I'm a bit curious as to how you all put together your Legionary units in regard to weapons. Do all the minis in your unit have the same weapons, i.e. pila or gladii or a mix of both?
Within the cohorts of the first Legion I ever built all the minis had pila. The first rank had the pila at 'Pila Vollite' (in the throwing position) and the back three ranks had the pila at 'Pila Portate' (carry position preparing to throw).
I'm not sure if I will create my cohorts in the same manner this time or not. I might have the front rank wielding gladii instead.
By the way - my cohorts will be made up of 24 minis - 1 Centurion, 1 Signifer, 1 Cornicen & 21 Legionaries.
If I do decide to go with the same weapon for all minis, within a unit, and there are not enough to go around, would anyone out there be interested in trading arms?
You know, a 'but/Trade/Barter section, for things like this, wouldn't be a bad idea for the forum!!! Who knows, maybe the guys at WG might even produce sprues of nothing but arms!!!
