Ok, I’ve added a ninth and final figure to my Roman tavern/street diorama. There is pretty much no more space to add another mini, at least not in a way that would supplement the scene rather than detract from it.
This fellow is peering around the main character’s shoulder, lending emphasis to that figure’s gaze & shout. I’m not sure if he’s a patron of the bar, the landlord, or what, but I knew he belonged back in there. He’s a well fed guy, so I gave him a nice palla to wear to further emphasize his affluence.
Here is the scene from a few different focal points:
I now need to add just a few more scenic & narrative details, then finish the plinth & construction elements. I’m already feeling a bit lost, as this project ended up taking a lot more time and energy than I had anticipated. It was extremely fun throughout, or I would have called it quits far earlier. I think the fact that I didn’t get bogged down in blending or detailed textures or anything like that helped the whole thing feel brisk & productive. I definitely want to do this sort of project again.
Keep an eye out for another ancient Roman diorama in the future, as I have put in an order for some new miniatures. The brand, Footsore Miniatures, was recommended by Kuribo, a faithful friend of ToadChapel.
