I have some old minifig 15mm Romans, but I need about 40 more Legionaries (Lorica Segmentata + Pilum originally in strips) to get a playable army.

Does anyone have any they would be prepared to sell ?

Painted or unpainted is fine

Good luck mate, I've been trying to get hold of these for years……..:(

Lewisgunner08 Jan 2013 2:10 a.m. PST

You might try Peter pig Romans as those are the nearest in scale to fitting with the old strips.

korsun0 Supporting Member of TMP08 Jan 2013 2:13 a.m. PST

Interesting, thanks for that.

Or warrior MIniatures, these are small as well.

Pete; put up a picture of the ones you need, I do have some old minifigs but lets make sure we are talking about the right one's first!

I think the Battle Honours Early Imperial Romans are very similar to the old MiniFig legionaires

korsun0 Supporting Member of TMP08 Jan 2013 7:13 a.m. PST

oldbob, if OP doesn't want them, I'd be interested if they were the right ones……

Guthroth08 Jan 2013 7:19 a.m. PST

Thanks guys.

Oldbob, I'll pop a photo up tonight from home

I have a box with plenty of "minifigs" "Asgard" and some "Essex" in their, been trying to unload for years!

CooperSteveOnTheLaptop08 Jan 2013 8:30 a.m. PST

I've got a number of the 25s if anyone needs them

Guthroth08 Jan 2013 12:48 p.m. PST

These are the little devils I need -

Sorry to get your hopes up. I have 26 in Lorica Segmentata standing but holding a lance not a Pilum. Close but not the same one as you have!

korsun0 Supporting Member of TMP08 Jan 2013 11:59 p.m. PST

I have them; they were sold as praetorian guard..mine are painted as PG.

Guthroth09 Jan 2013 11:29 a.m. PST

Oldbob, I think I might still be interested.

I have a few like that as well, and 15mm I can paint the top of the spear in a metal and they would be acceptable.

Do you want to drop me an email off list ?

korsun0, I don't suppose you are interested in selling yours ?


colin knight09 Jan 2013 12:10 p.m. PST

Amazed these still are sought after. I tipped all my old Minifigs into the bin years ago. Could have made some money!

Stewbags Inactive Member09 Jan 2013 3:32 p.m. PST

I have a few Sassanid strip minifics armoured cav if anyone would like them. Only a couple mind but free to a good uk home.

bruntonboy10 Jan 2013 1:49 a.m. PST

I recon the old strip figures would still sell today if they were back in production, especially the renaissance and 18th century ranges.

korsun0 Supporting Member of TMP10 Jan 2013 2:23 a.m. PST

Guthroth – probably not at this stage……..:)

Bruntonboy – I agree, but apparently it isn't a possibility…..:(

spartansi Inactive Member12 Jan 2013 11:04 a.m. PST

Only read this forum by chance so registered, but I think I have 20 of these plus 4 command, unpainted except flesh. Also have many auxillia, balista+crew, and several cavalry.

Guthroth12 Jan 2013 12:48 p.m. PST

Hi spartansi

I'm still looking for some, would you like to email me ?

guthroth at colanhomm dot org



Stewbags Inactive Member26 Jan 2013 3:29 p.m. PST

Guthroth, email sent that may interest you.

Guthroth31 Jan 2013 11:26 a.m. PST

Thanks to everyone who replied.

I now have enough to finish my DBMM army and maybe some more on the way !

Panfilov Inactive Member21 Feb 2013 10:48 p.m. PST

The Auxillia are VERY HTF; I have some Macedonians to trade…

wballard Inactive Member22 Sep 2013 5:16 p.m. PST

I know this is resurrecting an old thread but if anyone is interested there's a current listing on Ebay for about 345 Celts from this line. Description has 250 melee and 95 skirmishers.

These are not my figures.
