About five years ago, I got a sample sprue of Warlord's 28mm Imperial Romans to review. These were among the first of the 28mm historical plastics. After the review, these fellows sat on my shelf for awhile. Then I traded them to Justin. Then they were traded back to me. So I finally decided to build them.
There are six bases of legionnaires. A couple of the figures had been previously built to populate as DBA camp but the rest were brand new. Assembly was easy and painting was a snap. These are very nice figures.
As the sprue was a sampler, I did not have an decals for the shields. I decided to try painting them. The pattern is reasonable enough but was too small relative to the shield size. Oh well, a good lesson!
I also acquired a 28mm Warlords metal general figure somewhere. This angle is not very kind to the figure--he is quite nice.
Below I have tried for a side-by-side show of the Wargames Factory Republicans versus the Warlord Games Imperials. The Warlord games have superior detail and are appreciable smaller (the Wargames Factory guys are quite stooped).
Up next: I have some 15mm FoW Germans on paint sticks and I will prime them this afternoon. I also have some wooden soldiers (42mm) that I will start on shortly. Then some 6mm fellows.
