Roman sets re-run

If Strelets were to re-run its Roman sets in a few years, would you prefer the figures to be in the same grey as the current release or in a different color? Personally, I wouldn't mind a re-run in silver, the same color that Esci used for a re-run of its Romans.

Re: Roman sets re-run

I have to insist on them sticking with gray. My entire Roman army, some 2000 figs by several manufacturers, is currently gray. Every manufacturer except Italeri (silver) & Atlantic (peach) has made their Romans in gray. why change now?

Granted that Orion & Hat have made their's in 2 colors, but there is always gray. We have infantry, cavalry, sailors, auxiliaries, specialists, numerous eras, etc all in gray. It works, leave it alone!

Silver is basically just a shiny gray, but when everything else is in gray, why bother?

Re: Re: Roman sets re-run

Bert, I don't paint my figures either and prefer to keep each army in a similar color, so your point about gray is well taken. With that said, I don't think it would hurt to field future releases in other colors considering that the Romans battled one anohter and this would allow one to easily distinguish one army from another. I'm tired of gray and tan personally.

I thought that the Strelets molds were only good for one production run.

I wish S*R had run the Romans in Silver to begin with.

The figures should in some small way be represented by something of it's original uniform's colors.

For Romans I'd like to find in stores the colors I'm aware of worn by the Legionnaires and Marines:

* Silver (Legionnaire)
* Terracotta Red (Legionnaire)
* Blue (Marines)
* Gray (Auxillaries)

I quit collecting other sets when everything came out in Gray for so long. Luckily colors are getting the attention they deserve.

I'd like to see all colors made, but first in the order above.
