I am proceeding with the rebase/ reorganisation of my ancients and medieval. These are ancient Gladiator minis and should be good for my French medievals. I do love how the larger Impetvs bases give you scope for modelling. They are a little oversize but depth is not vital and To the Strongest makes no difference.
