@Agis

Absolut awesome!
Great painting and basing.

They can be used as stormcast eternals alternate, may be I write a houserule set for them.
Also will they in scale compare to the new conquest- last argument of kings 40 mm range ;-)

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:

Straight away I was reminded of this series of fantasy novels:

CF57-A963-4-D4-A-4-AAA-81-C8-B2-BED4355517" border="0


Iím already planning on re-fighting some of the battles! I just need to convince VonMoltke to print me an Elf as Stigerís sidekick Eli   8)

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.

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!
More to follow.......

@Suetonius Paullinus
Very special and as allways really grim and dark painting. As a fan of your style, I like him very much :-)

Hmm, VERY tempting, maybe I could paint enough of them to play Gangs of Rome! ;)
cheers and keep on gaming, Agis - http://www.adpublishing.de

No money for plastic....sorry...they will be in resin....

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

Why not metal?

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 really like the looks of these lads (the bikini-clad females, not so much).  I will certainly be interested when they become available for purchasing.

My compliments to all who have provided painted versions - well done!

I imagine these could be used for Warlord's new skirmish ruleset. Is the intent to provide opponents? Spartacus, I'm guessing, or Ancient Britons?

These look very impressive figures.   :)

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?

I don't think the Croc stuff is large enough - except maybe the Demigods.

The Croc stuff is slightly generous 28mm.
