Any news when we can expect Gallic infantry, Roman mounted commanders and Spartacus troops?

I heard a rumor that Baueda was no longer going to expand their 15mm ranges, in order to concentrate on their 1:48 skirmish game?

Interesting. I see Marco Compagna is now spending most of his time on printable 3D miniatures. So, maybe the combination meant the end of finishing the line. Too bad. I guess I will look elsewhere.

Claudio put a message on FB in March last year to say that 15mm ancients development was no longer economical for them.
Since then, the only release has been some resculpted peasants.

Thanks for the info. That is too bad as they are really nice figures and it would not have taken a whole lot to finish the range.

You think they could updatetheir website to say so and remove all those 'coming soon' ranges.

For the examples in the OP, there is a mounted command pack. Intended as a tribune rather than a consul, but still pretty much what you would get for most armies from most manufacturers.
The Ligurians wouldn't be far off for Gallic infantry, though with so many other decent Gallic ranges around now I can see that it could be a poor economic choice for Baueda.

For Spartacus, I think you need to pillage ranges which have a lot of figures wearing tunics and no trousers* – or even less clothing. Mine link are mostly from Xyston with a lot of their psiloi mixed in with all sorts of others. Xyston wouldn't mix well with Baueda though. Particular advantages are the loose shields allow lots of mixing and matching plus they sell all sorts of shield packs.

War and Empire do a dedicated Spartacus range now, which wouldn't dwarf the Baueda figures so much. I would include figures from their other ranges too for things like the woven shields that they used at least some of the time.
I'm not sure the market is sufficient to support many Slave Revolt ranges.

*Despite recreations such as some of the Osprey pictures, I very much doubt that even freed German and Gallic slaves would go to the bother of getting trousers made, however much they might have seen them as a racial identifier.
