Officers and signifer party ready to base

I'm moderately happy with the cornucen, signifer, and two officers as they've come out. I've simplified down the paint highlights, and it shows. I may add a few highlights once they are based.

They will not be based together. The front pair are destined for the hastati or principes, while the rear pair will stand around in relaxed pose with the triarii. At least, that's my plan. If I read somewhere that cornucens were always in the triarii then that will change the plan.

Roman Officer (conversion)

This is the assembled conversion: head is swapped, sword from Roman Allies glued on, Esci barbarian shield added. I have yet to fill the shield boss.

Foot command element?

This is a probable for my Poly Roms. I'd quite like to feature a command type element, to sit amongst the Hastati. I have a mini from the Esci Impy Romps (centre), two from the HaT catapult plus box (top row), and I also have a potential head-swap from a damaged Hastatus to an Italian Ally mini (bottom row)which is otherwise close to the Roman Officer figure from Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars.
