Second Rank Legionnaire Advancing with Pilum Lowered, Wearing Scale Armor (6th Legion Green Shield with silver shield boss)
When a Cohort advanced into battle, the front rank lowered their Pilum, the second rank did the same, and the third rank shouldered their Pilum. The second rank were trained to advance with their pilum protruding to the right so that should the enemy attack them, the second rank could also engage at the same time as the front rank. Although the popular image of the Legion is one of uniformity, there were several forms of armour protection employed, including chain mail, Segmenta, and scale armour.
Our legionnaire wears beautifully detailed scale armour and is painted to an extremely high standard.
The E version comes with the 6th Legion green shield and a silver shield boss.
The 6th “Ironclad” Legion were raised during Republican times, probably in Spain under Pompey, and were then based mainly in Judea, where, like the 1st Legion, their records disappear around 4 CE. The 6th Legion’s shield design featured a Bull on a green background, depicting their Spanish heritage.
Please note: Because this figure's Pilum is skewered more to the right than ROM001, he is only suitable for the second rank in a marching formation. This way his Pilum sits nicely along side ROM001's Pilum at the front, ready to engage any enemy that dare to take on the might of Rome!
