The forerunner to the much more capable velites, the leves were tasked with forming a skirmish line in front of the hastati. Unarmoured and without shield they are rated as inferior in DBMM, but at the cost of one point per element it is possible to field a lot of them. To that end I have completed twenty-eight elements or fifty-six figures, although there probably won't be that many occasions when they will all be fielded together:
As with the remainder of the army, the figures are all Xyston. Possibly not the most interesting but as detailed as the subject matter allows:
There are four different poses in each pack of eight figures, and I have tried to vary that a little more through use of four different tunic colours:
That's the bulk of the main infantry now completed. I have some Cretan archers off the production line next, followed by a penal legion utilising captured Gallic equipment. By my reckoning I have now completed exactly six hundred figures toward this army, leaving me with around two hundred to go.
To keep myself sane I have also commenced work on the first dozen of a couple of hundred GHQ WWII ships I have had languishing on the lead pile for a few years now, and hope to be able to post a few photos of them within the next month. 15mm is small enough, but sticking cranes and painting lifeboats on 1:2400 ship models is most definitely a change of pace.
