Republican Romans

These are the first Aventine Miniatures I've ever painted. And I have to ask myself, how is it that I took so long to get on the Aventine Train? They were such a treat to paint that Aventine is now one of my favorite miniature makers. The only thing holding me back from a big spend is they're ruthless about taking down their ranges when they show any mold lines. As a small operation, that means whole ranges are off their site at any time. That's ok. I've got them bookmarked and will swoop in once their Steppe Tribes and Sassanid Persians are back.  

Painted for a Saga campaign but it'd be nice to find a way to use them in a bigger battle. In Saga, I've been running 3-4 points of warriors, 1 point of levy javelin (velites) 1-2 of hearthguard (triarii).  They're another fun board to run with a number of powerful combos.


  1. Aventine miniatures are awesome, and wonderful paint job on those Romans!

  2. Great figures beautifully painted, Monty. Up to your usual exceptional standard!

    1. Aaron, thanks so much! Loved your last report on C&C Epic, especially with you using your minis for it. Nicely done!
