Here are some photos and a short review of the new Warlord plastic Late Republican Romans (Caesar's Legions). These figures are armed with gladius rather than pilum and you get twenty four figures in each box, regardless, including command.
Only the head, right arm and scutum has to be glued to the torso, so assembly is very straightforward. There is also an option on the arms for sling rather than gladius, if that appeals. The only tricky part in putting these together is cutting out the hilt, grip and pommel of the gladius from the scabbard and some care needs to be taken when doing this to avoid injury!
I've used LBM shield transfers sized for Foundry figures that I already had and these were a perfect fit on the Warlord figures. Looking at the comparison shots below, all on the same bases, you can see that that they're surprisingly compatible height wise with the Foundry figures being just a tad beefier. In summary another great plastic set from Warlord that is compatible with the best existing metal ranges like Foundry and Companion.
