Dux Bellorum Romano-British
I got the first few bases of my Romano-British army for Dux Bellorum finished off today, so i thought id post some pics. the miniatures are all from the Pendraken 10mm late roman range. they are absolutely brilliant figures to paint, they have great detail and depth with lots of posing variations, just what you want at this scale.
i went with 10mm for Dux because i wanted individual detail and characters to stand out but i also wanted the bases to have a scenic feel. for me the combination of these two elements really capture the flavor of dark age heroic combat. you have the crush of the shield wall combined with the named hero pushing through ready to do deeds the bards will sing of (possibly I’ve been reading to much Bernard Cornwall). you all so get all the other great 10mm benefits, quick painting and a good size army on a not to big table, being just two of them.
so we have two stands of Ordinary shielded wall based on 60mm by 30mm and one Base of ordinary riders mounted on a 60 by 40mm base to give them a bit of extra depth.
