This is the third Roman Army I painted since I discovered the WRG Ancient Rules in the mid to late 1970s. The first was an Airfix Roman army. The 2nd was a 25mm metal army I purchased and fought with from the early 1980s until I moved to Montreal. By the years 2000 to 2010 my 2nd Roman army were entitled to retire after 25 years of honourable service. The figures that were now available looked fantastic when compared to the primitive sculpts from the 1970s and early 1980s, which comprised my Legion. Most were painted and entered service before I started my blog. They were never done justice. Most of the new Legion were recruited from the Warlord Games, Wargames Foundry Miniatures and Black Tree Design areas of the Empire.
1) The Legionnaires, the first wave of units - 4 Cohorts each of 24 Figures
2) The 2nd wave of Legionnaires - Three cohorts, each of 24 figures.
3) The AUXILLIA - 5 Units of Auxiliary Javelin/Spearmen - each of 16 Figures.
4) Auxiliary Archers - 3 Units - 2 Eastern Empire - 1 Western Empire -Total 56 Figures
That is enough for today. Part two will be siege equipment and Cavalry.
