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.

  3. Not sure about the blue at the moment, so I was thinking about dry brushing a little dust over them to tone it down.

  4. Legio VII Claudia HQ's were in Viminacium (near Kostolac in Serbia) from Nero till the end of his history. I saw only in the Trajan Column blue shieds for Roman Legionary (legionary shields not auxiliary). Below there are some links but it is hard to individuate the blue shields. Please consider that if you need more (graphic) information of the Marcomannic wars in Rome there is also another Column (called Colonna di Marco Aurelio - Marco Aurelio column) where there are some scenes of battle.

    This is my email Rekost76@yahoo.it. Marcomannic wars are not one of my preferred period but I have some materials ... unfortunately in Italian but if you need I can try to share you.

    1. Yes Aventine Miniatures, IMHO, the best 28mm Romans on the market.
