Welcome to the Ancients Painting Club (APC)!

Well, today we're going to try something new. I’m on vacation this week, so it looks like I just have too much time right now, but never mind. While painting up a few Romans the other day I was pondering how to post them to the forum. Starting a thread for the odd 2 or 3 figures doesn't make that much sense to me. But then I hit upon the idea of doing a common thread on the Ancients board!

It's actually quite simple: this thread is about painting a 100 miniatures. Ancients stuff only, of course. Every member of this forum is invited to post photos of his/her painted miniatures here. As soon as we'll surpass that “a hundred" limit, the game's over, we will celebrate, sing and dance and all that.

Some simple rules for this:
•   Like said, it’s about painting miniatures which cover the Ancients period. Also mythological stuff like the Argonauts or similar topics are allowed.
•   You may post only one miniature each day. And only one, not a few or a lot. We don’t want to get to "game over" too soon. (That said, several shots from different angles are acceptable, of course.)
•   Once entered, you don’t have to post every day. It’s perfectly sufficient to post just one single miniature at all in order to take part in the game and to become a member of our shiny Ancients Painting Club.
•   This is not about showing your collection of already painted stuff, so please do post only newly painted miniatures. We’re not in a hurry, so take your time.
•   If you want to present miniatures which are to be based in groups, it's fine to post them one by one without a finished base. A concluding picture of the final result would be nice, though.

And that’s all, now get painting!

And here comes my first entry, it just had to be one of the figures from one of my favorite ranges – Foundry Caesarian Romans made by Mark Copplestone.  It’s a Roman tribune - Tribunus militum. For some reason he reminds me of these Asterix Romans Smiley

Entry Nr. 1 (Roman Tribune)





And now I have to varnish my tomorrow's entry!

A very good reason to get our gladiator project going. I won't post him for a few days yet. He's not quite finished.

Here, here, I had just put the gladiators on the back burner in favour of Robin Hood. So will drag them out of the box again Laugh

Ah, there it is! Cool
Hopefully there's a lot of eye candy to come. Unfortunately (if just for myself), I won't be able to participate for the time being. But good luck and thanks in advance to every participant!

In case that an Imperial Roman legionaire is considered "ancient" rather than "modern", I have a successful experiment to contribute. I need confirmation before I show him though...

OK here´s my entry. A little conversion of a Saxon Spearman, from Musketeer Miniatures. This one represents a gallic merchant, a roman merchant and some other civillians are on my bench too. May be they will appear here in the very near future...

Entry Nr. 2 (Gallic Merchant)

Thanks! Alex, you are absolutly right, we have to count them! I resized the pic, looks better now. I took the pic with my iPhone, the next one, when my cam is back, will be better.

This idea of our admired prof. left me totally excited until I got home. I knew I had some Romans in the attic and couldn´t await to unpack them. I did immediately and set myself the goal to paint one tonight. I never did speedpainting before and it usually takes me hours to paint a single miniature. Due to that I had never started to paint an army, yet not a legion (although all the models are there for fifteen or so years now). A big thank you goes to Alex who made me paint the first of many within an hour.  Shocked
I never thought that was posible for me, but here he is - painted, based and varnished:

Entry Nr. 3 (Roman Legionary)
