I have five Alpha Miniatures Romans. I painted the legionary and auxiliary a while back, and am considering work on my Roman signifer and German. I mounted the miniatures on rectangular pieces of sheet styrene. I wanted them to match my pre-painted Conte Collectibles 1/32 Romans, so I did not add flock or static grass. Alpha Miniatures models often comes with weapon options, in this case: pila/galius and hasta/gladius. My shield blazons come from Trajan's Column and were painted free-hand.
