We come for Spartacus!
Ready to crush the upstart Spartacus, two cohorts of the Roman City Guard advance towards Mt. Vesuvius.
I just watched the 1960's version of "Spartacus" and decided to trot out these old Minifig Romans that I started in the 1980's.
As you can see I never did finish them, although they did see a couple of battles-a rare event for me as I prefer to use fully painted pieces.
The detail of Minifig pieces from 1970's designs was very basic by modern standard, but they were very inexpensive allowing for good sized armies in most historic periods.
