The remnants of the Newline Designs 20mm Republican Roman Hastati and Principes. I gathered the painted figures and sorted them into what would be on each base as you will see this is based on the same pose filled out with command figures.
The previous post showed the usual basing format of 12 figures arranged in 2 ranks on an 80mm frontage. For Lost Battles this represents average legionaries (ALE) in this system veteran units represent half as many men and usually half the frontage (40mm in my adopted basing scheme) except for veteran legionaries (VLE) who with half as many men as an average unit still occupy the same 80mm frontage (they offset this with a triple movement ability). In this way I have simply spread out 6 figures across the 80mm base, the more confident legionaries not needing to huddle together as much. Also its easy enough to place 2 veteran legionary bases to form a average one if necessary or for another gaming system:
Work has begun on the Triarii which will have a mix of average and veteran bases and the Heroquest mission is completed which will get a post at some point. I'm currently a bit all over with my projects wanting to really get cracking through the ancients rebasing, which all need a few extra figures to square the numbers, I came across some primed Napoleonic Austrians which I have started to paint up although I feel adrift when it comes to my Napoleonic project! The overall plan is to continue with rebasing, Triarii is well underway needing only a few command figures, following with various contingents for the Punic wars.
