    Nice job so far Mike. I look forward to seeing which units you use for the Legionaires and the Auxilia. I have a II/78a and 78b waiting in the wings.

    Hi Tony! This project has stalled a bit due to the fact that I hate the legionary figs that came in the pack. They have leather muscle cuirrases that look like they are straight out of a Charlton Heston movie. I need to see if OG (closest in scale, I think) makes some with chain mail. The aux for this army (Essex) are actually pretty nice. Oval shields, crestless metal helmets, cloth armor, and are carrying darts (just like the guy on the left on my masthead).

    The OG (which is what I have) have the leather cuirasses too.
