Airfix Romans

Another "historically correct" set from Airfix.
13 poses, 4 nags and 1 chariot
The pegs for the  shields are badly place so the bods end up carrying them on thier elbows. And as for the sporty Chariot!! :-)
The "grunts"
All hold the shield incorrectly, a selection of clobber that probably never existed, all in all not very historically accurate
Command and Archer.
The best from the set although also not too accurate in historical terms.
The chariot. I´ve upgraded it by adding reins and painting designs on the "shield".

They get a poor rating over at PSR, but these guys (along with 100´s of thier comrades) invaded  and took control of large areas of  carpet back in the day.
