Battle of Resaena diorama

Dear Alberto,

What a fabulous looking diorama. It's great to see all of those excellent Strelets figures painted so beautifully.

Regards, James

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

I concur, what a splendid action scene.
The boys are really getting stuck in with most of the weapons already bloodied. The painting is tip top with great attention to detail, look at the shading on the leggings for instance. I think I'll print these off and see what else I can pick up and try to emulate.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks to everyone for the commissions, it is a pleasure to share our small works.

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

I too can only add that its simply fantasic!!!

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

It's always good to see some Ancients in action. The quality of the diorama was a bonus!

I'll admit to having had to Google the battle to find out what the diorama was about. Fascinating.

Great diorama - not often you see the third century in the East

What box if Roman figures have you used?

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

I used set 2 auxiliaries and advancing auxiliaries, then modified by adding leather bracelets and leg straps, all replicating the reconstructions made by historical illustrators.

Many thanks Alberto

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

Molto bello questo diorama. Ottimo lavoro. Bravo !!!

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

Finally a good diorama about the 3rd century period involving roman troops against some of the most fearful enemies of that age. A very sad fact is that there are too many trajanic legionaries and auxiliaries, but there are no sets at all that cover the 3rd century roman legions. What a pity.

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

Alberto - Beautiful diorama! Of all the producers, Strelets Romans are my favorites. You took already great looking figures and made them look even better! I really like your shields. Thank you for sharing this Friday.

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

Hagen offers a few 3rd century Roman sets in metal ...

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

Yes I have painted 150 of the Hagen Romans into 5 units. Got shield transfers reduced to size from Little Big Man Studio. Also mixed them with the latest Palmyra coif infantry

However it is good to have more variety - that’s why I am also really keen on Alberto’s work

Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

What a fabulous contribution! Full of action and beautifully painted.

I really like the dynamic fighting poses of those Strelets auxiliaries but your painting makes them look even more alive and menacing. Love it. :heart_eyes:
