I just picked up a box of these little beauties from my local hobby store. Superb detail and nice active poses with simply tons of options. See the full photo survey here; link

Oh Anton…I laughed at your "need" comment….none of us "need" this stuff….LOL..thanks for the chuckle and the review. I will have to get these AND…I note they also have new WWII Italian infantry up for pre-order!

Interesting…..Nice looking figures. How far could they be used past 476? Would they work for Arthurian Briton or later DA warriors for the continent perhaps with some shield and head swaps from other kits?

These probably would carry on into the early Byzantine period as well as acting as some of the better-armed "barbarians". The large choice of helmets really helps in that regard. The only thing that unavoidably makes these into Romans is the darts clipped to the inside of the shield, I don't know of anyone else carrying them that way. Careful painting and attaching the shield close to the body to hide the darts would likely solve that problem (or, if you are like me, you would simply raid your "bits-box" and use other shields from old kits).

I have enough Roman legionaries, but I'll have to pick up a box or 2 of these at some stage thumbs up

>Careful painting and attaching the shield

… or just using a knife to cut them away …


Nice minis. Have the sprues on my table now. WA is never short on head options :-)
