28mm Republican Roman Infantry

Two bases of Republican Roman principes and one base of velites for my 'tan shield' legion. These are Old Glory figures that have been sitting primed but idle on my painting table for over a year. Painting on Twitch has put my painting productivity into overdrive, so I'm starting to get to older projects that got stalled.

These were painted to match some triarii and velites I painted 18 months ago, but I couldn't resist the urge to 'dial it up to 11' and put some extra touches on the officer's faces, cloaks and the wolf skins on the velites and standard bearers. Based up for Hanibal at the Gates to match the rest of my Romans.

These add fifteen figures to this year's painting totals. Next up a unit of Oscan/Campanian hoplites also for Hanibal at the Gates.

Very nice, AJ. I'm always surprised to hear people denigrate Old Glory figures. I think they have good detail and great animation.

Great stuff AJ, I really like some of the old glory figures, I have built several armies with them, and have lots of napoleonic figures, they are spot on for mass produced big armies, lots of variations etc.
