular (farm tool equipment)
A good reference for the job of roman/slave workers.....

2 African/Syrian gangers or anything else.........
Minor convertion of 2 BTD Ethiopians/nubians warriors.
The first one : a small axe filled is hand and his right leg is simply bent to give him a running pose.
the second one : No change and only added a homemade sword with a spear pole crushed with a bender and when flat, shaped into a sword with a cutter.

More to follow soon  ;)

The victim is a mantic goul with a Vitrix scabbard .

the berserk has his head turned in the other way.

The pilum is going through the goul's throat and goes out from his eye which give the 3 parts of the weapon :

One in the base of the hand of the slave, the middle part in the throat and the pointed out from the head.

Simple but efficient !

At the paint workshop !

Ruy, the sandals on the right one are not in green but only engrave on the bare feet of the pict. Sorry but i was in a hurry at this time.... :'( so i take the most easy way to complete my conversion.


As say herr doctor Re-animator ; " Commonly, the best conversion is generaly the simple one  "

Nice work on those Eric and lovely ideas. :-*
Perhaps a head swap on 1 or 2 and place a legionaire head with helmet. ;D
Nevertheless they are great.
There goes some picts... lol

Many thanks Eric but i have to decline your offer my friend.
Im trying to sell an army of picts and i will keep some for mad conversions so i still have a lot of them from Foundry, Gripping Beast and Black Tree.
But i might "steal" your idea if you dont mind.
I did like the look on those and i really think its a great idea.

hello boys,

A new addition to our gang of Rome world....The roman litter (small one) !

2 slaves (ex Redoubt slingers) and a Warlord bed converted into litter in the most simple way.
The roman lady will follow.
the 4 bearers version will follow..........a day, could be  :?

Next to them, a old reference of Gripping Beast Pict, converted (only by paintjob) into roman (or jewish) ganger.

thank guys,

My next litter will be a 2 seated one (i hope) and possibly with a canopy (and curtain ?). I have to find two people lying abed and take my courage to start the creation.

but it's not for tomorrow because i have start some Late Roman troops (to use like Arthurian) for playing games with the ganesha rules set : "Song of Arthur and Merlin".

like this one (based on a GB Saxon noble) turned into Sub-Roman british victim !     ;)

(http://www.wargamesfoundry.com/files/cache/173ad9a93fdf3281bff2b40ae1a06fed_f2001.png)

For the single version, i'll use an Askaki casualty (bottom rank , in the middle) converted into Roman/greek civilian....

(http://www.wargamesfoundry.com/files/cache/56de8c6a657c8545530023dccaf13c33_f7268.jpg)

Also the mounted pict with head and sword swap and a shaved head will do for a messenger or a mounted noble.
The two other picts would act as elders perhaps one as a magistrate.

In the 2 major threads that are running on these Gangs of Rome, I see that the OPs are scratchbuilding their own buildings to line the streets. However, I do not have these skills nor do those I will game the scenarios with. Can anyone tell me of manufacturers in 25/28mm for suitable buildings? I am aware of Grand Manner and Najewitz Modelbau but the former are quite exxy and the latter not suited to the insula I want for the starting point of the great unwashed. Grateful for any assistance.

You already have the two greatest manufacturers of roman buildings.
There are others (buildings) that may suit your wants.

3 level building could be too expensive and the homemade scratchbuilding are the best and not so difficult way to fit the job for a street fight project. The light weight of the constructions are a good point too  ;)

It's very unpredictable, isn't it?  Sometimes it gives the best lighting for pictures ever, other times it doesn't help at all.

I actually had never heard of them until your post.  I grabbed the first book in audio and am part way through it.  I think I'm going to keep a list of all the small things the characters might fight over for future scenario use.  So far I just have one:  A local settlement refuses to pay its taxes.

I imagine the same thing could work in a city, where "taxes" might be protection money  ::)

Macro and Cato adventures are great for us, Rome Gangers ......... lol lol lol

As i try to add to this project, a project based upon the alexandrian revolt and riot against Caesar during the civil war and the books are very usefull for inspiration purpose.
I found most of them on Amazon Marketplace system for 1pence + postage. ..... :o
i'll try to produce more buildings in a near future to complete my "city". Carpathian (see here  (http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=67737.0) with is last post give some punch to keep going my project..... ;)

with some Latrines.

(https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8663/16730288162_2894201d69_b.jpg)

the roof is not ready at the time.

The idea has been stolen in the topic of an another "Gangers", from Carpathian (http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=67737.0), with his removable city.


Some details on my blog (http://chti-reanimator59.blogspot.fr/2015/03/le-re-animator-se-disperse-facon-puzzle.html) (use translation button for an idea)

When you'll be ready with some stuff/conversion/paintjob to show us, create your own topic about the Project and then you'll join the LAF gangers into the street war projects... lol

You are welcome to steal.   ;).  As usual you seem to have done a better job on it.  For my insulae project I went for quantity not quality....

I've just added an Arab type group to my gangs after picking up some Old Glory Eastern Mob figures that were based as hordes. Fortunately they came off the 5-6 figure base easily, so 15 of them were singly based on washers and a Fantasy type Arab in a litter carried on the shoulders of 2 hefty slaves has gone to be painted by a friend who is painting my 2 Roman coaches as well in exchange for some plastic log cabins that I no longer required.

Now to look to some buildings including a latrine.

Working on it.  Now that I'm back on my speed painting approach and not trying to make my hobby into something it's not I'm making good progress on my first miniatures for the project.  I also recruited my first local participant.  He's a WAB player who has lots of individually based stuff.  We played a small wilderness skirmish using his miniatures and a bunch of his stuff will be appropriate for fighting in and around a city on the edge of Roman held Syria.

i'm not working for a demo standard building, just something pratical, strong to handle and easy to use.   ;)
Thank you for the graffiti link.

I thinking going for practical when it comes to terrain is the way to go.  Roman streets are very interesting and I'm trying to figure out how to make my buildings sufficiently modular that I can turn them around different ways and still have a good gaming space.

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/e7/Dura_Europos_L7_City_Block.svg/2000px-Dura_Europos_L7_City_Block.svg.png)

Though it might be that I need to start thinking about it more like I'm building terrain for a fantasy dungeon than a mostly open wargaming area.  Things can be cramped with so many doorways and rooms.

As for enamels, do citrus based thinners work like they do for oil paints?  I do oil washes or the occasionally blended highlight with oils and find that citrus thinner doesn't smell nearly as bad as turpentine (except for people who hate the smell of oranges).

Post by: Carpathian on March 08, 2015, 03:32:41 PM
Interesting, it sounds like you are describing something more like a typical maze-like Middle Eastern medina/souq.   Such as the market of Aleppo, sadly damaged in recent fighting.   From a gaming standpoint, somewhat more interesting than a typical Roman grid layout.   

Modular sounds intriguing--you could build them on adhesive floor tiles; nine of them would be enough for a SSD game.    Anyway, as you said, perhaps you should start your own topic to avoid hijacking Eric's ;)

That's look interesting. but Modular building will require a good brainstorming before assembling !

The only reason I could think of for a prostitute to be arrested like that in ancient Rome would have been failure to pay tax (or perhaps "exercising her office" too near a temple)!  And I doubt that they would have arrested any patron who wore a toga.

Every is possible in the dark street of Suburra (popular part of Rome)....

Especially with the "Song of Shadows and Dust" rules.

Hope to present you some new buildings in a near future. I'm working on the Lucius Villa !

As i'm reading the adventure of Macro and Cato from  the Simon Scarrow novels (http://www.catoandmacro.com/author/), i have a full list of scenarios and ideas for this project.....but so little time, sniff.

Some new characters to fill my streets (still in building phase)... :'(

(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7653/16487180564_203c9ab90d_b.jpg)

The 2 guys on the left are BTD Greek.
The 2 in the middle are BTD egyptians (for the Alexandria Project).
The 2 others are :
A Gripping Beast Pict Chieftain converted into a Jewish/arab merchant (just take off the sword scabbard and add a big plastic bag as a purse). Add a chest a his feet.
A Foundry Goddess turn into a merchant/slave.

the left hand is a Redoubt Troyan slinger with a homemade club .

The clubs are made with a piece of a paper clip with glue added : Pattex then superglue and you get a strong wood club. Chimical reaction in fact).

The right guy has a Westwind head (so appreciate by Rumacara).
His body is a BTD nude Greek hoplite.

thank.

It's a kinder egg toy about the french comics Asterix and Obelix   o_o
he was glued on a wood block (stolen to my 6 years daughter) and bases on mdf.
The copplestone is sculpted directly on the wood with an engraving pen (hot pen like for wood/glass engraving).

the statue is brush with tiling glue and then painted.

and now, ladies and gentlmen, the cherry on the cake :

With my counterpart Rui and our common Roman Project, we have made a little contest about the scratbuilding of a Roman wagon.
Here is my version. The result of my work is not a a hyper detailled model.....but for what i m looking for is enough !


The wagon is a Warbases and is very good and easy to build, even whitout plan.. ;).



We are gone from this :

(http://war-bases.co.uk/image/cache/data/CARTS/carts%20006%20(640x427)-500x500.jpg)

to this :

(https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8843/18265514462_9199016c26_c.jpg)



and with a horse from Front Rank Miniatures for comparison scale :

(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7790/18081543360_fbbe6372c8_c.jpg)

(https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8821/18242866546_a205b8c23d_c.jpg)


Before undercoating, the wagon was washed with a mix of water and glue for coating and then spray with a plastic primer (for plastic garden furnitures). that neutralize the mdf (drink effect) for the painting.

Now, i'm in the paint job of this beauty... o_o

Enjoy

The dead animal is a 15mm dog that 'll be, with a paintjob, a skinned sheep or something like that
The grey meat piece and knife on the right is coming from a plastic's WH40k Kroot equipment.
The meat cleaver is from Mantic's Gould box. It's handler is sculpted from the hand.
The small pieces of meat are 15mm bags (with a paintjob of course)

The stand is made from the mdf sprues like these  lol  o_o:

Wow, Eric, those are fabulous. I really like the buildings. That gives me a bit of inspiration! :)

BTW, speaking of Foundry civilians, I've one (I think he's Foundry, got him from Col. Bills) who looks like he's an old balding senator holding his toga. On his right forearm is something that looks more or less like an archer's arm guard. I don't know what it is so I don't know how to paint it. Do you have that figure or do you know what upper class Romans wore on their forearms? I'm not sure if it is leather, bronze, or what.

On his right forearm is something that looks more or less like an archer's arm guard. I don't know what it is so I don't know how to paint it. Do you have that figure or do you know what upper class Romans wore on their forearms? I'm not sure if it is leather, bronze, or what.

Thank you Richard.
That's one of the purpose of my blog : give inspiration and taste to everyone !
About your fig, do you have a picture about it.
I don't remember this kind of figurine does exist in the foundry roman range.
I have some reference that are not in their web site from their civilians range.
May be yours is coming from them.
The arm guard is unknown for me. Except in the hollywood movies where you can see it everywhere, even ben hur (c Huston one) got one.

Cheers
Eric

Not sure what that is on his right forearm and wrist nor what color it should be.

ok i see.
I have this guy. And he comes from that mysterious pack that i found in the Foundry Stand few years ago at Crisis.
It's a roman ambassador (see my blog (http://chti-reanimator59.blogspot.fr/2014/11/re-animator-into-wild.html) for more info . Ref CIV 18 and unknown at Foundry web site.
I ask them a question about this pack and never received an answer....
Foundry and his special business relationship  :?

i paint it as gold strap and it's look good for me

Eric, thanks for posting that Ancient Warfare issue on your blog. My 15mm Pontic army has been sitting because I can't find any illustrations or paint scheme ideas. Seems like there is not much out there about how the Pontic army looked. I have a book in French, which I unfortunately don't read, but has nice computer-generated illustrations for the Ptolemaic Kingdom. I was planning to go with those.

Before I order that copy of AW, does it contain decent illustrations? How is the article itself?

Best regards,

Richard
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: nervisfr on September 29, 2016, 02:33:04 PM
There is few plates in Ancient warfare but a lot of very useful articles.
1 plate for the cover.
1 about imitation legionaries
1 on cataphract cavalryman
1 on egyptian navy
1 on greek siege warfare
And a central ouble pages on roman siege warfare
All plates are original ones
As a wargames since 1979, i have learn some new things about Mithridates.

BOF Studios have released a range of Roman civilian types although unfortunately not up yet properly on their site. Catalogue page is here (http://www.bofstudio.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=5&zenid=d24335a190b6a4fe0657b12685496697).

I am really, really loving the scratch-built inventiveness and ingenuity. I love the millstone, not because it has anything to do with a battle between armies but because it is one of those subtle details that turn the battlefield from a generic table top into the illusion of a real place.

I can't wait to see all these projects put together on a gaming table together.  :-*

little piece of terrain makes always the bill  ;)

Need time to prepare the scenarios to use with the town.

I have in mind to feature my city more in Ostia than in Rome for being original.

But i need to built some docks warehouses and some quays but who says harbour says boats !
So i'll need to scratch-build one or two roman transport boats then :?

I've started a thread on GoR here http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=104408.0

There is information filtering through. It will be small model count, uses coins and stat cards, each "fighter" has unique stats, uses a "jigsaw base" to track wounds and ID minis and it will be supported with terrain.

I have the feeling it isn't a large sweeping game of gang warfare that I feel you and Rui want to achieve. A little confused and intrigued at the moment by it.  :?

i have just return to this Project, where some new stuff are coming to feel in this topic.

Back with basing job to see on my blog (https://chti-reanimator59.blogspot.fr/2018/04/le-printemps-du-re-animator.html).

thank you gostgost.

here it is a little display test for most of my buidlings. Without all the add-ons like slaves market, market's place with all the stands, chariots, etc.....

Just to see how far i have to go in the scratchbuilding of houses etc.....to get a good playing area

test 1

You could probably add wall sections quite quickly to create the alleys and break up the open spaces. Quick and cheap, whats not to like ;)

Walls and one or two arched passageway between down town (suburia like) and the city.... :D

There's definitely nothing wrong with adding more buildings to the table,and your collection. The more you have the more variation in the layout.

But at the moment I think your doing yourself a disservice . You've made some nice buildings .As you mentioned you've not added your set dressing(slave market,market stalls ,and chariots) So the spaces are going to look massive. Plus the more you add the less room for Sausage fingers to push figures around.

I'd recommend a couple more tests with the dressing pieces added. As a market stall that close,but not pushed against a wall,makes an alley (of sorts)

Are you set on having the temple central? As there's a couple of quick ideas that would change the flow of the layout.

Have you thought about a couple of walled gardens,courtyards ,and or compounds.Or separate porticos and  colonnades. that can be placed against existing builds? They'd be fast additions to build and versitle.

thank you for your advice.

i'm just at the start of the layout and have a few buildings to add...

May be the market place could fill the gap by itself.
i'm not limited in gaming area but i don't want to get one to large, for gaming purpose  ;)

Post by: tyrionhalfman on April 30, 2018, 03:36:29 PM
They all look great. By all means add more if you want to add variety, but if not I think youve got plenty. You need open spaces after all to get in and move the figures about.
You could always leave a large open plaza in the middle for a big showdown, meaning the buildings will be more squeezed in around the edges leaving the narrower back alleys for assassins and thugs to lurk and ambush from
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: tin shed gamer on April 30, 2018, 09:18:50 PM
Eric,

Just to throw the cat amongst the pigeons.

Why have only one large square?

Why not hide the square footage around the board.
Reduce the big open space and have one or two additional smaller squares each with one of the statues from in front of the temple (will help make each open space feel smaller).

Why do all the buildings need to sit on the same XY axis? Not every street needs to be orientated on a grid.
Remember your Chelmsford 123 .'straight is great ' but 'bendy is trendy',or 'curvy is pervy' if it doesn't work for you. ;)
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: Metternich on April 30, 2018, 09:56:38 PM
Tin Shed Gamer - if the area is meant to be that near the Forum, than the buildings will sit on the XY axis.  You can get "bendy" in other neighborhoods.
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: tin shed gamer on April 30, 2018, 10:54:46 PM
The forum in Rome is a complex series of builds and isn't without curved streets and buildings both with in the complex and around it.
Not all forums were strictly squared . The one in the picture is in Jordan.

Eric,
I've included a few pictures for an added sense of congestion ,and there's a picture of a smaller market away from a forum. These turn up all over the place small towns ,the poorer suburbs in cities.

As i'm not trying to build a true roman city, or even Rome... i'll keep my project to a moderate size   ;)
to give a good playing area.

The most important at the moment is to "break" the corridor effect of the streets with some walls...and gates   ;)

Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: tin shed gamer on May 01, 2018, 04:42:18 PM
I'd say your on target.

The point I was quite spectacularly failing to make whilst racing a dying phone battery. Was simply trying to show two things . Streets look massive without people,and shrink once they're in it.
Also there's no issue with a gridded settlement,or indeed on which has organically evolved through constant habitation. As both are present with in a Roman context.In short what ever you do will be a Roman settlement.

I think your choice of arches is the right way to go.

It dawned on me once I sae your artists impressions of street life. Why your roads look so wide . Foot paths . You've none by raising your buildings on plinths you'll get foot paths and sunken roads. This will make the spaces appear smaller.
The plinths don't need to be attached to buildings nor do they need to be for just one building. Then having arches cut through the footpaths will help create bottle necks and Choke points.ideal for gaming.

I've not had the time until now to reply. I took the time to follow your links,and I'd say if that's the styling your aiming for . Then your on target,and seeing the progress you've made with the arches I'd go as far as to say your raising the bar.

A nice idea, well executed, that will certainly add another dimension both visually and in a gaming sense.

One tip from when I carved stuff from foam: Add some PVA into your primer layer as it adds strength and stops the foam 'eating' so much of the paint.

Id agree with Tin Sheds comments about adding the footpaths...once youve got slightly raised areas youd be amazed how quickly the space in between buildings seems to get eaten up.

Really like your walls/arches.

Those tiles look good.  What did you use?

as you can see on the picture, i use a piece of corrugated paper (a green one this time).
All my buildings are based on this same roofing style where tiles are needed. Cost : nearly nothing

the tiles are design with a simple cutter.
I draw lines with the cutter and a ruler to simulate the tile lines. Don't press on the cutter to cut only the rounded shape of the corrugated paper

simple but efficient, isn't it ? ;)

Like Mark said, the walls add a whole new level to your table setup. Also, I like the temporary structures, makes for a 'lived in' look.
That said, splashes of colour here and there would be nice, like painted walls or different kinds of shingles. Greeks and Romans had a weak spot for garishly painted statues and some such. :D

i know that romans like flashy colors and are used to paint their statues....but i don't want to give a too much "roman" style to the buildings because i have planed to use some of them for other periods/areas   ;)

Just found that in a car boot sale for the harbour sector of the city :

new addition needs ;

A crane for the workers and for the harbour....

i'll try a scratchbuild of that one (less sophisticated)

(https://i.pinimg.com/564x/96/f2/26/96f226297b958c0a07d7dc8e0e80159e.jpg)

as i try to keep the cost low .

Eric,
It'll be a useful and interesting addition.
I know your planning on building your own,and I'm all for it ,much more satisfying.No doubt your aware of them, but just in case your not. I've added pictures of the Sarissa cranes  . (15,and 12.50) As sometimes a little extra expenses save the more valuable aspect of time.(It's how I prefer to work build everything I can ,and buy only when its going to save a shed load of time :D )

If nothing else they'll help you speed up a parts list.

Mark.
Title: Re: In the streets of Rome
Post by: nervisfr on June 13, 2018, 02:59:12 PM
thank you Mark.

i knew them. They are great ones.

the most difficult to realise is the wheel and you can use that one if you are like me (more builder than buyer). ;) as a good start for the crane.

(http://blotz.co.uk/images/B28_ST_101.JPG)

For the 28mm one, it'll cost you 5.00 from Blotz, available too in 15mm and 20mm scale.

I fully understand. I spend all day making models for other people.With three children at university, my personal project budget often stretches no further than cereal packet card.
I all honesty that's what I was planning to use for my dock front pieces.

Hey guys,

After a long long long time without additions for this Project.
Here i'm back to present you my next terrain piece ; A slave jail made from nothing (as usual)...

From a little basket given by Pascal, one of my club's buddies, i have create a small jail/cage for my slave's market place.

1st : The scale comparison with the basket (turnupside down) and a slave worker

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48288431187_4a4142a503_k_d.jpg)

Well, the cage's top is cut (one third from the top) and glue to the middle level.
then i add some big matches to feature iron bars and make the basket more strong too  ;)

and a balsa door.

The Assassin is simply a paint work.
i have all ready some Foundry Wrestlers from the Gladiator range but i need two more and none in stock so the solution is ; Find the good chaps for the work in the lead mountain.

Last week-end, i got a new idea for this project.
Create a fire brigade for the city (Vigiles urbanis)
Few pictures are available so i'll try to produce something with historical background but not too close of reality because i'm not in a modelling guy but a wargamer.
so the figurines will be done as i imagine them.
The firemen have some attibutes : axe (Dolabra), rope, water backet...

i found some French texts about that and i'll use them for the task.

i found in the kids toys box a western wagon that will become the fire cart of the Vigiles

For my Wresler gang i found a Leader in my Heroclix figurines stock.

1st version of Hercules i think. With a Westwind bearded head.

the paint work will give him the final Wrestler look  ;)

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48582457637_7a51889e47_k_d.jpg)

And for the Fire brigade,

i have made some water backets with cheap fantasy beads and the handlers with plastic bristles coming from a street broom.

when i saw him,  i told myself ; That's the guy i need for leading my Wrestler gang  ;D

The new "Hercules" wasn't so good but more strong. I convert him into a big Gladiator (see here (http://chti-reanimator59.blogspot.com/2014/03/re-animator-vous-informe.html))

and a pictures of the 3 Foundry's wrestlers i have already done :
