Now that's a Roman Legion!

Posted by Peter on 22 Mar 2023, 13:19

Found this picture on facebook today and my first thought was that Konrad has been busy again. :mrgreen:

This picture is taken in Regensburg Germany. Art Miniaturen figures. Around 5000 figures (I didn't count them! :-D ).

You are sure Konrad isn't involved in some way? If it was Asterix romans we would have a suspect. Especially if there were signs of ice-creams at the scene! Great find! Wow! Painting that many! :shock: :shock: :shock:

You've already seen this Legion in 2016.
Back then we wrote about the figs from VAN DYCK MODELS.
You can see it here.

An amazing sight, and the link allows us to see some closer views of the individual figures. This must represent many, many hundreds of hours of effort. Thanks for sharing!

Nothing to worry about, Peter. It's just the age. Of course the Romans had forgotten they had been here before, they are quite ancient.
