Now it is on to the next project.

Finished the first major project for 2017. Expansion of the Republican Romans. After painting about another thousand the army now totals 300+ velites, 640 Hastati, 640 Principes, 280 Triarii, and 106 cavalry with a few spares. This was done to provide the full Roman army for Asculum without having to provide substitute figures as I have done in the past. The photos show them arrayed as a single legion of 4200 infantry and 300 cavalry. The figure to man ratio is about 1:2.5. All figures are from Rapier Miniatures. The entire force will fit in two of the plastic parts boxes that I use for storage and transport. Click on photos to enlarge them.
