Roman Unarmoured Legionaries

AUC10

Roman Unarmoured Legionaries / Raw or lightened legion / Antesignani. Pack of 8 figures (four different poses) Often the need to gain a numerical advantage resulted in hastily raised and poorly equipped units taking the field to bolster the size of the army. Such newly recruited raw legionaries were usually kept back in reserve or to defend the camp. At times legionaries voluntarily discarded their heavy lorica hamata to run, march faster over extended periods or cross difficult terrain. Antesignani were elite legionnaires trained to fight outside the heavy infantry’s battle formation in a support role. They were Armed with spears, several light javelins and retained the gladius and the shield, but they were more lightly armoured to increase mobility. For all these cases these figures are just perfect! Can also be used for "imitation legionaries".
