Warlord Scorpion Battery














Here are a few photos of a Warlord Scorpion battery for my Early Imperial Roman army. I've had these figures for a while but have only just finished painting the plastic set. The scorpion and crew on the far right in the above photos is the metal Warlord model for comparison. Apart from being great value these models and figures are really detailed with various options for helmets and bare heads and very dynamic, animated poses. I really like this plastic set of three scorpions and six crew, they are just what you need if you're planning an assault on a hill fort or fighting a Roman Civil War! Unfortunately they don't seem to be available at the moment as a set of three - hopefully they will make a reappearance very soon.

  10. Thanks Monty, they would have been pretty nasty! I've got a photo of a Celt warrior at Maiden Castle whose spine was severed by one - pretty gruesome!

  13. Thanks Christopher and Dave. It would have been nasty to be on the receiving end, considering each century had one of these each!
