II Romans

The second Imperial Roman unit is mustered out!


Legionary Support Archers


While not the main arm of a Legion, the role of missile troops increased gradually over the life of the Empire. 

Black Tree Designs figures once again (as indeed will be all of the Imperial Romans). Too bad they don't do some Cavalry to go with them!


Et mittentis sagittam Legio 
(Having no working knowledge of Latin, that's supposed to mean something like "Archers of the Legion")

  1. I like these archers a lot! Is there only one pose?
    Really good to see a line of BTD figures that I have not seen before. You are doing a good job of marketing these figures to the masses.

    1. There is at least one other pose for these "Western Archers", which we will be seeing in due course, and at least 2 for "Eastern Archers" as well. The BTD Early Imperial Roman line is very extensive, aside from lacking cavalry and mounted commanders.
