Footsore Miniatures Late Romans

Hi all,
I recived yesterday my order from footsore miniatures I have not used this company before so I was opened minded to what the end product was going to be like . Well I was blown away with the quality of the product . From beginning to end its been a great experience dealing with this company .
When I placed my order I liked the way there was a picture next to it how often do you click on a load of codes only to receive things you clicked on by mistake . So when you get updates about your order there are pictures of the product .
  As always that probably made no sense to you ! Bellow are some pictures of the sculpts and this is the meat and potatoes of this review . They are some of the best sculpts I have seen, lovely movement   In them they are really clean and I can see them taking paint well . I always think there are some very good sculptors out there but the castings themselves are often a let down but not as in this case . Very, very clean no flash and no worms ( nod towards the Perry Miniatures) only the faintest of mold lines, top work all round .
They came with wire spears (not clear on the web site) they were packed in bags and boxed well . So by the tone of the review you can tell I like these figures (they came with a bonus figure)  I take my hat off to the company for their attention to detail and there customer service .
So it's a big Furphy 10/10 to Footsore Miniatures !
 Thanks for stopping by .........
Regards Furphy .


  1. I've eyed this range up for ages since a trip to the Cirencester museum. If I ever did the period, I'd definitely start with footsore so glad the meet your expectations. Enjoy painting them!

  2. Hi Phil,
    these are going to be for Chris's Dux Britaniarum campaign, I have to say the late Roman period never had a hold on me . If I went Roman it would be early imperial Rome, when I paint for my self it's normally something with a bayonet on it ! But these as I say are really cracking figures I thought once I had enough for the game I would add to them to form a late Roman army .
    Thanks for the comment Phil .
    Regards Furphy .

  3. My Irish are waiting buddy..... :-)

  4. Stu,
    the time it takes me to paint your Irish will need walking sticks and mobility scooters .
