Hello guys,
I collect and paint mostly 1/72 figurines and buildings (most of them scratchbuild). I've started some years ago a long term project : comitatus gaulois.
I'm recreating the late Roman army in Gaul at the end of the fourth century, unit by unit. A miniature for ten real legionnaires. Considering that a late Roman Legion was 1000 men strong, I painted almost 100 miniatures for every legion. Miniatures are from all manufacturers wich released sets on that timeframe : Hät, Italeri, MiniArt, Lucky toys, Strelets, and a lot of conversion.
let's start with the legio of the Mattiarii iuniores leaving its wintercamp

Edit : 59 figurines painted, from different late roman set : Hat 8087 , Hat 8137 , Hat 8137 , MiniArt 72013 and Roman transport linear b.

And now buccelarii, private soldiers, unit of bodyguards formed with barbarians and former roman soldiers, working for very high ranking generals at the twilight of the Empire.

Mostly conversion from all manufacturers possible :-)

Great start to your portfolio, nicely finished figures :clapping:
You should have a look at the excellent work in Paul H's and Kaktus's portfolios, they're also into figures in a big way :thumb:

an another unit for today : equites crispiani, a small cavalry troop, based north of Britannia, near the Hadrian wall.
It is a unit made with a lot of conversion, mainly from Hät (roman and gothic cavalry), using putty as well to change heads, arms position and adding coats...

It would be helpful if you told us the manufacturer, scale and which set (product code) these figures came from :idea:

unit of the day : a late britto-roman warband.
To be honest i haven't painted it myself, but i found it on ebay and i added some figs i painted, without the talent of the fellow painter who starts the work...
Figs are mainly from Hat, miniart and italeri, from various late roman and barbarian sets...
