Re: Box-Art Bavarian infantry in attack

There is and has been some great box art for plastic warriors in 1/72...and some which is distinctly less good. The Airfix Cuirassiers is one case of bizarre historical inaccuracy; another from the same company which I always wonder at is the Romans set; a Hollywood-style Centurion with drawn sword in the middle of Rome (surely an arrest-able offence??) appears imminently to be mown down by a four-horse chariot which has escaped from the Coliseum. Not a legionary, auxiliary archer or pilum in sight.

A great contrast to some of the very fine box art that various artists produced for Airfix over the years. What were they thinking of when they produced this Romans box??

If you want a thread on box-art, how about this one: Prussian dragoons without saber might be a topic. Fortunately, the masters do show them with their blades.:wink:
