Romans before battle

Hi guys,

last night I started to paint the Romans before battle. Really great figures who do very well in the second line of my Roman diorama. Good luck with selling this set Strelets! If it sells well I hope we can have such sets for other periods too

cheers

Re: Romans before battle

I'm hoping for a big-box Roman set. I suspect I'll get them all anyway but I thought I'd make one more plea.

Personally, I was always anoyed when a box of soldiers had only three figures marching, on gaurd or just standing at attention. So I welcome this new style of set whole heartedly

Re: Re: Romans before battle

Hi Andrew,

a big box with legionaries and extra sprues of special poses is really a good idea. Street-working, Priests with a sheep, casualties etc. Something I would like to see. And of course the same for Roman's enemies!

cheers

Re: Re: Re: Romans before battle

I would need (at least) 5, better 10 different Roman Big Box sets, to depict the most famous emperors and Generals with their staff and court, Roman civilians, merchants etc. IMHO, every army needs a decent command set and I must have 10 Roman armies with hardly any central command.

Yes! Yes! I agree

Roman command figures, please!!!

and while we are at it

Why not run the set in two or more differnet colors, so if we don't get a similar set of opponents, we can always fall back on the old RCW.

I would also like to suggest that Strelet's also borrow a good idea from Hat's Alexander range, and do a Roman Army set, consisting of one single sprue from each of the Roman sets. You could do this for the Normans, Moslem and Nopoleonic series too.
