Legions en masse

All four legions of nasty grinding efficient destroyers of all that is civilised. Eventually I'll add another 24 Hastati to each legion so as to get the proportions right. And then I'll add enough Principes to be able to "morph" into Marian legions. But right now, I want to be Hannibal and wipe them out.


  1. Those look fabulous! Great to see all 4 legions complete, and matching. Congratulations.

    Will you also be doing more velites, later?

  2. Hi Simon, I probably will at one point, for the sake of completeness. The thing is, the way Tactica II plays out means that an army doesn't need that many skirmishers. I have enough already to cover the entire frontage of the legions; by the time any more get to do anything, the heavies are in combat. But I'll do them if I get some spare time in between other things.

    Cheers and thanks for the comment

  3. Very impressive! It looks like the killing machine the legions represented!

  4. Cheers, Phil, that's the look I was after.

  5. Wow! Fantastic to see so many Romans arrayed for battle. It would take me until next year to paint so many!
