This is the first of my Early Imperial Roman DBA Armies. I have enough to do three full armies – complete with all possible options… and enough of everything BUT the Legionaries (Blades) to do two more!? I think before doing any more Romans I’ll probably do some Early Germans to oppose them!
The army has an option of a Cavalry or Blade General, four Blade (Legionnaires), four Auxilia, a Cavalry and an Artillery stand, then either an additional Calvary, Light Horse, Psiloi, or Bow stand.

The army is almost exclusively made of old Citadel Minatures from the 1980’s. These were produced under license by Ral Partha in North America. The General on the Calvary General Stand is from Old Glory, and the Artillery stand is, I think, from Minifigs. My friend John got them in a trade last year when he decided to off-load his15mm Great War stuff, then subsequently traded them to me for painting futures (I have completed one unit of Cuirassier for him thus far and, I think, agrees to paint three or four more…).
As mentioned above I have enough to do a few more armies - at some point I'd like to do a Roman campaign - maybe revolving around a civil war - with a couple roman armies and a couple others (Germans, etc) that might either capitalize on the unrest to pick away at the empire or ally themselves with one of the various roman factions... But that won't be for a while!
