|Severan Middle Imperial
|More Roman Tents
A group of barbarian prisoners guarded by Legionarii are questioned
by a mounted Roman General.
Tents by Baueda.
As with all my camps the tents aren't stuck to the base allowing them to be replaced by
tents, huts etc.
The prisoners and the farrier in the background are by Donnington Miniatures
Other figs are by Essex.
|Equites Alares Roman Cavalry
supported by skirmishing archers and led by a General, advance.
|Moorish light cavalry supported by Roman Horse Archers
|Four units of Legionarii screened by Lanciarii skirmishers and flanked by Auxilia Archers and
In impetus Lanciarii can fight as skirmishers or as light infantry.
For my Severan army I chose to use Essex lightly armoured Auxilia figures as Lanciarii.
The Essex figures designed for Middle Imperial Lanciarii are really more Aurelian, or better Late
Imperial Roman, rather than those which would be likely serving with Lorica Segmentata wearing
|Combined Lanciarii deployed as a unit of light infantry.
These are the Essex Praetorian figure in scale armour with box plume removed.
|Equites Contorarium, Roman cavalry with lances, precursors of Cataphracts
supporting Roman Auxilia.
The Auxilia unit with the square shield is a unit of Cohors Scutata.
|More Auxilia about to mix it with Dacian warbands
|Roman bolt shooters with a General, Legionarii and Equites Contorarium in support.
The Legionarii and the General are all by Corvus Belli. The Legionarii are wearing capes and
scutums and so are sold as Early Imperials. However, squared scutums were still carried early into
the Middle Imperial period so I am happy with the compromise. I like to think that they have a
'grizzled veteran' look about them.
I added an Imagnifier, a standard bearer carrying an image of the Emperor on a pole.
I have actually based these on an Impetus sized base rather than DBX style basing. These
particular figures are slightly larger than the Essex ones so look better when on a single base
rather than cram them into 40mm frontage.
|Corvus Belli also sell a terrific Roman work party...
Notice the Junior Officer using the Groma to check alignment and his assistant scribe,
Legionarii using Dolabrae and the Centurion with the vitis about to lay about a Legionarius who
is carrying half full buckets.
There are a couple of Essex figures in here also from their pack TT18
(Assorted Roman Camp Workers pack)

The mules are the nicest I've seen in 15mm
