Roman legionary by joriavlis Roman legionary by joriavlis
Hello there! Do you remember me? Maybe not, it was so long time ago since I gave news.

I'm trying to do some new pictures, mostly romans (and another great digital painting is coming...).

This one is an illustration for my new website and my passion of all times : roman reenactment, at [link] ( InAciem.com ).

This legionary wears a lorica segmentata. In real life, I'm now reenacting a roman legionary, but I use the Lorica Hamata (mail).

:D You're back! I didn't believe it for a second when I read your name. It's great to see something from you again.

Your site is also fun :) I've always wondered about reenactment, so please post more when you can, it's interesting!

Reenactment is almost like drawing, but in real life. I'll post more here and there :)

Thanks for not forgetting me! XP

I can't possibly forget you, what you do is unique. Plus, I think you're the only non-Romanian who has ever posted a drawing of Dacians here :D

Great work! I'm a roman reenactor too, I'm from LEGIO X Fretensis . Two questions to ask you: why type H helmet? I thought it was more common with officers than soldiers. And why is he wearing armour leggings? If I'm not mistaken only centurions wore them. Anyway the drawing is awesome

The helmet is a type J (found in Brigetio). The ocreae and this helmet were specially needed against dacians at the time of Domitian. With no protections, you don't have a chance against their falx. Same thing for the manica.

I'm from the LEG VIII Augusta in France, btw ;)

I see now...btw I'm from LEG X in Russia. And....one more thing I noticed: shouldn't his gladius be hanging on a shoulder strap rather than being attached to the cingilum?

Both are correct. It's legionary's choice.

Nice one! :) Have you played Fallout New Vegas? They have Roman legionary as one of the faction.

oh hey, vous ici ! Sympa le légionnaire. On voit le soin du détail !

J'ai un peu regardé le site de la legVIII, et dis-donc, la qualité générale est assez impressionnante !

Et oui, j'ai fait un dessin, qui l'eu cru?
Je m'amuse assez à jouer "pour de vrai" au légionnaire, on fabrique plein de choses nous mêmes, et surtout, on rencontre le public pour leur dire : "nos ancêtres les romains". Si elle est pas belle la vie?
