House of Batiatus

Well, not really, it´s an as near as possible Repro of  Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus Batiatus´s ( Vatia ? ) house from the Spartacus series but the living area  hasn´t got the Atrium impluviatum  style roofing. I was going to add a wall to what would be the Training area but it fits better into the town as it is and can double up as part of a Shopping street.
The railings are made from strips of Card.
The pillars made from dowling pegs and rings of copper wire glued to Card, then the peg glued on top.
The whole town so far. A Forum, a house with  Atrium displuviatum style roofing, Lupinarium planned....an old Arena to upgrade...how big can this get.?

  6. Ave,
    This is truly a wonderful thing. You could actually use this to represent one of the cities sacked by Boudicca's lot or transfer it to Italy and have it as a target of one of many armies.
