  • So what ever we want? Does that mean armies and dioramas are OK for this one, or is it single model only?

  • @Red Bee armies and diorama's are ok. Do note this is the Atlantic Digital specific painting contest for january.

    Title of entry - Gunners of the 15th Georgia Artillery mandhandling a BL 6-inch 26 cwt, Doggerland Front, 1917.

    Description of entry - In WWW1 the CSA relied heavily on lend/lease guns of French and Britsh design. Here gunners can be seen mandhandling a 6-inch howitzer into final firing position. The muddy ground on the Doggerland Front became infamous, although the warfare in this theatre was less static than in France and Belgium.

    Figures WA digitial only, gun also 3d printed - design by Windham Graves and available on thingiverse (have a look at his other great models)!.

    Officer: Sgt. Stubby human companion, with French HMG arms and Rebel Yell kepi.
    Crew: WW1 confederates, some arms mirrored to fit, plus one Rebel Yell kepi.
    Inspired by a picture I found on pinterest, see at the bottom.

    Title of entry - A limitanei of the Legio CXXII Novaterrensis engages Azteca bellatorculi during the 3rd Tenochca War, 2563 ab urbe condita.

    Description of entry - Despite Roman domination of northern Novaterra for centuries, the southern peninsula of the new world remained under control of the triple alliance of the Azteca, led by the wealthy Tenochca. Repeated raids and provocations forced Rome to station large border garrisons of limitanei troops and when, in 2562 AUC, a motorized patrol of the 14th Novaterran Legion was ambushed and massacred, the Empire ordered a punitive expedition. Azteca forces, unable to stand up to the might of Rome in open battle, instead fell back on bellulum tactics: staging hit-and-run attacks with small forces of bellatorculi that melted back into the countryside after striking isolated Roman contubernia and camps. Rome responded with a policy of vastatio, laying waste to Azteca towns, farms, and crops, until the Tenochca sued for peace at the end of 2563 AUC and agreed to pay punishing reparations.

    Figures - Wargames Atlantic Digital "WW2 Romans" printed on an Elegoo Mars 2.

    Title: Lawrence of Arabia and the Arab Revolt (1916-1918) The Arab Revolt was a British sponsored uprising against the Ottoman Empire during the Great War. These particular miniatures will be used in my British Near East force as Arab Inexperienced Riflemen and Arab Assault Experts in Blood and Valor. 

    All parts are from the Wargames Atlantic Digital set: Lawrence and the Arab Revolt.

  • Stepheno Zollos

    Xerxes Riding On the Backs of the World

    Description of entry - Egyptian Digital Kit and Xerxes Digital Kit with a few extra bits to modify the throne for a more "Babylonian" feel. Fun fact toothpicks fit perfectly in the Egyptian models' hands. Wanted a warlord for SAGA and the Persians can have one mounted or on foot. I figured I'd split the difference and now I can use him as either. Wanted to represent the vastness of the Persia with litter bearers from all over the empire, so theres an Ionian Greek, a North African, a Nubian, and a Scythian.

  • Sorry, should have read the pinned note on adding multiple pics before attempting.

  • @Lord Marcus So where do you submit your entries?

    Title of entry - British Naval Brigade

    Description of entry - Just three miniatures from the British Naval Brigade in Sudan. All parts are from the multi-part set and 3d printed. I just added a few paper stripes for the cap bands.

    Best regards,

    Colonial Roman soldiers ready to expand the empire. I was thinking Rome replacing Britain as the world power.
