The 3rd century Roman army so far

I have promised myself this collection for a long time. The "A and A Miniatures" captured my imagination a long time ago. The lead has sat in a box for a long time and this weekend I decided to do something about it. Wonderful figures for a fascinating period. I'll work on a basic impetus type army to start with but this can also be used for "To the Strongest" on 150mm grids.
Shields are LBM transfers.

A great period to get inspired by and some great looking units to start things off! Now I finally need to put paint to mine... someday ;-)

Great stuff David. It makes me want to dust off my own unpainted 3rd century stuff.

Great looking figures. I also was very impressed with this A&A range; almost started an army.

Inspiring work David! I agree the A&A 3rd Century Romans easily stand the test of time and are wonderful figures.
