Dux Britanniarum: Romano British Warriors



I am now more then half way though my Romano-British force for Dux Britanniarum. Just three units of Numeri left to do. Here we have the 2 units of 6 figures each of the Milites as well as 4 Skirmishers with slings. All Gripping Beast figures. Each unit of Milites has a banner from LBMS, as are the shield transfers. As the Milites are regular infantry so unlike levy I wanted to keep them uniform, but with less detailed clothing then the 1 elite unit of Comanipulares. I thought white looked best. White base, AP Dark Tone, then a dry brush of GW Dry Praxeti White. As they can form into a shield wall movement trays were also painted. I have to say that I am really pleased with how these came out.

  7. I miss the old-style Gripping Beast figures. Some of the recent ones, especially the plastics, have just not been as nice. You have really made a superb job of these. Nicely photographed too
