Khurasan previews Principate Romans

Post by khurasan_miniatures » Wed Aug 06, 2014 3:47 pm

We are very pleased to preview our Early Imperial Roman range -- the late Principate -- in 15mm scale.

The models were made especially for the late part of the era of the "good emperors," and in particular Marcus Aurelius. This was the period in which the empire was at its height, and Gibbon even argued that it was the only time in history when "the happiness of a great people was the sole object of government."

Of course there were still wars aplenty--they were Romans after all! Even in Marcus Aurelius's reign there was a major war with the Germans and Sarmatians, war with Parthia, and the possibility of rebellion in Syria.

We will be releasing:

Image
Legionaries with pila or swords (both are provided)

Image
Auxilia with lancea or swords (again both are provided)

Image
Archers

Image
Image
Infantry command including many standard options--even an imago to go with the Emperor

Image
Equites (Cavalry)

Image
Equites command

Image
Emperor (Marcus Aurelius) and a high ranking roman commander

Note that the legionaries in this period wore beards and moustaches in emulation of the emperor, but it's quite likely they would have done so anyway when on campaign.

These will be released in a few days. Cheers for looking.

The archer pulling an arrow from his quiver is especially cool.
