Reinforcements Already! Warlord Legionaries: Review

These chaps arrived in the mail last week for me to review:

Warlord Game's new boxed set of legionaries. You now get 20 legionaries and a scorpion. (The old 30 legionary box is still avaiable however from the webstore.) The box contents are:
  • 1 sprue of 10 legionaries
  • 1 sprue of 7 legionaries and 3 command figures (centurion, cornicen and signifer)
  • 1 sprue of 1 scorpion and 2 screw
  • 1 sheet of shield transfers.
Some sprue shots:

Legionary sprue front
Legionary sprue back
Command sprue front
Command sprue back
For a shot of the scorpion sprue go to my review of the Scoprion Battery here and pictures of my painting a pair of them here.

The details are all nicely executed. There is a little bit of flash that will need to be trimmed. Most of the figures are pretty simple; body, one arm (choose either pilum or gladius armed) to glue on, add shield and head. There are some nice extras on the sprues, extra empty helmets, extra pila and a few extra small shields which will be handy for making casualty markers or adding to vignettes.

For extra fun, they also included this blister pack of beauties:

The Roman slave girls. Nice sculpts. Reasonable proportions. Good detail. They look nice without going too far into male fantasy land. I have no idea right now what I'm going to do with them, but I'm sure once I have a camp or fort they'll look lovely attending to the Prefect.

Stay tuned for how I get on with painting the legionaries up.


  1. Great stuff, your going to be rather busy.

  2. The box contents look great, I'm looking forward to seeing them ready for action. Not sure if I agree with dropping the handy box of 30 figs for an extra unit though.

  3. The 30 figure box is still on their website. A friend got a couple and they have 1 command sprue and 2x legionary sprues.
