First Legion

First Legion presents the first wave of enemies in the Age of Rome range of hand painted military miniatures, the Ancient Germans! The Ancient Germans were some of Imperial Rome’s most entrenched foes. Though the Romans won many of the Wars, they were never fully able to subjugate Germania the way that they had most of their other enemies. Ancient Germany remained the northern border of the Roman Empire due to the fierce resistance. Throughout the period of late Republic and Empire, there were a series of wars and uneasy truces that would last until the late Empire when the Ancient German tribes were among the many who went on to sack Rome. Though useable throughout the entire period, they have presented the Ancient Germans during the Marcomannic Wars between 166 and 180 AD facing off against Marcus Aurelius. So these figures are perfect for such tribes as the Marcomanni, the Quadi, and so many others. They will make a wonderful and much needed addition to any serious Roman toy soldier collection!

A Germanic leader shouting his defiance at the hated Legionaries and carrying a sword with shield.
