Has anyone tried to pimp out their copy? Minis for legions, barbarians, improvements, generals?

For the start player marker I'm using a Roman coin from Valerian's reign (antoninianus or double denarius). It's truly appalling overkill for a token that isn't even passed around the table and cost me almost as much as the game.

But I think it's neat.

If you are not going to overkill your games once in a while then are you really a true “gamer”. Back when I was hard-core into axis and Allies I think I spent as much money as the 2008 anniversary edition game just to get all of the special dice for the different countries and individual velvet bags

Ok, that is awesome!

I've looked into a few things. Note these may not match the time period.

These could be used for Governors:

These could be used for Generals:
https://store.warlordgames.com/products/imperial-roman-legio...

It may be annoying/fiddly to stack that on the Legion chits though. So I've wondered if you could skip the Generals as a mini, and instead use (player colored) trays numbered on bottom for their respective General value. The (magnetic?) tray would hold a 6mm soldier per each legion in the army. You could color the base of each figure some way to denote Reduced Strength Legion. 6mm may be too fiddly for tray use...

Anyways, I am curious what other people have thought of.

I had troubles finding plastic minis for the improvements. Wooden pieces are a lot easier to find:

Think there is any chance GMT will add a deluxe upgrade kit for this game. That way we can get something similar to COIN game quality wood bits at least with a sticker sheet. It would nice for a 'second printing' of this game.

If you wanted a bunch of 15mm minis to swap for tokens you could do worse than this lot.

Lots of nice historically appropriate minis of the 3rd C Romans and the rest of the gang. Not sure what you'd do about the governors but the soldiers are well catered for.
