Original Laing Box. Not sure if this was from my original Romans as i did keep it but i think this may have come from a later bulk lot 2nd hand purchase which leads me to ponder where is my original box as i am never the one to discard anything. ie: Hoarder. Or was it my original Romans box..I guess if another box doesnt show up it might have been???

Another thought just dawned on me. The illustrations seem too impressive...
could this be a box that Australian suppliers cobbled together to sell them using illustrations from well known publications..possibly simply a photocopy stuck on top. I did recieve this from the guys selling at Lindfield club. They were importing and its likely they could repackage them in army packs using their own packaging.

question: is this the box overseas buyers received their figures in.

No - that is an original box, as I have seen one from another source - BUT, I think it is from one of the 'ready made' armies that John Mitchell sold using Peter Laing figures (at least I believe that was the source of the other box I saw)

Yes if this box did have my romans in it was an army box but not painted figures.
