Late Romans and dux bellorum

Phew finished at last. Here we have my take on a late Roman army in post Roman Britain. I see them as a collection of stay behind garrison units and militias. Historically correct ? Who knows but they sure do look impressive heheheh


The force is bigger than I originally intended to make it. The final count is 270 figures most of which are conversions.. I must admit, it's really got me back into converting and painting miniatures again. so onto the next army.

  1. Wow, what a fantastic looking force Robert! A great effort on your part and I think the conversions you have done coupled with the shield designs, banners etc make for a wonderful army. Can't wait to see your next force.

  3. Very nice army indeed. What models are out there in this scale to be their enemies though? I was looking at Dux Bellorum with a mind to do it in 10mm, but there are no miniatures to support it that I know of...Except Pendraken late Romans, but no enemies...Saxons/Irish/Picts etc....

    I was trying to persuade Adler miniatures to make some for their new 10mm range..alas no luck there either...

    Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    1. Apart from liking the look of the Kallistra Romano Brits they also had a fairly extensive range of Saxons nad a lot of the Vikings were useful too. Since then I have checked out a number of the other ranges and found several packs of generic figures that I am convinced that with conversion (mainly shields) I can cover the irish and picts as well check out my posts

    1. By co-incidence I was just looking at your depiction of the life of Arnoul d'Audrehem. Nicely done and very amusing.
