Baccus Roman Miniatures and Roman Seas Models
We ordered a few packages of Baccus 6mm Roman infantry figures back in December 2005 directly from Baccus in the UK to see how they would look with Roman Seas. Baccus miniatures are slightly larger than the miniatures we were using (Heroics & Ros) and there was some concern that they may be too large. However, Roman Seas ship and building models were designed slightly over scale to ensure there would be enough room for the placement of miniatures on the ship models, and because of this, Baccus miniatures are a perfect scale match to Roman Seas.

Baccus Package Type Strips in Pack Figs in Pack
The basic infantry pack 24 (20 of line/4 of command) 96
Light infantry/skirmishers 12 48
Cavalry 15 (10 of line/4 of command) 45
Artillery 4 (4 guns/4 crew) 4 guns/16 crew

Basing Baccus Roman Miniatures
Baccus infantry miniatures are mounted onto strips of four figures per strip. The miniatures' bases are thick and potentially difficult to cut, however, we used a small pair of wire cutters and cut the 4-figure strip of miniatures into individual figs, which proved very easy, quick and effective. We chose to mount our Baccus miniatures onto the same base size (9mm x 9mm) that we used with all our Heroics & Ros miniatures, but instead of placing three figures per base, we placed two on a base. The end result was very impressive. The below photographs show how Baccus 6mm miniatures look when used with Roman Seas ship models.
