Republican Roman 1/72 plastic figures by Hat.  Similar numbers to Zingara.  Based on 60x40mm bases to play Command & Colours or To the Strongest.

I have a couple of DBA armies in 15mm one of 'Marian Romans' all Essex and another of 'Camillian Romans' which is mainly Essex but with a few Museum Miniatures add-ons. They are based on the standard 15mm DBA base sizes.

Seeing the terrific quality of miniatures out there these days I am tempted to have a go in 28mm at some stage, maybe for Saga or another 'warband' type ruleset individually based on round bases.

Nah. I have only ever liked "proper" Romans i.e Early Imperial in lorica segmentata.
Currently building two different armies of those.
By the way, Crucifixion is a doddle
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

 Punic Wars, 28mm, single based for use in FFoL or Clash of Spears.  All Victrix models, with two metal Fighting Hedgehog figures.  Only partly done so far (two officers, 8 Principes, and 8 Allied).
On time, on target, or the next one's free

I have a Republican roman force for Clash of Spears and Saga. The figures are mostl Aventine. The officer and his bannerman are Relic minis and the Samnites are A&A. I painted the Principes, hastatis and the velites. All others plus all officers, musicians and bannermen are painted by my friend Graham.

Yes, a 15mm legion painted and based according to the FoG army list. A mixture of Baueda (from their Marian Roman kickstarter a few years ago) and Forged in Battle figures, and perhaps one or two ranks of old Corvus Belli. Each cohort (except for the 1st below, which is double) is made of 4 figures per stand and six stands per cohort. Ten cohorts in all. I painted according to Vegetius who claimed that each cohort had a different shield pattern to differentiate them on the battle field. So that is why my legion has various shield patterns.




and another, unpainted, 3/4 legion (including Baueda unarmored/penal) with (FiB) Iberian allies to represent a certain squirrelly but not very well equipped legion in Hispania during the later Republican period.

You go to war with the figures you have, not the figures you wish you had!

I have Punic Wars Romans but with the ambition to have enough spear armed Principes to be able to field them against my Pyrrhic and Etruscan armies. Approximately 300 28mm figures, mainly Foundry but with a few units and lots of command figures drafted in from all sorts of ranges. I mainly use Piquet rules. They include rules for the Roman Triplex Acies formation that work very well.


Not Foundry, Agema Triarii.

Several. In 6mm, still struggling for a rule set. In 15mm, as a matched opponent for my Carthaginians, using DBMM, and in 28mm for Infamy, Infamy.

I have Polybian Romans and Allied legion in 28mm - Agema and Victrix.

I have Marian/Caesarean Romans in 25/28mm (Warlord, Old Glory, Wargames Factory and Wargames Foundry).

I also have a 15mm Blue Moon Republican Roman (Caesarean) army.

(Then I could go on with EIR and Late Roman ... not to mention opponents...).

All based individually. 28mm on Canadian nickels (magnetic and cheaper than washers) and 15mm on washers.  I thought a lot about group basing but sabot bases/movement trays work just fine and allow FAR more flexibility in rules usage.

Got a 28mm Roman force for the Punic Wars and previously owned a large 15mm one as well, playing DBA/M, Armati, WAB and Hail Caesar over the years.
