Samnite hastatus (similar to the roman hastatus but these still use the hasta (spear) that was abandoned by the romans in favor of the pilum.

Reenactment, I guess they are Samnite ensiferi ( from ensiferum -> Sword bearer) they act as skirmishing troops, throwing javelins.

I hate to say this, but it seems like Samnites had a lot of swag. Maybe that's why they yolo'd. :razz:

Bad pun is bad, but I think we're missing weapons, at least I haven't seen many here.

Scene from the episodes of the Samnite Wars.
  Above: the delivery of a "hasta pura", the highest military honor for the best soldier. Middle: scene from "destrarum iunctio" between Quintus Fabius, the Roman commander, and M. Fannius, a brave soldier (or a Samnite?).
  Fragmentary wall painting, dated between 300 and 280 BC  from the Esquiline Necropolis.
  Montemartini, Rome.

A pic I found about a battle between Romans and Samnites. I don't know that do you guys add any stuff to added factions anymore but why not to post these anyway? :smile:

Battle of Bovianum (305 B.C.)

I have no idea where this should be, so I hope it's here.

You may have it already, but there's this doctoral thesis by a guy named Michael Burns called The cultural and military significance of the South Italic Warrior's Panoply from the 5th to the 3rd centuries BC.
367 pages long if we don't count the abstract, acknowledgements and list of figures (377 if we do). From page 289 to 377 is all maps and illustrations, some of which may be useful (there's four about shield blazons and seven about tunic patterns, for example).

Like I said, you may have it, but I don't know what you have and don't, so I mention it just to be sure.

and here i was able to find an link to the pages of that book

We had some elements of the book scattered here and there and now this is pretty much a "compilation" of what we had and plenty more. We had in mind to improve a bit the italic tribes and cie and this will definitely help, thanks.
