Appeasing the 'dice gods'?

 As a break from painting fighting figures for my Carthaginian army in the Punic Wars project I've completed a Republican Roman vignette base using the Agema Miniatures sacrificial bull and associated figures and altar. Think of it as a light hearted attempt at appeasing those pesky 'dice gods' who seem to have deserted me big time in our post lockdown games!

I recently received two tents from Magister Militum for my planned marching camp bases, a Legionary tent and an officer's tent, and I'll add this vignette to those camp ones in due course. I'd like to add the off duty Republican Roman figures from Foundry in due course, but finances took a sizeable hit recently care of the Vauban Fort purchase! Next month perhaps?

    1. You get what you pay for though with these capricious 'dice gods' I'd guess.

  8. Looks great, although I agree, some Sacred Chickens are needed as well. Perhaps for the next base?!

    1. Given the way my performance has gone since lockdown I'd say more bulls, chickens won't do the business.
