Hi guys I have 3rd DBA size Roman Punic Warszarmies by Chariot miniatures and have the itch to add a few more.

Any strong cases for other lines in 15mms?

OldGlory has a nice line of PW Romans. Forged in Battle just had a kickstarter that has some noice looking Romans as well.

Xyston as usual are awesome too

I use Chariot, Strategia Nova and also have some old minifigs. My favourite is Strategia Nova, because of the pose variety they have.

QRF are pretty nice I have them and Chariot. The QRF sale is on btw.

ancientsgamer22 Jan 2014 8:22 a.m. PST

Xyston for sure.

Oh Bugger22 Jan 2014 12:47 p.m. PST

Xyston are nice but they are very big compared to Chariot.

For smaller size figures Essex are nice.

I think I might go with QRF for variety. Xyston are nice would dwarf my Carthaginians and Chariot Romans.

Any thoughts on Black Hat? Too chunky to work with my present?

Strategia Nova? Good?

Old Glory good if I need lots, but I dont need that many Velites and Triari. Good old economy of scale.

What about warmodeling from Spain I think?

Wow I found the strategia Nova site and found their 15mm Punic Wars. Very nice, I am going with those.

I guess they were the old miniature wars figures bought out by strategia tactica out of Italy. Nova took them over. Great variety with at least 4 different in each pack, along with attached pila and shields.

Here is the link to republican romans.

Yes, Strategia Nova is the new name under which the old Strategia e Tattica trades. They are the Miniature Wars figures.

I really like them and at 2.5 euro a pack they are pretty good value as well, which is an added bonus…

Cheers,
Aaron

I use a range of Essex, Museum and Donnington and I'll be looking at Old Glory. I would use Xyston but they are more 18mm.

GGouveia23 Jan 2014 10:20 p.m. PST

Any thoughts on Warmodeling the look very good on their site. Anyone know how they fit with other lines?

phil bagnall24 Jan 2014 7:28 a.m. PST

Warmodelling are Xyston size, ie big 15mm (really 18mm). Nice figures, the horses I have looked a bit stretched & elongated in bare metal but look fine painted. I use their kneeling triarii alongside my other QRF foot troops, and the difference in size isn't too noticeable due to the pose.
I keep the velites from the 2 sources quite separate on table, WM are noticeably bigger.

Thanks Phil, if I had to redo it I would go with warmodelling. Great figures with excellent variety. However large like Xyston.
