Thanks gentlemen, for the heads up!
Carlos, I didn't look at the pretorians when searching for the specialized troops in Strelets' offer. Thanks for the informations.
The signum in the pretorian set seems a combination between a signum and an imago (standard with a little bust of the emperor at the top), allowing either a signifer or an imagifer to be portraid. The difference between pretorians, legionaries and auxilia for these troopers, were the animal furs used: lion for pretorian, bear for legion, wolf with the head cut off for auxilia.
There is an optio in the set, but he has the oval republican shield typical for the pretorians.
Hoping for a reply from Strelets,
Roman command set will be released in Big Box format, probably towards the end of this year.
Please be guided accordingly.
Big Box format? Does this mean that those who've been collecting the Strelets sets as they appear will be expected to buy several of them all over again to get the new figures? If so, it's a disgraceful way to treat loyal customers...
glad to hear the command figures will be in production. It completes a range. As i say,before, i expect these command figures will be super sculptures so imho it is worth paying more for.
surplus with big box is good stock for conversions etc. We collectpors gotta bite the bullet sometimes.
If the Roman Command is going to be a big box released with older sets, could the older sets be reissues of the now hard to get "Roman legion at March", "before Battle", and "at Battle"?
