I like them.

It hardly matters what they are like from that angle- you can only see shields…
They look good though.

I like them.The frontal shot is impressive-with the scutum presented,they show a very limited target,which I'm sure is the effect they were after.You gotta feel bad for the musician and standard bearer,though.

They look great, nice paint job on the shields too!

I wonder how they compare with Xyston figs……

Great blog post and pics, Scott! I am very impressed with the new Blue Moon Late Republican Roman, ancient German and Gallic lines, and I am looking forward to their future releases with great anticipation.

@ Steve -

The Blue Moon figures are somewhat larger than Xyston, at least their early lines. I use Xyston figures for my Numidian, Cretan and Spanish skirmish troops, and IMHO the two lines work perfectly well as separate units of the same army. I don't plan on fielding Blue Moon and Xyston figures together in the same unit, however.

Cheers,
Scott

These are nice figures with a great paintjob!
Steve, as Scott said. The Xyston gallic archers and slingers (the only Gauls i have) are smaller as are the Numidians. On the other hand the Macedonian Phalangites are a good match as are the carthagian Liby-Phoenecian Spearmen. Xyston Romans are a bit larger.

Are they closer to 1/72 scale than 15mm?

eibreh07 Jan 2013 12:55 a.m. PST

17mm foot to eye, 20mm to Top of the Helmet. And the figures are slim, very nice proportions.

Old Pete07 Jan 2013 9:53 a.m. PST

Xyston are big for 15mm, so are Blue Moon small 1/72 scale, rather than large 15mm figures.

Nice work! Why did Blue Moon omit helmet crests, though?

Same question. Why did Blue Moon omit helmet crests, though?
