I decided to open the Painting Challenge this year by following this edition's theme of 'Gambler/Risk-Taker' and creating a command stand depicting Julius Caesar as he is about to cross the Rubicon River, the act which sparked the Roman civil war. You can see the rest of the post here on the Challenge blog.
These 28mm models are from 1st Corps.
I found some replica Roman dice on Ebay. They just arrived in time for the assembly. I gave this one an Devlan Mud wash to antique it up a bit.
Again, please drop by the Challenge Blog to keep tabs on the goings on there. We have 88 participants from all over the globe this year so there's always something interesting to see and read.
