Product Description

Cast in five minutes two Roman Legionaries in white metal. These figures are 28mm scale. You can cast from this mould hundreds of times. Officers are available as cast figures.

Legionaries were well trained, strong, armored troops that belonged to Roman Legions, formations of over 5000 men. These Legions were sent all over the extensive territories of Rome, from Britain to Africa. The soldiers commonly used short stabbing swords in combat so that their blades did not become stuck in the enemies shields or bodies and yanked from their grip. A secondary weapon were short projectiles called pilum, that rained down on the often poorly armoured enemies with deadly purpose. Legionaries were fiercely loyal to their Legion, and its commander, often following him even into rebellion against the Roman Emperor if needbe. Their armour and fighting style varied over the centuries to adapt to the changing situation the Roman Empire faced, but during the 1st Century CE they wore the famous segmented armor, often hardened leather or metal.

It is important to have the casting equipment already or to purchase it alongside this mould. Our Model Metal is a white metal alloy of tin, lead and bismuth that extends the life of any mould hugely and provides finely detailed castings. On average you should be able to cast up to 7 figures from a single bar of metal.

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.
