From AaronH - 28mm Roman Auxiliary Skirmishers from Victrix (40 points)

This post is eight auxiliary javelin men from Victrix. They are from the Republican Romans with Armor box. They'll be part of my EIR army for Hail Caesar.

This is a great box set. Lots of models, great sculpts, good variety, great value for money. I regret nothing.

The one guy in a wolf's head is there just in case I need a leader for some reason.

I will most likely break them up into two tiny units of skirmishers. They'll be an annoyance more than anything.

I three some more long grass on here, since I had three left from before and the bases are fairly empty. They are mounted on 60mm x 60mm bases from Litko in the US.

The facial features on these models are great; some of the best I've seen in large unit boxes.

These were fun to assemble and paint and will fill a critical role in my army.

Hmm, I don't thing I've seen Victrix ancients until now and I must say they look quite nice. You've done a great job on these chaps, Aaron. I quite like their facial detail and your groundwork is excellent. Well done and another 40 points towards your target!


  1. Nice belies Aaron. I've been curious about the Victrix Greeks, but I find their Nappys very fiddle some compared to the Perrys. How easy were they to put together?

    1. They were very easy to assemble. I highly recommend these sets.

    2. They were very easy to assemble. I highly recommend these sets.

  2. They look really good. They got the right amount of space for all that long arm throwing action. Cool.

  3. People always do legions yet the auxiliary is just as important. I think these are cracking and if I was doing 28mm Ancients these would now be on my must have list tanks to you.

  4. Very nice - is the lions head a bonus for the chap who gets there first or a penalty for the fella who files in last?

  5. Very flashy in their red tunicas, great stuff!

  6. Swift looking skirmishers! Lovely rich red color on them too!
