First Legion

This is the second First Legion release covering the Imperial Roman Praetorian Guard! While the first release portrayed the Praetorians marching, this time they are portrayed heavily engaged in combat protecting the Emperor Marcus Aurelius. The Roman Praetorian Guard was the personal bodyguard of the Roman Emperors.

In addition to their political role of being the strongest armed military force within Rome, they took part in various campaigns and battles including those of Marcus Aurelius as they were at least the equal of any other Roman Legion in terms of combat effectiveness. Presented here in striking combat poses, these figures are designed to be fully engaged with the enemies of Rome.

With their imperial purple colors, black leather lorica segmentata, signum, and photo etched steel gladius, this release is very striking! This Praetorian is the assigned signifier, but that doesn't mean he can't fight with the cohort if the situation demands it.

A signifer was a standard bearer of the Roman legions. He carried a signum (standard) for a cohort or century. Each century had a signifer (thus, there were 59 in a legion) and within each cohort the first century's signifer would be the senior.
