Early Imperial Roman Auxiliaries

The Early Imperial Roman army is always popular with ancient wargamers and it's an army I really like playing with, having had quite a bit of luck with over time. The auxiliaries provided invaluable support to the legions and are pretty tough troops in their own right. I've taken a few new photos of my auxiliaries and will post  more shortly, as I complete units. All the shields have LBM transfers.

  3. Wow, really nice figures, have you based them at an angle to help them fit on the bases? the pilum looks like it would get in the way if they faced forward. Then I preume the archers were done the same to fit in? why in the last unit have you got troops facing both ways?

  4. Hi Dan
    Yeah the BTD figures are pretty chunky with wide bases so it's hard to fit them on 20mm bases unless you slant them digonally. It's also makes it easier to rank them up with the javelins. I don't know I think it's just the poses and how they fit! BTW really like all the Napoleonics and other stuff on your blog.
    Cheers

    I really like your troops, I think they will die valiantly in the coming months in the campaign!

    Romans always die valiantly, unlike barbarian scum! The Britunculi have the longest record of inglorious defeat and continuous whingeing in history :). Roma victoria!
