Hello, Customizer ...

This does NOT look like the same Roman army that was in your first post! Do you think that this is another Roman army?

Do we know exactly how many Roman Klickys they actually got from Playmobil?

All the best and thanks, Andi,
Richard

Richard, I read on another board that they got 18,000 (!)  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:  Romans and the plan was to make three legions - red, blue and green - of 6,000 soldiers each!

18,000? ...  :shock:

Do you know how long it would take to set up 18,000 figures?

If ... you placed a new figure every five seconds (which doesn't allow for any errors or accidently knocking over one figure and creating a "domino effect") ... ;)

In one minute you would have placed 12 figures.
In one hour you would have placed 720 figures.
and ...
In twenty-five hours you would have placed 18,000 figures.

So if you worked for three days (eight hours and twenty minutes each day without any breaks) you would have placed ALL 18,000 Klickys!

I wonder how big of a box you would need to store 18,000 Klickys? ...  :lol:

It's mind boggling ... :roll:

Thanks for the info, Henry!
Richard

Yes this are right there are 18 000 Romans here in Germany at the Museum !

So there are round about 5000-6000 Figures per Museum.
The 18000 are only build one times complete at the TV.

The blue was at Freiburg and the red one at last at Kalkriese.
The green was never seen this days.

But i can tell you the making of this army and the reconstruction from the complete Varus Battle (18000 Romans) i had a Video from this.
This report are postet here in german at tv a few weeks ago.

If you want i can test to get some pics or avi from this video ?!

So Richard no no they dont set one and one figure , one Centurie are stuck of a gum mat. they must only set the centuries !

greetings

Andi ;)
