Welcome to Raglan's Imperial Roman Wargaming Blog:

This blog is dedicated to wargaming the Marcomannic Wars 168-175AD and the Roman Civil War during the Year of the Five Emperors 194AD. Both these wars are under reported in reference material, due to the fact that by this time in Roman history, Rome had almost lost the ability to catalogue and maintain its historic events for posterity. As I work through these 28mm wargaming projects, I will attempt to compile information that will be useful to both myself and other wargamers who are interested in this period of Rome's history.

28mm Imperial Roman Army Collection

I have been thinking about and planning a 28mm Imperial Roman collection for sometime without actually getting around to doing it. Then when Aventine Miniatures released an EIR range, I succumb to temptation and took the plunge. The units that I have selected to represent in miniature, will be useful for wargaming both the Marcomannic Wars and Civil War during the time of the Year of the Five Emperors. I like to base my wargaming formations loosely around historical orders of battle, I think this adds a little flavour to the game/campaign. Essentially this collection is based on vexillations from four different legions.  
 
CinC
Personal Bodyguard - 18 figures

Legio V Macedonica
1st Cohort - 24 figures
2nd Cohort - 18 figures
3rd Cohort - 18 figures
4th Cohort - 18 figures
5th Cohort - 14 figures
(this legion was active in Germania, Dacia and the Civil Wars).
 
Legio XII Fulminata
2nd Cohort - 18 figures
3rd Cohort - 18 figures
4th Cohort - 12 figures
5th Cohort - 18 figures
(this legion was active in Germania and the Civil Wars).
 
Legio III Italica
4th Cohort - 18 figures
5th Cohort - 18 figures
8th Cohort - 12 figures
(this legion was active in Germania and the Civil Wars).
 
Praetorians
1st Cohort - 18 figures
2nd Cohort - 18 figures
3rd Cohort - 18 figures

Auxillia Infantry
8 Cohorts - 18 figures each

Auxilla Cavalry
24 figures

As this 28mm project progresses, I will add historical information about the each legion with photos of it represented in miniatures.
