Wargames Atlantic Previews New Roman Miniatures

Wargames Atlantic just announced that they are getting into yet another line of figures with new 28mm Roman miniatures. These figures spearhead their coverage into the fall of Rome. This new line is called “Decline and Fall.”

I have to say that following Wargames Atlantic is tons of fun. I can’t believe how fast this company continues to release new plastic kits. These new miniature sets pack in tons of value at extremely fair prices.

Let’s take a look at Wargames Atlantic has to say about their new miniatures.

News of the New Roman Miniatures Straight from Wargames Atlantic

Below is a quote from Wargames Atlantic’s Website about their new range of miniatures.

This range will roughly cover the period from the crisis of the 3rd century through to the fall of the Western Empire and beyond. Some sets from our Blood Oaths range may be useful here as well. We will start with Romans in lorica hamata (mail) and will soon add Goths, Franks, and Army Builder sets for both the Romans and the Goths. 

The Army Builder sets will have 60 figures each at the same price as our other sets ($34.95/£25) and are designed to be used in combination with the main Roman and Goth boxes to provide all the command you need to build many full units using a combination of the boxes. 

This first box will let you build later Roman legionaries with command and lots of head and weapon options to cover a wide swath of history. These also make excellent superior warriors for your Goth, Hun, and other Germanic tribes.

Wargames Atlantic plans to put out at least five kits for this new range this year.

Late Roman Legionaries (1): Lorica Hamata

Wargames Atlantic already posted some more preview pictures of these minis and they are available for pre-order off of their website. Let’s quickly look at the box and the sprues through pictures that the company has released on their website.

I see 16 head options per four miniatures here on the sprue. That should allow you to build these minis for a few different forces. In fact, Wargames Atlantic did just that in one of their preview pictures.

In this image, they have the minis built as two different factions. They engage in a civil war of some sort. I will have to learn more about this period in history.

Over all, the miniatures look pretty good and come at great prices. Below I share with you a few more pictures of the minis from their site.

It’s your game, so why not mix these historic minis up with some fantasy minis? This is the new figures along side the Fantasy Spiders – also made by the same company.
