Re: Battle of Resaena diorama

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:
