Ostia, one of the greatest harbours of the late Roman Empire it started as a fishing village and started to grow as a naval harbour in the third century B.C., to help fend off the pirates in the Tyrrhenian sea (most likely Etruscans) a garrison fort was built near the city. It continued to grow as any city of the Republic and later the Empire and its harbour received a great expansion under Trajan. Ruins of Ostia Antica survived until present day and feature some impressive mosaics, streets and remains of diverse insulae.

Ostia during the Imperial era:

Insulae in Ostia:

It's a bit difficult to say what Ostia might have looked during the 3rd Century B.C. due to the great expansion it suffered and all the changes in the city planning so my version is approximative and small scale as expected, I believe it was still a minor settlement at this time. I hope to remake it later with props that are more accurate to our era but that'll do for now.

Mediolanum, built by the Insubres tribe circa 600 B.C. and captured by the Romans circa 200 B.C. Mediolanum was an ideal trade center due to it's localisation and fertile plains. The city was greatly expanded during the Imperial era becoming one of the most populated cities of the Empire and it became the capital of the Western Roman Empire under Diocletian. Centuries of Roman expansion left barely nothing of the original Insubrian city so I improvised with the props we have to our disposition.

Thanks, I forgot to mention that you can view the fullscreen images by clicking on them, it's hard to tell what's going on on a small image.

You're exaggerating quite a bit, the Sceners Guild thread in the Taleworlds forum is where the magic is made, posts like this make my scenes look like playmobil forts :)
There are some mods with impressive scenes too, 1257 AD, Twilight of The Sun King, Brytenwalda, Peloponnesian War, 1429 La Guerre de Cent Ans, etc... And of course our own scener KickingJoub made some great scenes like Lugdunum, the garrison fort of Tusculum, Troy, Roman Villa and event maps like Chaeronae in which we reenacted the battle fought between the Athenian and Boeotian coalition against Philip and Alexander which was a lot of fun (except that I played with the Greeks and they lost, again :D).
I just recently learned how to make scenes from A to Z and we are really lacking props so it's still nowhere near what I want it to look like, as with everything we've done we'll work on improving it as much as possible.
