Giant of Hong Kong Romans: Scouting

Here's a couple of shots depicting a band of Roman soldiers patrolling the woods somewhere on the Frontier

All of the pictures posted the past week which feature landscaping were accomplished through the use of leftover terrain/landscape from old train layouts. I'm glad I kept them because they've come in handy the past few years for projects like this. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Non-Giant of Hong Kong 2-horse Chariot Yellow-Green-Red and

Here we have a Giant-like chariot but with only two horses. The chariot itself is slightly smaller as well as the horses being a different sculpt than the ubiquitous Giant steeds. Also, I've added some pics of what I call the Roman Patrol (Roamin' Romans?) LOL  Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Here we see that the harness assembly easily detaches from the chariot body

The 2-horse chariot appears slightly smaller

The horses are different sculpts in this non-Giant chariot

Non-Giant of Hong Kong Chariot Red-Red and Roman Sword Practice

Typical practice for Giant was to have the chariot frame in one color, while the separate filigree' overlay was in another color. This on is red-on-red. Also, underneath the chariot body where the word 'Giant' would normally be is just a blank space. Was this perhaps Helen of Toy? Crown? I have no idea. As it is a clone of Giant it of course fits in with the other chariots in the stable so that's all that really counts with me. 

Also, I've included yet another photo shoot, this time of an outpost practicing their swordsmanship under the watchful eye of their instructor. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
