A squad of "Space Roomans"

See Ma’k Morin’s blog post about Roomans here.

Yesterday I painted 13 that Ma’k converted to “space Roomans” by combining parts of a Ral Partha Rooman with the body of a Reaper science fiction figure.  I think the conversion was quite effective.

I cut some of the arms and re-glued them to give a little more variety to the posing.  It was a primitive conversion job, but from wargaming distance, they look okay.

Beware space farers when you hear the fear-inspiring battle cry of the Romman marines:  ”Roop! Roop! Adoop!”

  1. Really thrilled to see how these came out and how you individualized the troop – or are yours a mob or a court? In any case, well done Buck – ROOP ROOP ADOOP!

    I think that Roomans are organized in Roman terms: cohorts, maniples, centuries, etc. So a squad of space Roomans would be called a century (for tradition’s sake), a platoon would be called a maniple, and a company would be a cohort. Yes, I understand the maniples and cohorts may not have existed at the same time, but these are Roomans. They do what they want.
