All That Unbelieve Shall Be Crushed Under the Wheels of the Vessel of Judgement

Crushing enemies is the main purpose of the Vessel of Judgement.

As the ruined remains of an enemy warmachine and discarded equipment attest-the Vessel is very good at what it does.

The debris of the unfaithful litter its path.

The mighty Vessel of Judgement is a monster of a warmachine in the Armies of Menoth.
Enemy warriors and warmachines are no match as the ruins of their equipment so readily shows.

This massive piece a a plastic and metal construct from Privateer Press. The ruined equipment are various pieces from several manufacturers as well as a lot of scratch build "scrap."

Finally finished! Now to see how good it is in battle with Richard's Menoth Warmachine Army.

Almost there Vessel of Judgement WIP

Plowing through the wreckage of an enemy warmachine, the Vessel marches to victory.

This is not the normal base covering for Richard's Menoth forces-I decided to show the Vessel conquering and enemy base that will slowly be turned into a Menoth style.

This massive piece is plastic and metal, the scrap pieces are also metal and plastic-more to come when she is finished.

Some day we might be Legionaires too

Supporting the legionaires of Rome were the lighter armed and armored Auxiliary troop.  Those of exceptional skill might be able to join the regulars of the legion.

Two cohorts of the legion with Auxiliary support, ready to expand an protect the empire.
These are more of the 25mm metal Minifig pieces that I never finished as more quality pieces came on line and my interest in Ancients wained in the late 1970's.

We come for Spartacus!

Ready to crush the upstart Spartacus, two cohorts of the Roman City Guard advance towards Mt. Vesuvius.

I just watched the 1960's version of "Spartacus" and decided to trot out these old Minifig Romans that I started in the 1980's.

As you can see I never did finish them, although they did see a couple of battles-a rare event for me as I prefer to use fully painted pieces.

The detail of Minifig pieces from 1970's designs was very basic by modern standard, but they were very inexpensive allowing for good sized armies in most historic periods.
There are all 25mm metal pieces.

Spells are fine but a big axe cool too!

Druids are know for the nature spells but Wald Wache,  Druid Wilder, knows there are times when a the use of a great big axe is needed to make its mark.

As a member of the forces of Circle of Orboros, Wald Wache takes her combat duties very seriously. Only a fool would underestimate her power.
Wald Wache is a metal piece from Privateer Press.

Yo, Ho, Ho and A Cleaving Blow

Unojo Polla is no stranger to hand to hand combat, he makes his living at it!

Unojo has never met a problem where his massive hand axe has been at a loss to solve.

While he prefers to take prisoners to add to his press ganged crew, he is not adverse to "trimming off" a few parts if necessary.
Unojo is a metal piece from the Warmachine Mercenary Pirates line of Privateer Press.
