Nicely done if a bit too 'cartoon time' for my tastes.

He's a bit of a "Space Legionary". Kids would like him; he'd be fun in 54mm.

A absolute ABOMINATION, , a real Shocker, bloody fantasy armour and sheild. For F sake can they just get it correct, there is enough great information out there, this is a complete travisity, an insult to historical gamers and lazy pure ignorance of their market.

My two cents

I had a look on the Anvil site- it say he's a fantasy Roman legionary, I don't think they ever intended him to be historically accurate. Kids would love him- give them a year or two and they'll be buying Aventine, Victrix or whatnot, studying Latin and fretting about how line exchange worked. ;-)

Might get some for use in SoB&H or OG&M, I like the look for those. Not that useful for direct historicals, but if you go with a fantasy bent to them, that looks like a great take on a fantasy Roman.

And I have been thinking about a Codex: Alera themed warband…

Complete fatansy could never be used for any historical army. Am i seeing a pattern on his right hand ???

Kind of hate to bump this, but did these ever become available? I've checked off and on since they were announced, but they haven't appeared on the store…
