Great work so far, I don't think I could paint as many similar figures as you're planning before I got bored!  :D

Looking forward to seeing the whole legion on completion.

Thanks.

Same here...  :) that's why I paint 3 different periods (Napoleonic Waterloo, HYW and Early Romans).

My plan:
1st cohort 33 leg. (advancing)
2-9 cohorts 25x9, 225 leg. (4 attacking and 5 marching)
1 inf. aux. 24 men
1 archer aux. 24 men
2 aux cav. 24 men
General and bodyguards 6-7 men

Total 336 strong

Are you going to add any Scorpions/carroballistae or onagers?  And maybe a medicus? 

My own legionaries are still in their boxes.

Not sure about that because I don't know which minis fit well with Victrix EIR. Maybe Black Tree Design?
Thw next is cavalry auxilia...

Fight a Roman Civil War, it would even things up and there is no hairy arse horde to paint, unless you include some as allies.

Is that the victrix cavalry figure? I was going to buy some of these but he looks huge compared to the Centurion. I think I will stick with Warlords and Aventine for the cavalry.

Yes, it's Victrix one... Not sure why he is bigger. I am very disappointed.

Edit

Also, cav oval shield is bigger than scutum.  o_o
