What have the Romans ever done for us?

I've finally finished all of the legionaries for my first Roman legion. All up there are 104 of them (100 legionaries and 4 command figures) making up 10 cohorts. I've been painting them off and on for about a year as I've not been in any hurry and I've been doing lots of other things along the way.

I have a bunch of slingers ready for painting and I have 2 scorpio's and some javelin skirmishers in the post. But these will be relatively quick and easy to paint. I also have to get some cavalry which I think will consist of one unit of Roman equites and some Numidean light horse. Although I could go for some Germanic or Spanish medium horse.

I also bought enough cheap second hand plastic troops for a second legion but these can wait in their boxes for the moment. I'll do them slowly in time.

I need a general too.

 "Okay men, we're going that way."

"Look sharp men, we're going that'a way?  

"I said; That Way!" 

"Like the boss said: That way!"

"This way."

"Yes sir! That way."

"Legion... Dis-missed!"
