Even MORE Romans!

Another stand of Roman infantry completed. This one is again mostly Italeri figures with a couple of Miniart ring-ins, all using the shields from the Italeri set for consistency.

I also indulged in a little surgery to convert one of the ridiculous poses Italeri have a penchant for, to something a little more realistic and useable in a shield-wall formation. I also repositioned the head of the figure 2nd from the left in the front row so he's actually looking ahead at the approaching enemy and not off to the side as he was originally sculpted.

Stupid pose just inviting a javelin to the chest!
Same pose with a little surgery to turn the arm  around

The whole formation with the converted arm figure front row, closest to camera.


  1. A great looking unit, love the shields as well!

  2. The unit looks fantastic - and the conversion is great as well. I've been put off buying the Italeri set just because of the daft poses
