 :o  That's quite an artillery piece.  They did use some heavy artillery in one of the 69AD field battles if my memory serves me.

Additions last week

A onager from warlord games, a superb piece, but ensure you get it square!

Quite a battery!  Nice work.

The basing is really nicely done.
But what I always like with historical minis is the vision of units when the army comes together and gets big…like really big.
Your units are already very impressive!

Next up the warlord miniature of a mounted Maximus, not a great scout as a little small.

Nice mini!  :-*

I particularly like the way you painted the horse. The markings are spot on.

Nice project!
