Upcoming Release: Late Romano British
This is going to be an incredibly versatile set. We are including 30 heads on the main frame alone, covering various styles of helmet with clean shaven faces and helmet heads with facial hair and a lot of bare heads. A mix of Large Roman oval and round shields. There are cloaks and a huge amount of weapon arms including thrusting spears, Swords, axes, Angons and darts.
Here are the first4 sketches for the new Late Roman / Romano British infantry set.
These first four are unarmoured infantry with an assortment of weapon arms that include, spear, Spatha, hand axe (Romano British could use axes and clubs as sidearms) and also throwing darts (Plumbata). There will be a few of these in various styles of being thrown. Some very interesting experiments on You Tube of how these were thrown, underhand, overhand and like a javelin.
There will be numerous heads in this set with some different styles of helmet and some bare heads and suitably Romano British heads. We will add some Spangenhelms which will give this set more versatility again as Goths and Early Byzantines.
There will be cloak options and some cloaks rolled up across the chest which will help give some of these figures a distinctly British flavour.
Here we have the first renders of theLate Roman / Romano British figure 1.
We have two helmet types so far on this figure but with more options to follow. Plus there will be bare heads, heads with facial hair and some Goth type heads to really extend the use of this set from Late Roman/ Romano British to Goth, Early Byzantine, Early Franks etc…
Late Roman / Romano British figure 2
Here are some renders of the firstRomano British / Late Roman command figure/character.He wears leather armour with Pteruges protecting his upper arms and waist. He can be a character figure or command figure.
He has a variety of helmets including crest options and includes a more British style with long hair and braids with a rolled up cloak across his chest as an optional piece. Painting him with plaids and checks on his cloak and tunic will provide a great look for your Romano British warriors.
Here is the Romano British / Late Roman command/character figure 2. He wears a leather cuirass with Pteruges and has multiple head options. These include Roman style helmets or long hair and cloak to give more of a Romano British / Germanic feel to the figure. He also has the option of a Vexilum standard or a Draco.
Parts from other figures in the set will be interchangeable which will give you quite a bit of freedom to create a variety of unique miniatures.
Here are some renders of theRomano British / Late Roman command figure 3.This figure is primarily a Musician with two types of instrument. One being the classic Roman trumpet carried by the Cornicen to relay orders to the Cohort. The other is a war horn which you can use when portraying Romano British or Germanic warriors.
He can also be made into a rank and file warrior with sword or spear. We have started on some Gothic style helmets to get yet more variety out of this set.

With some of the extra helmets being worked on at present he can easily fit into being an Early Byzantine also.
Here we have the design sketch and some renders of the 5th Late Roman command figure.
