The Command Elements Of Victrix’s Roman Army Come Together

December 1, 2016 by brennon

The Early Roman Army from Victrix has been coming together nicely over the last few weeks and the new Command Elements are now starting to come together for your Legion.

Roman Centurion

Leading the way we have the Roman Centurion with a variety of different weapon options. He has a number of different weapon options including the vine-stick or vitis which was used to show a Centurion’s authority. It meant that they were already ready to dole out punishment to those who crossed them.

Roman Optio

Next up we have the Roman Optio who would serve almost as the second in command to the Centurion. They would stand behind the ranked up soldiers making sure to keep order and discipline. Additionally, if the position of Centurion became vacant for whatever reason they would normally be promoted to fill that spot.

Lastly, we have the Musician and we don’t need to tell stalwart veterans of the tabletop how vital they can be on the tabletop.

Those horns would send out quite the note across the battlefield. I don’t think I’d really want to be holding onto that when I was right in the middle of the fighting but hopefully my fellow soldiers would protect me!

What do you think of the Roman Command element we’re seeing here?
