Samnite Linen Legion












Here are a few photos of my first Samnite unit for my Samnite army, the famous Linen Legion, mentioned by Livy (10.38.3-13). Figures are by Crusader Miniatures and A&A Miniatures. Hopefully Victrix will be releasing a plastic set of these shortly to add to the excellent Crusader and A&A metal ranges.
