I think Victrix do them in plastic. Crusader and A&A produce them in metal and Aventine have them on their "to do" list. I have Aventine and Crusader and they mix very well.

Definitely Victrix unarmoured Samnites.

Tin Soldier do Samnites too
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Great question.  One of my initial desires in creating Wars of the Republic was to field a Samnite force!  Several years later, and that force still has not materialized!

I was planning on using the Victrix models.

I use a mix of Agema plastic skirmishers with Italian heads, first corps, old glory and some foundry bits. Was thinking about adding some aventine when they release them.

Thanks guys
Gotta say Ive gone off the Victrix Samnites a bit ..poses are a bit off to my eye ..plus the $ savings are not as good as they were , and they dont mix that well with other brands , well thats my IMHO ..
Cheers
