the ships on the back were mine the idea was to get the romans from behind but i miss all the action and my friend using a quinquireme and a trireme stop the romans and sunk a quinquireme and in boarding action captured a trireme losing only a trireme in the action.

What was the overall technique to make them?

Great stuff ! (or maybe Greenstuf?) Very enterprising to make ships yourself which are wholly adequate at this scale.
Oars can be toothpicks ? Some are sold as still stuck together so you can detach a strip for a row of oars. Otherwise stick broom bristle (plastic) together with superglue and trim rows of them off for each ship ? I have tried both ways. OR maybe you can just impress a little strip of plasticene with a form made from the bristles and paint it with drybrushing to make an oar sweep ? I hope the experience infects you with the ancient galley virus…
