Product Description

These are eight 28mm scale metal 1st Century Roman Legionaries using their pilums or javelins. Alternatively you can buy the moulds for these Roman Legionaries. Officers are available as cast figures.

The core unit in any Roman army was its Legionaries, drawn usually from the peasant stock and usually Roman in origin, however later as Rome expanded, non Roman people were recruited with the promise of Roman citizenship (a valuable bonus) after a period of service. Conditions were harsh, with fierce training, heavy equipment, tedious duties and if unfortunate enough to be part of a Legion posted at the edges of the Empire, high risk as Rome had many dangerous and hostile neighbours. The most common weapons were short stabbing swords and small javelins, called pilums. These were thrown at the enemy before melee combat began.

The enemy would face a storm of javelins that would cause injury or death and disrupt defensive formations, before the Romans charged in to capitalise on the chaos.

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.
