First Legion: Latest Releases

All the latest releases from this truly premier league maker, together with one or two additional bits of eye candy thrown in for good measure. Enjoy, as ever!

First Legion

New Releases Expected November 2014!
Roman Praetorian Guard Fighting

We are pleased to present the second release covering the Imperial Roman Praetorian Guard! While the first release portrayed the Praetorians marching, this time we've portrayed them heavily engaged in combat protecting the Emperor Marcus Aurelius. The Roman Praetorian Guard was the personal bodyguard of the Roman Emperors. In addition to their political role of being the strongest armed military force within Rome, they took part in various campaigns and battles including those of Marcus Aurelius as they were at least the equal of any other Roman Legion in terms of combat effectiveness. Presented here in striking combat poses, these figures are designed to be fully engaged with our enemies of Rome. With their imperial purple colors, black leather lorica segmentata, and photo etched steel pilum and gladius, this release is certainly the most striking Roman release we've done for our incredibly popular Glory of Rome figure range.

Woodland Indians

While part of our American Revolution product range, these figures are of course perfectly useful for a much wider time period including but not limited to the French & Indian War. They can represent such tribes as the Iroquois speaking Cayuga, Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca, and Huron or Algonquian speaking Abenaki, Chippewa, Delaware, or Mohicans. The Eastern Indians were the first to make contact with European settlers and had both periods of peace and trade as well as periods of conflict with various tribes and with European settlers and armies siding with one side or the other, thus allowing these figures to be used as allies to either side or even fighting each other. From a design perspective, our Woodland Indians have provided us a wonderful opportunity to produce very colorful and ornate figures that really highlight our strengths as a figure company. Simply put, these are the finest figures available today and we will continue to expand upon this sub-range to include both additional fighting and non-combat/tribal life scenes over the years to come.
