Romans

Just a short message to comment that I like the look of your Roman and Auxillary Infantries produced along your new minibox style. With this particular period I already have the figures produced by Airfix (Claudian Invasion of Britain), Esci/Italeri and Hat but I am sure to find room for a cohort or two of your figures. The minibox concept works particularly well with this era since the speciality Officers, Muscians, Standard Bearers are already well catered for by other companies and so are almost certainly in the collections of anybody with an interest in this army.

I look forward to adding these figures to my ever growing collection.

Best regards,


Malcolm

Re: Romans

Roman Officers/specialists well covered in previous sets.. i disagree a bit, there are already some good standard-bearer and centurio poses.. But i still miss:

- Standard bearer with mask-helmet (one with the types of sport cavalry helmets)
- MUSICIANS: there is only this tubican from Hat and one generic figure in which you can put a cornicen.. BUT NO DECENT CORNICEN FOR THE IMPERIAL PERIOD
-MORE HIGH ROMAN OFFICERS_ we have only a pair from Revell and hat (punic!). Cavalry officers and specialist as well missing.

Let´s see what is coming with Alanger and Zvezda legionaries

Re: Re: Romans

Perhaps Valdemar should do some individual personality figures of famous ancient commanders???
I'd certainly be interested in buying them, even at quality prices.

Re: Re: Romans

For the Standard Bearer in Sports type mask I painted the face silver. As to musicians I also use the Italeri Cornicern, as j musician I think it dosen't matter that he wears mail since the Standard Bearers and the Centurions also wear mail. Also don't forget the Italeri mounted Julius Ceasar figure as depicting a General for this period. I also like the foot officer holding helmet in the Esci/Italeri Romans although admittedly this figure looks a lot like the Tribune in the Osprey book dealing with the Carthaginian wars.

Best regards,

I have a lot of Roman command figures in metal from Art-miniaturen. They have a good range of high Roman command and other good Imperial Roman stuff.
