Romans in Progress

Slowly making my way through the Agema Romans I bought at Salute.
Need to pick up some command figures and Agema have recently released those too, in metal.

Still a little unsure over basing these - I've tacked them to 80mm bases, in units of 8 figures. In Hail Caesar these will be 'small units'. I feel they lack some presence, but if I picture twice the number of units it starts to look better in the minds eye.

Painting so far has been simply block colours and a wash of Army Painter Strong Tone. I may add highlights - another decision pending as yet.

The Velites are based on single 25mm bases

I am a little nervous of the fragility of those plastic spears
