Equipment for the Legions
« on: September 22, 2007, 01:31:58 PM »
In this thread I will endeavor to post pics of the Legions equipment throughout history. Now I am no artist so every pic you see here will have come from the net, but they fit how I see the equipment.  :D




Cheers,

First up is the Imperial Era before fulminata weaponry became widespread in the Legios.




Legionarii with the Legio XII Fulminata stationed in Syria before the First Parthian War.  




NOTE: As I come across pictures that fit the theme I will post them to their proper eras.

Next up is the Fulminata Era before the civil wars and the emergence of Imperator Aratus.


This is the Roman field kit consisting of helmet, banded armor, shield, gladius, pugio, pilum - rifle, and hastula - pistol.


This is a pic of the Legionarii just as they unleash their volley fire.


This is a pic of the legionarii in a movement to contact formation


This is a pic of the mainstay of the Roman Artillery - The Ballistae


This is a pic of a Roman Tormentarius - Artilleryman, in the process of inspecting his ammunition




NOTE: As I come across pictures that fit the theme I will post them to their proper eras.

Next up is the Industrial Era circa 200 years after Imperator Aratus.



Here is a pic of a Legionarii assigned to the Legio XXX Valeria Victrix on the frontlines with the Inca in one of the uncountable skirmishes with that empire.


Here is a pic of the Tribunus of the III Cohors - Legio XXX Valeria Victrix. This picture is of a small interest to religious historians. It seems this officer belonged to the cult of the carpenter, a small sect of the Iudean religion.

Next up is the Era of the Arachnid War.




This is a pic of the Roman Triarius Mark III Powered Armor. it was this armor that finally allowed the Romans to actually enter the Arachnid hives and dig them out so they would not have to glass every single planet occupied by the Bugs.
