15mm Late Romans

5th Century AD Late Romans, a 15mm army project I'm currently working on: mostly cavalry so far, infantry still to be added. 

Not the best paint jobs, just some extra work added to shields, a few units with layered capes and white clothes all layered. The figures are PSC Ultracast Late Romans, siocast version of the Lurkio 15mm Late Romans...they're damnably mediocre as far as figures go but it's all I can get at the moment. Massive amounts of clean-up and all spears replaced with nylon broom bristles, most right hands re-sculpted with green stuff to make this work. Pain.

The whole mob so far.

Equites Honoriani Taifali Iuniores

  1. Brilliant !! Great job with those Romans.

  2. Those look splendid. Late Roman is such a colourful and interesting looking army and it is still amazes me that we have (fairly good) information on the actual shield patterns that were used. After painting my Late Roman army, using mostly old 1980s Minifigs and Asgard figures, those Lurkio derived plastics look pretty good to me - at least with the benefit of your paint job on them.

    1. Thanks Nathan: the painting lifts them a lot, so does replacing the spindly spears, etc. They're usable, but range like Khurasan or Forged in Battle are miles ahead.

      Ironically, the old Minifigs you've been doing have reminded me of the first army I ever painted...same figures largely, but re-casts of them (I was new and knew nothing), and thus with even worse details!
