I've always been a history buff. Two periods in particular fascinate me the Punic Wars and Caesars campaigns in Gaul. Consequently I've always wanted to paint up some Roman minis. Evan from my local club kindly gave me a box of 1:72 scale Romans from Warlord games at Panzershrek and they are my new project. I'm going to take tips from Scott Bowmans blog Scott's Wargaming and look at building a replica of the fortifications Caesar built around Alessia. The figures aren't the right sort being imperial praetorians but they'll be good painting practice.
