The Roaring Northerners are Dave Stewart, John Hill and Iain Robertson; a loose affiliation of tabletop wargamers and figure painters who inhabit the frozen and somewhat soggy wastelands of west central Scotland. Shadowy and secretive, they stoically quest to reduce the scale of the lead mountain that threatens to engulf them all, and perhaps even find the time for the occasional game...

Late Imperial Romans.

An old project dusted off and repaired.

This late Imperial Roman army has actually seen quite a lot of table top action, most notably in several late empire Roman civil war games.

15mm. All figures are Essex miniatures. Painting and basing is all mine as are any anachronisms or errors.

Firstly The legions:

Brittanicus Seniores.
Herculani Iunores.
Armigeri Defensores.

Next two cohorts of auxiliaries from,
I Celtiberorum.

A unit of Gothic knights in Roman service.
I've always been a bit chuffed by the shield designs on these guys.

The Emperor with his escort of Equites Singulares.

Followed by a Scholae Clibanarii.

Light horse:

Equites Dalmatae.
Scholae Sagitarii.

Finally the light infantry archery screen for the army.

With luck I will get these boys out on the table top again sometime soon, that are always fun to play.

Hope they are of interest.

As ever any comments pro and con gratefully received.
