Product Description

Cast two 1st Century Roman Legionaries from Prince August Rubber Moulds. These figures are 28mm scale. You can cast from this mould hundreds of times. Officers are available as cast figures.

Rome was a superpower two thousand years ago, and one of its greatest strengths at that time was its incredibly skilled armies, broken up into Legions of over 5000 men. The primary soldier was called a Legionary and they were well trained, well armed and very fit men, many of which had decades of experience as the average career of a soldier was 20 years. They fought using short swords and short javelins and used large shields in close formations to defeat less organised enemies. Of course they had auxilleries and cavalry and even artillery to support them, but the military power of Rome depended on these battle hardened fighters.

This black rubber mould does not include any casting accessories so if you have not any, please purchase a starter kit first. Adding metal to your order will give you hours of pleasure as you can cast up to seven figures from a single ingot. Model Metal is a white metal alloy that contains tin, lead and bismuth, which melts at low temperatures and therefore does not wear out the mould as much as pewter would.

The Roman Military Machine (04:57)
Roman soldiers were fighting men, first and foremost. Constant and rigorous training kept them at peak conditions, and ready for action at any time.In the mid-Republic each Roman legion had an equivalent complement of allied infantry equipped and modeled after the legion and a three times larger complement of cavalry. The army of the Late Republic and Early to Mid-Empire consisted of legionaries and auxiliaries. The auxiliaries were named so after the earlier allied complement, but with structure and equipment differing from the legionaries. They were non-Roman citizens, recruited mostly from the Roman provinces with less pay than the legionaries, but at the end of their service they would be granted Roman citizenship. In the Late Roman army the distinction was between comitatenses, reserve troops and limitanei, border troops.
