Street-fighting man

These are some market stalls as base dressing for the Roman  rioter stands I'm currently modelling.


The plan is that the fighting has spilled into a market area.  The table and most of the foodstuffs are from the Gripping Beast "Trade and Tribute" set.  The javelin-man is a Gorgon psiloi.


This is a wine merchant's stall.  The excellent pottery is from Baeuda, and is really very nicely executed, on a scratch-built stall.  The  merchant's cart (below) is from Irregular, a very handy and very cheap piece.



Above are some more Baeuda pots on another scratch-built table.  Finally, below, is a broken table with some Roman bread I've knocked up.


The miniatures are now all painted, and most of the rest of the material is prepared... I'm now just awaiting an order from Antenociti with a few final bits I need before I can start basing up.  As you can see, I'm very much enjoying playing with my Romans again!

Wonderful work and great accessories. Really love the broken table with the bread sliding off.

I think you have done a great job, modelling and painting these pieces.

I would expect to copy a few over the next couple of months.

Many thanks chaps.

Paul, the bread is greenstuff. Two little balls, one on to t'other; squish, criss-cross, job done.

Lovely !

you should use some tables as baricades (pushed on their side)...

BigRedBat said...

Yes Greg, I might well do that. I also have a peculiarly Gallic element, in mind... give me a week.

It is little extras like these that really set the scene. You have done an excellent job and inspired me to purchase some of these for myself.

Galpy said...
