Thanks you

Yes they are.  The Agema poses are slightly stiffer and more upright but they are almost identical in build.  I have some comparisons shots which I will post this evening (they are on a different computer).  I also did a link to this on this board but since we cannot now sort by 'started by' I can't find it except by wading back through the thread.

Good to know, I'm concerned about the shields since they seems to be' different, I hope they're not too different.

I would assume minor variations in shield design were the norm back then. I for one tend to mix the different manufacturers in order to get a slightly less ‚industrialized‘ look.

The shields are a different design, the Agema ones are is slightly larger and thinner than the Victrix ones.  That said you get quite a few extra shields in the Vixtrix box so that small numbers of Agema figures can be given Victrix ones.  Alternatively I would give the Triarii Agema shields so that with their long spears they look very distinctive.  Pics to follow.

I actually need them to be converted like this:

They're essentially a militia/auxilliary force for my renaissance army (for non historical games Onlus), so the shields could be a problem but I guess I'll find out a solution.

Here is the comparison pic.

Left is Victrix body with an Agema Head and right is an Agema body with a Victrix head.

Hope that helps
