Having recently produced 96 6mm Roman heavy infantry, I switched figure size but kept within the same genre. This time, Roman heavy infantry in 28mm made it onto the worktable. These Renegade Miniatures' figures are armed with gladius and led by an Aventine officer. The raw lead came into my possession from a lead swap with Scott.
Knowing that I would be fielding the Punic Wars collection in their first battle, my plan was to bolster the Roman contingent just in case they were needed to balance the forces. The Romans required no additional assistance in the game. Although these heavies saw no service in that distant battle, they are present for duty in the next contest.
