Populating the Ludus

With all the gladiators training at the House of Justinian Cervus, there was a need for some guards to keep them in line.  Justinian Cervus had hired some former legionaries as guards, hence the weapons and armor.  I could've used Imperial Romans but I've always wanted to paint some Caesarian Romans and the Wargames Factory plastics are cheep and paint up really quick.  The Doctore was made with parts from Wargames Factory's Caesar Legions and Numidian boxes.  I plan on making slaves out of the Numidian box.

Old West

Here is a test figure taken with my camera phone.  My batteries ran out on my camera, hence plan B and it's not a very good plan B either.  I will take a better pic when the camera gets up and running.  The figure is from Old Glory's Old West line.  There are some good figures in the pack and some classic Old Glory poses.

Colonial French

These are my dad's troops for our colonial battles.  I've painted them a few years ago but never took proper pictures of them.  They are for our fictional Africa setting.  As with my Germans and British, we just picked what looks good and what we wanted to paint.  The FFL are from Old Glory Miniatures, and the Zouaves and Spahis are from Askari Miniatures.   My dad has some more FFL MG teams, Chasseurs d'Afrique, and some mounted Spahis to paint.  He is also planig on using some Perry Zouaves as Tirailleurs Senegalais.  These are based in groups of 20 for Sword and the Flame.  Hope you like them.
