Hastati, Principes, and Triarii. Included with the legions will be units of heavy cavalry, light cavalry, Latin allies, Velites, and Alai infantry.
I am very much looking forward to painting this army and getting it out on the battlefield. However, there is plenty of lead on my workbench waiting for some attention. It may be awhile before I start painting these Romans.
That might give me alot of time learn more about the history of this army and the Republican period of Rome. This army is supposed to represent an army from the pre-Marius reforms. I expect it to operate much more like a ancient Greece hoplite army only with more cavalry. The army will be commanded by an awesome figure representing the great general Scipio, who led the real Roman army to victory against the hordes of Hannibal.
