Product Description

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

Roman Legionaries during the 1st Century CE served on average for 20 years and at the end of their service they were promised some land that they could retire on as farmers. The traditional weapons for any of these soldiers was a gladius, or short sword, used for stabbing rather than slashing. Their secondary weapon was usually a pilum, or short throwing javelin. This was used prior to any charge to weaken an enemy formation. The Legionary had segmented armour, a helmet, a shield and a backpack of supplies. Discipline was extremely harsh and training gruelling, including long marches with heavy packs and lots of manual labour and military drills.

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.
