I personally prefer the Victrix figures to the Warlord ones, they seem a little more anatomically plausible to me, and apparently the Warlord ones you have to be careful about the size between the various sets. But that’s hearsay.

Thumbs up from me for Victrix as well! Some of the assembly can be a trifle fiddly, but I do admit I don’t like assembling figures at all. I did notice that they are sold of out German warrior figures; I guess a lot of people must be really looking forward to Infamy! (But I’m sure you can find them elsewhere; Caliver maybe? That’s where I get mine). Warlord aren’t bad though, but I just prefer the look of Victrix.
However, not only are the figures from Victrix top notch, but Warlord’s recent price increases are enough to make Games Workshop blush.
Warlord: 20 plastic Gauls – C$43.
Victrix: 48 plastic unarmoured warriors – $C5001/07/2020 at 00:48 #139245
The only drawback with using Victrix, who are decent sized figures, is you need chunky barbarians to tower over the puny legionaries. 🙂
And I have just spent the last three hours assembling the final Romans (it won’t be, I have at least 36 more figures in that spare Victrix box, but plenty for a Caesarian force..) and then adding sand and kitty litter to markers, bases and other bits and pieces. All the sabot bases are ready for the paint shop as are the last of the Romans, a cart, Fervour dials (Warbases) and some Gallic cavalry. And I rummaged through old trophies and turned up some druids, a wailing woman and a mounted and foot warrior for my Germans, (plus a gladiator???) Now waiting for my Germans to arrive… come on 1st Corps 😉 I can foresee a marathon painting session for the Romans though.

My printed copy of Kenny (or Infamy to the uninitiated) turned up today

I learned about InfamyInfamy yesterday—last night! I’ve set my current terrain projects by the wayside and I created an account here just to say that I’m so excited… I was painting and basing 15mm ancients on 19.05mm rounds for my own game The Flood when I heard about this…
I’m whole hog on this game and am begging for releases of Maccabean, Egyptian and Assyrian PDFs/sourcebooks… unlikely. I can’t wait to see if this game can grow and get into second edition and allow Aztecs and Ninja/Samurai… pleaaaaase21/07/2020 at 20:23 #140800Mr. AverageParticipant21/07/2020 at 20:48 #140801fairoaks024Participant
There seems to be as much Infamy these days as there were Pikemen Lamenting about this time two years ago. Would it work, do you think, if, day, a single soldier were substituted with a base of 3mm troops?
id say that it would work very well like that.21/07/2020 at 23:34 #140807
I know a number of people planning on using a variety of scales. Personally I think it would feel a little odd as the movement vs weapons ranges might be askew.

I went for Warlord figures as they were on offer. Apart from my usual incompetence in building plastic figures in impressed with the Romans. The Gauls however, are a different story. I really don’t like them. I’ve switched to Victrix for the main units.
Also who thought multipart figures with metal and plastic parts was a good idea? Arghhhhh! 😆24/07/2020 at 13:02 #141011Albert of WinterpigParticipant
I just live in hope of the ‘Don’t tell him Pike’ supplement for Macedonians et al.
