If there the right scale empire would be the best fit.

If you are willing to do an entire army of conversions, based around a Roman theme, I would almost go Lizardmen. These guys would make great Saurus, BUT you would have to do the entire army, not just shove them in.
Would be sweet, though.
Light infantry with pilums=Skinks
Elephant with Hoodah= Stegadon
Could even bring in Roman mythology with Cyclop Kroxigors.
Slaan, Salamanders, etc, you could go nuts,

You should use ROMAN models, from various sources, and use the Lizardman codex. I think if you had any empire models in the army and you were using the Lizzies codex it would be even more confusing.

While being an elite army, I think elves would be to squishy for Roman feel. And a bit on the fast side as well.
I think you want a higher armour, stronger, tough leadership(well drilled) feel for units like Legionnaires, while skinks will give you what you need for the lighter troops. Skink javelins for pilums is awesome(personally)
Also, GW has a Warhammer Historical game, the models for which would be GW tourney legal as well.

But I can't seem to find miniature. I'm pretty sure they exist, I just can't find them.

K. I'm full of it. There aren't any miniatures yet, apparently.
Sorry.
Still a great idea though. And when are you going to get to an official GW tourney in Colorado anyway Wink

Yes, but if you go that way, you're going to have to go all the way. If you just add a random Roman unit to an army, it will just look weird and be confusing for your opponent.

Sure. Unless you are building them for an official GW run event like a Grand Tournament. Adepticon, Feast of Blades, Tacticon and Ghenghis Con are VERY liberal with their counts as rulings. Colorado is a great state to be in for that. At Tacticon fantasy last year, a guy had his entire Trolls army using Warmachine trolls from Privateer. I'm sure you could, if well and clearly modelled, use any properly sized Roman models as counts-as Lizardmen.

Can't wait, this should be awesome.
To look at, not play, I hate lizardmen, slaans, and the cursed life magic! 3 dice for leadership, really? I'm looking at you Slammer!
