Gents.

Can you give me suggestions for the best line of figs to do Caesar's Gallic Wars scenarios? 15mm and 28mm reccos please. Anyone ever do this in 10mm?

Thanks

For 15mm Caesarians….check out Baueda and Blue Moon

War and Empire range of ancients by Westwind for 15mm

Soon they will release their 2nd range of ancients that include the Roman Empire and its enemies.

I second War and Empire, lovely figures.

I'll enthusiastically second the recommendation for Blue Moon's excellent 18mm Caesarian Roman, Gallic, and Early German figures. A nice variety of fine sculpts that rank up well and paint quite nicely.

For 28's Foundry are lovely

War and Empire minis are great.

But the Baueda minis do look good too

First corps do nice 28mm

My 10mm Caesar's Gallic War Project maybe of some use. Check out Useful Caesars Gallic War Links. hope it helps.

Take care

Caesarean Romans are one of Old Glory's good 25mm ranges.I can't speak for other than infantry though.

Warlord's 28mm Caesarian's are quite good if you are ok with plastics. They also do Vorenus and Pullo in metal, as well as Caesar of course.

Quite a bargain over Foundry metal.

Appreciate everyone's input. Great tips as always. Thanks, gents.

Another vote for Blue Moon 18s, easy to paint, reasonable prices especially if you are a member of the Old Glory Army.

For the rank and file I used about 90% Old Glory 15s (with the rest Donnington mixed in for variety), and QRF for the centurions, standard bearers and musicians.

Ended up being lively poses at pretty good prices, which is handy when you have to pay international shipping for everything and want about 600 legionaries.

That said, if I were doing a small army I would go for the new Baueda figures.

Cheers,
Aaron
