You’ve waited long enough now so we’re delighted to be able to show off our forthcoming plastic Imperial Roman Auxiliaries!
Everyone who has seen these are united in saying these are the best plastic Roman miniatures we’ve produced to date and who are we to argue! Clad in chainmail and carrying their trademark oval shield and spears these soldiers are the unsung heroes of the Roman war machine.
Painted by the irrepressable Dr Phil Hendry using, as ever, the Army Painter system they really do look splendid. In fact we liked Phil’s paintjob so much we asked Peter Dennis to follow it for the box art!
We’ve based these on burly Auxiliaries taken from Celtic territory as you can see from the tattoos and moustaches. Rather than tread the same old path of Romans in Europe we decided to show that the Roman war machines covered whole swathes of the globe so our Auxiliaries are performing snatch duties in a Middle East settlement much to the chagrin of the locals!
The good Doctor has also had a hand in the waterslide decal sheet that you’ll find inside the box. His design for the shields was so nice we’ve replicated that for you too! On top of that we’ve altered the way we’ve designed these decals – they now have a transparent backing which allows you to apply them over any colour shield you like!
With 24 highly-detailed plastic Auxiliary troopers in the box you’ll be able to reinforce your Legion or field a completely Auxiliary force.
Save your pennies as we’ll be giving you all the details you need to pre-order these very soon.
