Hastati

Posted by Ochoin on 26 Oct 2020, 04:53

Partly because I need to consolidate my Polybian Roman army (mostly HaT & Zvesda figures) and partly because there was a Newline sale on, I bought another Roman legion : which make a fourth & final one.

The figures painted so far are Hastati. I've been thinking of giving them a Syracusan Greek ally as I have some units of Greek spear & slingers painted from years ago. I'll need to re-visit Newline to bring the slingers up to strength & buy some thureophori & a general.

The Hastati:

8 Triari, 8 Velites, 16 Principes (including command) to go.

Nice of you to say.

Whilst clearly not of the quality of Konrad's Zvevda Polybian Roman figures, they're of a reasonable wargames' standard.

One interesting thing about them, is they match with the HaT figures from this period almost perfectly.
I would have no hesitation about mixing & matching, if I needed to.

Nicely painted figures, that shade of green on the shields makes for a fine sight when they're formed up like that.

Those slingers are terrific little figures, also very nicely painted.

Looks like I ain't the only one who painted the Republican Romans.
Nice figs.

They look nice ranked up. As for the final legion, we all say 'final' purchase and then....
