It’s almost inconceivable that the finely-crafted Lorica Segmentata of standard Roman Legionaries wouldn’t be enough to grind any foe into a hobnail-churned mess on the battlefield. However, opponents such as the Dacians (more on them someday soon) and their limb-severing falx swords required Imperial armourers to add additional forearm protection (presumably borrowed from the gladiatorial arena) known as Manica to keep Legionary arms attached to their owners.
For a while now, we’ve been teasing our loyal forum members and anyone who would listen at shows we’ve attended with rumours of hard as campaign bread veterans for Imperial Roman forces that we’ve been working on. Well, your patience is now rewarded as we are chuffed to bits to be able to show off our superb plastic Imperial Roman Veterans to you:
These battle-damaged, bloodied, and steadfast veterans are more than ready to face down any challenges your opponents might throw at you. They say pictures are worth a thousand words, so just take a look at all of the useful bits which you get on both new sprues.

The gorgeous box art as illustrated by the one and only Peter Dennis:
“On my command, unleash hell!”
From their bandaged heads to their battered shields, our Imperial Roman Veterans simply exude combat prowess and experience. You’ll also notice the all-new Centurion model for this set. Dead proper indeed!
These fantastic new plastic miniatures will be available for pre-order next week and on sale very soon. Keep watching the Warlord Games website and newsletter for the latest info.
