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.

Legio V Macedonica (2nd Cohort)

When Emperor Marcus Aurelius had to fight against the Marcomanni tribes, the V Macedonica was heavily involved in this campaign. At the beginning of the reign of Commodus, the V Macedonica helped defeated the Sarmatians. The Fifth later supported Septimius Severus in his fight for the purple.
