Roman Trireme/Quinquereme
The Roman war ship patrols the English chanel and is loaded with 30 Roman Legions ready to do battle. Down bellow deck are the slaves pulling hard on the oars to get the ship moving. The ship is nearly 45m long and 6m wide. At the front is a big battering ram used in sea battles. This model is built to 1:44 scale.

The oars from both ship get tangled as the ships make contact.









Battle begins as the Vikings rush on to the Roman ship, thankfully the fog has lifted now…







After taking a big beating the Vikings do a runner. The Romans have only suffered one lose, one man overboard and damage to the sail at the bow.

Nice romano/Greek ship. The stern part with the ram and indications of an eye is very cool.

Nice moc, I've tried myself to make warships like that. However this is not a trireme or quinqereme, this looks more like a pentaconter, which had one line of oars on each side. The trireme, as it's name suggests had 3 rows of oars on each side, and also, as it's name suggests, the quinqereme had 5 rows of oars on each side. Two last things are that unless they weren't going that far, they wouldn't have near that many troops on the ship, and the rowers on the ships (contrary to popular belief) were NOT slaves. Other than that, the construction is very good. All and all 8/10.

Awesome ship, but 30 whole leigons (5,000 men each) will NOT fit in one trireme.

I've always liked ancient navy, and Romans owned with boarding techniques. The ship is great, and I like the oars. The Vikings are bound to lose; they're against Romans!

Really cool! Extra credit for building the hull instead of using pre-fab hull pieces!
