18mm Blue Moon Caesar's Legions, Part II

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.

  1. Wonderful work, Scott. I love these, especially your shieldwork.


    The next time I paint MRR or Gauls, I'm going to give Blue Moon a try.

  2. Nice Job Dude! I have a couple of uniits of these at my 15mm painters but will in the future have a bash at the Gauls myself- though 15mm painting is a bit of a trial.
    There is a bundle of new Bluemoon stuff on the way in the coming year- all sorts of periods....

  5. Very handsome shield work. Blue Moon produces many excellent ranges and the Caesar Gallic Wars range is no exception.
