Victrix Republican Roman Leves














 

Here are a few photos of a small unit of Leves from the new plastic Victrix Republican Roman box sets. You get 18 light infantry per 60 figure box and these can be made up as Velites or the earlier Leves. What can I say about these Victrix figures? Short answer they just keep getting better and better, both in the detail and quality of figures, ease of construction, value for money and variety of poses! I've included two comparison shots of these with some Aventine Leves below, the Aventine figures have slightly thicker bases and longer javelins. Republican Roman wargamers are sure spoilt for choice!

  2. Thanks for posting - I am beginning to get the basics together for a Camillan Roman army, and it looks as though these guys will do very nicely indeed.

    1. No worries Paul, all three boxes are brilliant. You have options for Leves, Hasta armed Principes and Italian allies as well.

  5. I have become a big fan of plastic figures, although not tried any of the Victrix figures yet.
    They look great Mike and I shouldn't think they took too long to do, so for the cost and time, you could have swarms of them out in front of your main troops.

    1. Thanks Pat, I'm a big fan too, don't really understand when people say they don't like them. They're easy to paint and put together, the detail is as good as or better than most metal ranges, they're lighter and easier to transport and you get more value for your money.
