Taxes and duties for the emperor

This is a dio I built a long time on.

It is showing a scene  somewhere in a roman province. The magistrate and a few of his guards encash the taxes and duties from some local  residents.

The figures are are a mixture of diferent sets. The cavalry is from HAT, the barbarians are from ESCI and Italeri. The leginares are also from ESCI, while the magsitrate and his assistant belong to a STRELETS set.

It was very hard to create the rooftop of the house. Don't know if i will ever do something like that again. Tons of glue and knurling at my fingers.

The barrow is an own creation. The wheels and the drawbar are from an Italeri Persian chariot set.

 One guard is taking a very detailed look.
 Not everybody is happy with the encashing. Some have to becalmed down.

One single one

Here's another single bod. It's from the Atlantic Greek cavalry set.

I really like the helmet of this guy. Makes the paining of the face much more easier, when no face to paint is left  ;)

Somewhere in the Aegean

Here is a mix of two different sets.

On the one hand some gladiators from Italeri and on the other hand some men of Alexanders cavalry from Zvevda.

The base is an ancient stone from the jura period I found when i was a child near Eichstätt in Bavaria

All figures were one of my first tries after years of making nothing in modell making. So the painting isn't very good, but only practice makes the master ;)

Mixed one

Here's a small dio I built with a lot of mixed figures.
On the one side is a horde of barbarians (most from Italeri,Revell and ESCI) while on the other side a mix of knights and footmen are in position.

Most of the knitghts are from the Airfix" Sheriff of Nottingham" set enhanced by some Revell's "One hundred years english footmen".
