Having completed the Principes last week and reached the halfway point on this project, I thought I'd put all the legionaries together for a few group photos (and thank you again to Jonathan of Palouse Wargaming Journal for the thumbnail tip):
As with the rest of the project, the figures are all Xyston and the shield transfers by Little Big Men Studios:
There are essentially four legions in all, with the first two lines being hastati, the third principes, with the triarii in the last rank:
The unit out on its own to the left are pilum-armed principes for use in later Republican Roman army lists as I intend for this army to cover all options from Camillan to the later Marian reforms:
All up this represents 106 elements or 424 individual figures. I have certainly had my fill of cutting and positioning LBMS shield transfers for now, although I do think they give the figures an extra lift and are worth the effort:
That's a large part of this project finished, although I estimate I still have around 400 figures to be completed. Thankfully there is a bit more variety in the remaining troop types, including some Italian allies and a penal legion:
Next up some Accensi for use with the early list which involves the last of the LBMS shield designs, for this army at least.
