Roman soldier v.2
Legionary
About this creation

<-------





Roman legionaries are tough, professional troops with good armour and superb weapons. Their hallmarks are discipline, obedience and tactical flexibility. When approaching enemy fortifications, for example, they can use the turtle formation, or testudo, overlapping their shields for protection. Every legionary's flexible banded armour, the lorica segmenta, is of very good quality, as is the rest of his gear: a metal helmet and a large curved shield. They fight with two throwing spears (the pilum, plural pila) and a short stabbing sword, the gladius. Each pilum has a soft iron shaft behind the piercing head that is designed to bend as soon as it hits a target, making it impossible to pull out and throw back. Embedded in a shield a pilum hampers an enemy. Embedded in a man, it usually kills. Once the pila have been thrown, legionaries close and continue fighting with the stabbing gladius. The lorica segmenta armour was adopted because it was cheaper to make and offered more protection as the earlier chainmail.

very nice...im stumped on how you got the visors on there without using one of those neck stud things... i also know how you made the sword or atleast i think, i have one that looks just like it except the top of mine is round so i am going to asume you cut the point in.

Awesome, that is what describes this, just awesome. 1 question though, did you just balance the silver visor's there on his shoulders, or did you use putty or something to hold them?
