SPQR: Caesar's Legions – Legionaries
While the sprues of legionaries are a little dated, they look ok. The only major flaw is that the sword and scabbard is molded onto every body, so the sword wielding miniatures end up with two weapons.
The colors are as follows, unless otherwise noted all paints are Vallejo model color and shades are Army Painters Quickshades.
