So at the Local club Warlord Games Hail Ceasar seems to be popular for the Ancients and Historical gaming. With this in mind I have purchased some of the Warlord Games Romans to start a Roman HC Army.

These come in a combination of Plastic and Metal models. The plastic figures seem to have less flash and less preperation work is required for these. The metal figures however have more flash and require a fair amount of prep work before base spraying, but they do have finer details.

Which do I prefer well the Plastic due to being plain lazy when it comes to prep work.

Well I shall base my Army on the Legio IX Hispania from the Simon Scarrow Books.

These are led by a Legate called Geta.

So my forces will consist of the following.

General - Mounted (there to make up the numbers for commanders)
Legate - Mounted
Prefect - Foot
I Cohort
32 x Veterans
II Cohort
16 x Legionaries
16 x Legionaries
