Forgotten Army Party 4: DBA Romans.
Below: the legions in line. These units from the core of this Roman army.
After that, the troops got modified quite a but. The four elements following received pin javelins and round thumb-tack slields, and so became Auxilia. You will see that the pins have been thrust through the hands of the figures. Then the ends were flattened into spear-points. The shields are unpainted except for the 'bosses'
The velites got the same tratment as the Auxilia - pin javelins and thumbtack shield pushed through their left armes.
8 elements Heavy Foot (Blades)
4 elements of Light-heavies (Auxilia)
2 elements of Velites (Psiloi)
1 element of Light Horse (Light Horse)
2 elements of Heavy horse (Cavalry)
1 element of Artillery (Artillery).
If playing HoTT, I can add a huge Roman soldier figure as Mithras, or Mars, as a 'God' figure.
