SO... another week and another impetus base full of lovely Romans. These are a curious bunch. I bought them from A&A miniatures and as far as I know they are the only ones who cover this period. n fact when I first saw the pictures I wasn't even convinced they were Romans!
Certainly these figures do have a certain charm. They remind me of the goons in the flash Gordon movie. Something almost sci-fi-camp about those helmets.
The figures themselves are a bit big and clumsy looking. Having said that they do have character and paint up ok. Some of the faces are a wee bit deformed though that may be moulding issues.
They would also be ideal for fighting the early pagan goths. I'm still musing over which barbarians I like best and early goths are the front runners.
Next up should be late romans. Only problem is the infamous BTD still haven't delivered. Going by some bloggers I could be waiting for up to three years. Seriously ..
