Mounted legionaries - WIP

Working on a small number of legionary cavalry, shown below are two with the main assembly completed using Timpo Toyway Heroic top halves, Call to Arms bottom halves sitting on HAT horses. They are waiting for swords and shields - the horses still need a bit more work - reins etc
The auxiliary archers are nearly finished and the new auxiliary cohort is ready for painting as well. I'm painting some more civilians as well.

Gallic village ......

decided to keep the look of the gallic houses more toylike and left the 'fur' thatch as is, so a little village scene....

A cornucopia of delights ....

Managed to pick up a job lot of mixed Atlantic 1/32 figures off Ebay; it includes most of a Romans/Christians set, most of an Egyptian chariot set , and some oddments from other sets (Trojans, Egyptian and Roman Infantry).

I've also bought a box of Italeri Gauls as well so I've enough to keep me busy; Oh yes I've got to paint the roman legionaries too !

Roman Auxiliaries - WIP

the front rank have Call-to-Arms roman legionary sword arms as the original swords were all bendy; the rear rank altered to be holding spears; some work to do yet - some spear points would be handy - out with green stuff to finish off ...
