I have now completed the first of my Punic armies - the Romans. The other three (Gallic, Spanish and 'African') are all over half finished.
The Army comprises:
8 units velites (each 12 figs)
8 units of hastati (24 figs each)
8 units of principes (24 figs each)
8 units of triarii (12 figs each)
8 units of cavalry (8 figs each)
7 command stands (15 figs)
Total: 655 figures - roughly a consular army at 1:33. The army's frontage is about 10 feet.
The velites are represented at half strength due to battlefield durability and foot print - they should, historically, be 24 figure units.
