A little while ago I completed six battle groups of triarii for
my Mid-Republican Roman army. This meansthat now I don't have to keep borrowing Dave and Clive’s figures every time I want
to fight in theperiodbefore50BCE.
These guys got there first run out a while ago against Simon’s Pyrrhic
pikes and scraped a marginal victory!However, when packing them in the makeup box which
I use to transport them, I noticed a fundamental flaw in the construction. I
have left the offensive spear a tad too long. They don’t fit in to the box nicely
and they have to be lying down. Aside from this minor hiccup I am quite
pleasedwith the end result, even the
rendering of what is supposed to be a wolf on theirshieldsisquiteacceptable.
