Supplies for Sorviodunum...

A supply convoy is heading for roman fort of Sorviodunum. There have been reports of unrest amongst the gauls, gallic cavalry were spotted on a recent patrol - the commander is taking no chances and some of the garrison stand ready on the walls, and by the gate - including a detachment of auxiliary cavalry.
The supply convoy has been spotted in the distance and the auxiliary cavalry set off to escort them in...
The supply convoy on their way to the fort..
The cavalry meet up with the supply convoy ..
Gauls in the woods !
A flurry of slingshot and arrows fell some of the cavalry ..
The ballistas on the fort wall open fire on the gauls, to little effect (long range)
Gallic cavalry canter round the wood and towards the romans ...
As the gauls move forward to attack the rear of the convoy, more gauls appear on the other side...
The auxiliaries at the rear of convoy do their best but are outnumbered .....
The roman cavalry see of the gallic cavalry and the ballista fire fells some too... the convoy and escort make a dash for the fort .....
The pack horse is captured by the gauls ....
The rest of the convoy make it safely into the fort under covering fire from the ballistas and a small detachment of the garrision ...
The gauls hold off - deterred by the ballista fire and the prospect of facing more of the garrison ...
The gauls retire with the captured pack horse and melt back into the woods.

Roman Buildings(1) - Initial Construction - Temple & Spring

Initial build is of a sacred spring and small temple; first of bases and tryout of the cake stand columns

A little work with some foamboard, card and the head of  a plastic puma - the spring done..
  The temple took a lot longer - first had to make a basic shell of building then the basic roof structure
 Then a little detailing to give the effect of some extra features ...
then a front door....

Well next thing to do is finish up a few loose ends, a little terraining of the bases and onto painting.

Also on a list of things to build are
- a small villa (it will be small at this scale - it has to be otherwise the table will be full !)
- small barn
- generic small single story building
