Later Romans in Tooling

Later Romans in Tooling

A new set is on the way! WAALR001 Late Roman Legionaries (1): Lorica Hamata.

This set is the first in our Decline & Fall range covering from Diocletian to the end of the Roman Empire in the West where we segue into the Blood Oaths range. There will be some cross-over as well between the two ranges. 

Here is the layout that's currently being milled: 

As the sharp-eyed will be able to tell, there are three unique helmet types (four if you count the centurion one), two types of crests, a bear head for the standard bearer/musician, and fellows in Pannonian/Pillei hats who can be berated by Vegetius.

The Romans can be armed with spatha, spear, or plumbata and there is a club for dealing with those pesky cataphracts! 

We will have more to show on these as they move through the tooling process over the next few weeks along with their Goth adversaries.

Shaun – they ARE Mark’s: http://dreamforge-games.blogspot.com/2018/05/where-to-go-from-here.html

Referring back to the Shadowkesh renders.

Having just looked back at Mark Mondragons variant with the body armour and power Lance’s. I have to say I’d much prefer you to spend your time realising those in plastic over the feral ones you have shown.
In my humble opinion, Marks variant, look much more iconic and imposing.

It was such a shame Mark could never get those to plastic.

So, if we are to see the Shadowkesh,after all this time I’d love to see Marks vision over these feral ones. I’m not saying that they do not look good. Intact ,the very opposite they look fantastic. Just not how I see the Shadowkesh, after being a huge fan of Marks original renders.

I would also like to draw to your attention. That some posters on Facebook seem somewhat confused and unaware of just what Iron Core was/is ,and are unaware of your approach to realising it. I think you should make it clear that you are working with Mark Mondragon to bring his work to plastic alongside your own. Some commenters are under the impression that you are just throwing out some random space monsters kit, and are asking for it to evolve into something completely different.

Keep up the good work and produce Crimean War British Grenadier Guards. Please!!!

These are looking good and I like the mix of weapons options.

I would also like to see Huns

Can I echo all the other well deserved messages complimenting you on your output so far. Can I also echo those who are asking for Hun Cavalry to feature soon. Despite being fairly ubiquitous in the late Roman and Dark Age periods they offer considerable scope for conversions. I would certainly consider buying several boxes

I think I see an Arthurian war band based on the Warlord Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell. I have been planing to do one for ages . Keep up the good work. Looking forward to your next sets.

I’d like to see unarmored Auxilia spearman, Sassanid Persian Clibanarius, Hun horse archers.

Carl Greene - March 27, 2021

Great period, thanks for your work on this. I hope the Huns will be part of the offering. I don’t find many offering for them. Thanks again

Don Williams - March 27, 2021

So glad you are moving ahead with both these Romans and Goth adversaries. They are a good match with the Irish Warriors too for early Dark Ages.

Mad dog - March 26, 2021

Foreshadowing… oh my! Looking good thus far. I am truly impressed with your offerings to date. I look forward to you fleshing out your period sets particularly your World War I and II lines not to mention this one (Roman Republic/Empire).
