Gangs of Rome Resin Bases

Since I first saw them previewed, I was really excited about the resin fighter and mob cobblestone bases for Gangs of Rome and recently I ordered enough of them to base most of my figures.  I wanted to paint them to roughly match the game’s official terrain mat but didn’t want to spend a lot of time on them as I had a big backlog of figures to paint too!

This is the method I came up with and I’m pretty happy with the results.  The images show the mob bases but I used exactly the same method with the fighter bases – the bigger bases are just easier to photograph as I glue the fighters to their bases before painting them.

Gangs of Rome Arrives!

Gangs of Rome was a game I highlighted on my list of new releases I was most excited about for 2018 and having pre-ordered it just after Christmas (and despite some shipping issues) it finally arrived this week – apart from the game mat which is still AWOL.

In this post I’ll go through all the physical components of the game and discuss how they are packaged and their production qualities.  In later posts I’ll review the rules in depth, show my progress with building and painting the miniatures and scenery and provide after action game reports, but in the meantime let’s see what’s arrived in the pre-order.
