I considered just putting this in the main thread about these guys, but figured it might do better on its own.
Basically, because the lower and patter parts of the body are two different pieces, I feel like the kit would be a really great spring board for WGA to make conversion kits for them. One of these could be the most obvious 'gladiator' kit, but others could be things like the much awaited Theurophoroi, Iberian infantry, or other light/medium infantry from the puic wars. (The 'gladiator loin cloth' in the set brings to mind certain images of Etruscans and Samnites I've seen over time, even though it isn't a 1:1 comparison.) And I imagine there could probably be many more uses for the legs at least than just those!
But I guess the bigger question is, would there be a point? Is it any easier or cheaper to make a half sprue for conversions, or would it be simpler just to make a whole dedicated kit for the same things the civilians could be converted into? I can't say I know nearly as much about the industry of making plastic minis to be able to have any real clue on the matter.
But what are your thoughts?
