The Glory of Rome is a project on LEGO CUUSOO created by mminnitt. It was created on February 10th, 2012. The model in the main picture is a historical set featuring the British queen Boudicca on a chariot fighting the Roman invaders.

I will not be updating this theme or adding any new sets. This should be obvious due to the last update being a year ago but I thought I should make it official. If I thought there was any chance of the sets passing review I would dig out the part-finished work and post it anyway, however after seeing that the only set to pass review was made by a Cuusoo employee I really doubt it. I mean even the Western town was shot down. Thanks to the 2,526 others who thought that Roman Lego would rock - now our hopes must be that Lego are already working on Roman sets and it gets made anyway...

Thanks everyone, we gave it a good shot together! :)

  • New Sets* ICENI CHARIOT ATTACK - Can Boudicca and her brave soldier rescue their companion from his Roman captors? Charging in on her war chariot with it's Scythe wheels should tip the odds in her favour! Comes with Queen Boudicca, 2 Celtic Warriors, 2 Roman Soldiers, Guard Dog, War Chariot and Roman Campsite.

If anyone has anything they'd really like to see in the sets then drop me a comment. You can also follow the progress of designing the sets and characters at my blog here:

If you like this theme why not check out Spiderpudel's project:

  • !*!*!* As people keep asking: The sets are made in LDD (Lego Digital Designer) with additional work such as the boxes being done with 3DS Max 2012 and post processed in Photoshop CS5 *!*!*!*


ROMAN WARSHIP. Originally titled "Trireme" I've now adopted a more generic name for this vessel. Manned by 4 brave Romans (as well as a few unfortunate oarsmen when I design the figs) this huge ship carries the might of the Imperium to far off lands!


GLADIATOR BATTLE PACK. Probably needs a more Roman name but I think this sums it up! Fairly large for a battlepack but I've done all of them like this, with a bit of 'meat' rather than just figures. Some people have pointed out that the gate needs a wider base; ideally yes it does. That said all of my designs take into account that Lego will be doing a design pass on whatever I make, so the sets are more of a concept than a finished product.

Rome2 Modelled a placeholder version the Standard Bearer's wolfskin headgear. Havent yet worked out how I'll make it look like there is a metal helmet underneath but that's something I'll tackle in the coming weeks.


Made a start on a Caeser design, of which there will eventually be two (one in armour, one in toga). Not digging the way the red toga hangs on the legs at the moment, so I'll lower that down on the left in the next version. Very WIP at the moment, but let me know what you guys think!
