|Four figures in the same pose|
Whilst looking for the best buy on my actual gladiators I came across "A Call to Arms" Romans on ebay and as they were fairly cheap (about £4.50 for 16 figures) i thought why not.
The set consists of sixteen figures in four poses, with one of each pose per sprue.
|Boring rear view.|
|Second most satisfactory|
|Ans the obligatory boring rear shot.|
|More or less acceptable after a head twist.|
I wanted a dozen figures for the 'unit, which would leave me four figures spare
Here's a couple of the less-than satisfactory types on which I've have to turn their heads to the right, rather than leaving them face-on with shield and weapon outstretched.
|Same figures, different view.|
Their sword-arms were also bent into a more acceptable figure too,
|Last two, not too bad|
You'll notice that I haven't painted nay of the lighting bolts or eagle wings onto the shields, my reasoning being two-fold.
1) I'm a crap painter
2) They're only fancy tokens after all.
Finally here's a group shot of them:
That's it for this week, next week I'll be trying to finish the figures I started last week. These legionaries have only had their bases painted up and they were actually painted months ago!
