Here is another legion from Blue Moon. Last time I painted legionaries advancing with gladii. These are advancing with pila. The pila are held close to the body, so it's unlikely that they will bend much in gaming.
Blue Moon also makes a pack of legionaries throwing pila, but I have given them a pass for two reasons. I am afraid they will not fit comfortably on 15mm deep bases, and I am afraid that the cast pila will bend or break.
These two units exhaust my supply of Blue Moon Romans, but I think the next time I order from Old Glory, I will tack a few more packs on. I like these a lot.
