28mm Early Imperial Romans

 These are 28mm Wargames Foundry and are the start of my own collection of 28mm Early Imperial Romans. I will probably modify the shields when I have decided what legion they will actually be - either a Roman numeral for the legion number or an appropriate legionary icon/symbol added.
They are based on 60x20 bases, 4 figures to a base. Probably very old fashioned these days. But it gives me flexibility - I can use almost any rules system when they are based like this - because I have a problem in that I can't stick to one rules set. I want to play them all.
I also prefer them on a narrower frontage of 15mm rather than 20mm for these close order troops - I like a good tight shield wall.
So here goes for the start of what will, I hope, be a large collection of Romans. Next unit will be ready in 10 years time. I may still be alive.
