From the blue theme, these legionaries must have been from the roman house of Scippii. The earlier legions weren't as armored, instead it was leather, steel was only worn by officers. But around 230 BC they revolutionized the uniform and made these guys pretty smart of them too. After they where given better armor, equipment and training, they became one of the most elite fighting forces in the world at the time.
Blue was highly rare in the roman army from what I read if I may just include. The late Pratorians wore a kind of dark purple slash blue but in the end it came down to purple, yellow and white whilst the rest of the army (little this is known) wore mixtures of red and white tunics and scarfs, I say white is occasional cause some men didn't really want to be bothered with dying their tunics. Its off since Romans were well known for their red loving habits but really it was just a preferation in the army. Soo uh... U gents continue your fued if you'd like
Well SOR-RY. I'm just taking a wild guess. I know the romans main color was red because they believed they where the sons of the god mars (of war) but I heard the blue shields are for amphibious assault units. God...
if i was that centurion i would certain members of this cohort on hard labour, this is the roman army, not a holiday in the south of france ! i love the legions, they ruled and there armor ruled harder!
