I have bought some 15mm Republican Roman Hastati, Triarii and Velites from Museum Miniatures.

Does anyone know if any of the commercially available shield transfers work with these figures with the need for trimming etc.

sorry if I wasn't clear.

I was asking if anyone knew exactly which transfers would fit best as LBMS for example has a number of options available for 15mm, just none specifically for Museum Miniatures.

I have emailed LBMS with shield size details so that may solve the problem.

Here is a response that Steve from LBMS had posted elsewhere that may be applicable:


I always tell customers when they want to use transfers for Spanish and Gauls etc… you will not get very good fits from them on shields they are not designed for. The spines, boss and shield shapes vary so much from manufacturer to manufacturer you will either have to trim a lot or fill quite a few areas.
My recommendation is always to buy some shield packs from a manufacturer I do make Spanish transfers for, such as Gripping Beast, A&A Miniatures or Crusader miniatures and swap out the shields of your OG figures with those and use the transfers. Also this way you get a greater variety of shield shape and transfer design. Shield packs are pretty cheep.
