Agema Miniatures - 28mm Republican Roman Velites


This is the first release by Agema Miniatures, the set contains 16 figures representing Republican Roman Velites (Light Infantry) from the time of the Punic Wars. 
The box contains 8 frames, see below, each of which contains two figures, which have the typical format - torso and legs to which can be added arms and a head. There is a set of arms and a head for each figure, with no additional options - so basically enough to make two complete figures per frame.
Thus the range of poses achievable is similarly limited - you'll need to use your imagination and modelling skills to add more variety! That said the figures are moulded well - as we have come to expect from Rendara Ltd. 
From each frame can be made a figure holding a sword and another holding a javelin, there are two shields to pick from , one with additional javelins attached and for those troops who are to be modelled as veterans there are some Wolfskin cloaks to be added.
These figures are bigger that Warlord Games Imperial Romans, I have not yet compared to their Caeser's Legion offerings for a size comparison.
A good starter pack from a new company.
