In ancient times

I think the original Romans from Playmobil are quite nice, but there are a few possibilities to "mix around" with them.

As a Roman fan, I particularly like these customs, Ralf!  I agree that Playmobil did an excellent job with their Romans, but they’re from the late Republic and early Empire.  Your excellent customs here, however, are from an earlier period that Playmobil did not touch upon and thus they make wonderful complements to Playmobil’s stock klickies.

Your velite is perfect!  How about a rank of 10 or so of them? ;)

I like your leather armored soldier with his sash.  He would make a great optio and is a nice contrast to the heavily armored Romans.

In your last picture, your Republican soldiers look very authentic!  The crests are spot on and I love the bronze helmets and greaves!  Your signifier or cornicen looks great too!  Well done!

Great new customs Ralf!
I was wondering where you got the ideas for these Romans when Justindo mentioned the early republic!
I hit myself on the head for not realising! ::)

They are supearb! I never even thought of making Early Republic Romans,
but now that I see them I want them so bad!!!
What a great job!!! :o :o :o

These are very nice, Ralf.  I like your variety of troops and your soldiers in undress.

Awsome new groups Ralf!!! ;D
Ireally like the last group,
Do you ever make your customs in a larger quantity?

Whole centuries and the what-not? ;D

Excellent customs, once again, Ralf!  I like the color variety in the first group, the men in undress in the second group, and the officer in the third group.  Is the last group supposed to be Praetorians?  They look great! :)
