On Friday, I received another Roman Marching Camp from my pal Mike G. of Hallowed Ground Terrain.  In preparation for his release of a new line of Roman Era wargaming terrain, I painted up a second (and complete) set of what is to be released.

It is Mike’s hope that between the painting styles that historical gamers and modelers will see the versatility of the product.  Sticking with tons of historical research, this Marching Camp is painted in mid-earth tones to represent a wide range of topography throughout Europe.

As was common with many Early Imperial Roman Marching Camps, sections of earthen sod were cut from the earth to form an embankment, with exterior ravine.  The embankment was then topped by a wooden palisade.  Well here it is for your review.

This is all of the earthen sections (10), gates(4) and turns(4) that come in the set.  12 sections of fence are included (4 shown).
