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 X Fretensis 1st Cohort

Legio X Fretensis, its name means 'the legion of the sea straits'.
Miniatures from A&A Miniatures.
After the murder of the emperor Publius Helvius Pertinax in 193AD, X Fretensis sided with General Pescennius Niger, who proclaimed himself emperor. However, he was defeated by Lucius Septimius Severus. Almost immediately, civil war broke out between the Jews and Samarians in Palestine, and it seems that the Tenth came to blows with VI Ferrata.
However, we can not be certain about this interpretation of the events.
