The Commagene

The Commagene, bordered on the east by the Euphrates River and on the west by the Taurus Mountains, existed as an ideal buffer state between the two great powers, Rome and Parthia. During the Julio-Claudian period of rule, the Commagene experienced several periods of domination by Rome followed by brief periods of independence making them an ideal enemy/ally for the current project.

The miniatures

From the remnants of two previous sales, there were enough elements to create a collection of twelve. These required some repainting to render some uniformity among the troop types. This task offered some valuable experience, especially mixing colour for tunics and highlighting colours not usually chosen as a final step.
