Ancient Germans

Yep, I' back already.
I thought it was about time I made a start on these. Foundry ancient Germans at present.

I’ve decided to base them on 60mmx60mm bases which will give me 3 bases to a unit. Thinking of TtS rules set (At this stage).

No set number of figures to a base, whatever looks good, which will probably be between 5 to 8 depending on the figures and maybe a few casualties later on. 
I thought the figures looked better with a bit of spacing between them.

By painting a base at a time the lead pile doesn’t seem so daunting, as I purchased a truck load from Black Tree during their Christmas sales. (Seemed like a good idea at the time as I had already purchased a heap of Romans the Christmas before)



  1. Looking good. I'm considering Germans too, so thanks for posting.

    1. No worries, let see how we get on you might have to crack the whip to keep me moving.

  2. Blacktree Germans are really nice sculpts. I too have a pile of these foundry figs with another pile of BTD Germans. One day I will get around to them.

    1. Cheers. I saw blog a while back when you were smashing through your Celts - I might have to use the same process.

  3. They look beautiful...and fierce, great job!

  4. To the South were provinces of the Roman Empire, separated from them by the broad stream of the river Danube. The Germans, the Gauls, the Slavs, and the Romans,—though they did not know it,—might all call themselves cousins; for most of the peoples of Europe are descended from one great race, called the Aryans.
