My photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Prepping Sea Peoples from Caesar's Set H048

Hi Chaps,

I wanted to explore some new (which in fact are very old) aspects of history. Well, that was partly the reason, because I felt the need to get my hands on Caesar's set of Sea Peoples which looked terrific.

I then persuaded my wallet to give in, and buy me the set, and after that, it was a matter of time before starting their preparation.

The photos below show only the prepping stages of these nicely sculpted figures, so this is only a W.I.P post.

At the time being, I'm painting a lot of 25 figures on one go (which is a completely new approach I decided to follow, since I'm a lazy git and can't be bothered into painting many figures on one go).

So, stay tuned.

Have a nice Tuesday all!



  1. Good stuff. What will you be using them for? (Why individual bases?)


  2. Hi Nick, I was thinking into using them for skirmish games (raids, ambushes etc), based on some rules I found recently. I still need to paint some Egyptians as well though. :)

  3. Hi Thanos, great to see you painting up some more figures.
    I recently listened to a podcast from the guys at Ancient Warfare Magazine where they were discussing the Hittites, they mentioned that the Sea Peoples were partly responsible for the collapse of the Hittite Kingdom - I think?
    Who else were they fighting besides the Egyptians?

    1. Hi John!Outside Egypt, they also frequently assaulted the coastal regions of the Hittite Empire, the Levant and other areas around the Mediterranean coast, including Greece (Mycenaeans). They were the catalyst in what we call ''The Bronze Age Collapse'' (see link)

    2. Thanks mate, my history in the ancient eras can be a bit sketchy :-)

  4. That book looks very interesting! Does it have many color plates with uniforms in it! The ones on the cover look really nice!
