Roman Infantry in 6mm


I had one packet of Baccus Republican Roman legionnaires in the The Lead Pile and inspired by a recent Commands & Colors game added these 96 figures into the painting queue.
All of my other Republican Roman legionnaires wield either the pila or spear.  As a change, these fellows carry the gladius.  With 96 figures across 24 strips, I was able to field four stands of medium infantry for the game.  All figures in this quartet of stands received the red treatment; red tunics and red shields.
That was a worthwhile diversion!

  3. As my path into the hobby was through 28's, I can't help but keep being fascinated by the visual results that can be achieved in smaller scales. Loads of details when you zoom in, like the little horn blowers on each stand. I can only imagine what impressively sized battle can be run on a standard wargaming table when using 6mm! Now I'm taking a leap into 15's, who knows where that might end...

    1. Appreciate your comments, Soren!
      We both know the answer to your philosophical question.

  4. Very impressive en masse, Jonathan. There were a few 6mm games at Enfilade! and the massed look indeed looked nice on the table.
