|HaT Industrie 1/32 scale Roman Hastati|

I finished painting the first 16 figure unit of Republican Roman Hastati for my 2nd Punic Wars Project. The HaT figures paint rather fast and they are fun to paint, so I would imagine that new units should be rolling off the assembly line at a rapid pace going forward. I can easily paint 32 figures per week, which equates to two boxes of figures. I rather imagine that I can knock out a few more figures per week, perhaps 48?
The Roman figures are standing on 40mm rounds from Litko bases. I will probably order some 8-figure movement stands (two ranks of 4 figures) from Litko. The 10 and 6 figure stands are "stand ins" so that I can see how they will look when they are formed up.
The picture below provides a mockup of how the infantry units might look when they are deployed on the table. I am using 16 figures per unit, in two ranks, having a frontage of 14-inches.
