Guess what I found on my way to the Forum, well actually I was rummaging through some boxes looking for 15mm ACW figures when I found these lying unpainted and unloved.
Some, if not all of them are 54mm by Irregular Miniatures, and just asked to be painted up, so I did.
This is, supposedly, a Myrmillion, but I am far from being an expert in this period.
I am told this is a Velites although it reminds me of a peltast.
A Samnite, said to be lucky fighters perhaps because they got a big shield.
The Retarius or net thrower.
The Gaul, most likely a war captive.
The Dimachaerus, daggers in both hands.
I have made up a simple arena using sand coloured Heroscape tiles, giving a total of 61 hexes in a super-hex with 5 hexes per face.
The rules I intend to use are 'Munera Sine Missione' which I got online from:
I'll perhaps let you know how we got on, thumbs up or thumbs down!!
