This month I'm looking back to one of the earlier 'bespoke' DBA projects I did.

Sub Roman British

The army is inspired by the Clive Owen 2004 movie (which I quite enjoyed despite its many problems) …

I have tried to give a 'frozen North' feel to the basing by mixing snow in thaw with heather etc. (the idea being that, as well as looking good in itself, the bases would work nicely on a white snowscape or on a more generic greenish battlefield) …

The figures are mostly 15mm Gladiator with some Chariot, Essex and Peter Pig mixed in.

Another awesomely beautiful eclectic mix of figure makes, types and even body parts! No one else mixes it up superbly like you do!
