Thanks guys!

Don't get too excited about the customisations, I feel it will be a slow process for me!

This is known as "playmocrastination". I do it a lot, having been promising a big effortpost on my legion for oh around four years now.

Sorry Oliver for hijacking your thread. But Macruran, are you actually trying to raise a Roman legion?! That's like 5,000 men!! I once dreamt about something like this too, but then decided (because of time, space and money needed) to scale down to a single cohort. It's still not finished yet, at the moment I have only about 200 soldiers in arms and no baggage train.

I'm not doing a 6000 man legion, no, it's much scaled down. I field about 100 figures at the moment, maybe more, though that's expandable with all the 7878s I have in reserve.

My big post will explain it all. Joking aside, I hope to have it finished before Christmas.

@ Oliver: Yes, that's a lot of soldiers already, but my full cohort shall be comprised of about 600 people. So I have only about one third now.

@ Macruran: Lucky you! I was so mad when DS discontinued 7878 because you can't build an army properly with 6490. But then I saw the new 5393 set. Perfect! This will save me!

PM US still sells 7878, last year I bought about 100 sets of it, this year much less but I feel an itch. I am going to get some with the current discount. If you need 7878s I have many to spare! Let me know. I understand the need.

5393 disappoints me, they've mixed in centurion torsos and metal greave legs, it's not a proper army builder set in my view. Still, it's better than a stick in the eye.
