Wheat cutters and thrashers. This lot will also make good rioters or additions to Spartacus´s mob.

Oxen and Aratrum. Wether this Looks like the type of plough that would have been used in Roman times I cannot discover. It´s a bit difficult to put together, the handles of the plough don´t fir exactly into the bods Hands but with a bit of bending it does work. The Oxen come with the usual rings on thier backs for attaching the yolk, but I´ve made my own yolk. .

  1. nice models - i like how you've painted them. earthy, naturally historic colours. (i would've ruined them by painting them bright and garish - knowing me)
