Thanks, Agema figures ordered.

VVV also have decals for Republican Romans (they just don't advertise it well and it's mixed in another area, for some unknown reason)

http://www.3vwargames.co.uk/upshop/shop/extras25mm.html

XX2 is the stock number and it is mixed in with "Extras".  I have no idea where it would be on the Magister Militum site ...  Sorry.

I know that you asked specifically for plastics, but I would dare to recommend you Aventine Miniatures range. In my opinion, they are excellent and while more expensive than plastics I prefer them. And they have Allied Legions! :D

I’d have to say that parallels my journey with Agema and Victrix as well!

Warlord Macedonian pikemen work exceptionally well alongside the Victrix Macedonians.  The heads of the Victrix Macedonians are not as large as their Greeks so you can put the extra Victrix Macedonian heads into Immortal/Warlord plastic classic Greeks.

Thanks, I have some Aventine metal figures amongst my Imperial Romans and I do like them.  That said I also like to "bulk out" some units with plastic figures which is part of the reason for my initial request. 
I am also looking at the Agema metals for characters and specialists.

I painted a Army for a customer I thought they were nice miniatures, a little finer in detail and slighter in build to other ranges.

Cheers
