Show here your Roman soldier impression
#1
Why don't you post a photo of your roman soldier impression (individual), fully equipped and in the different periods? I know that many photos are already on the groups websites, but gathering here all the photos of us (the no-group re-enactors too) and creating a lasting gallery just here could be really fine...

So c'mon guys! Take a pic of you (not too large) and post it, not those flashing ones in your living room with your cat, but take some good pics in the nature with no modern signs, while marching, fighting, or simply posing in a fine background with a proud and glorious look... Just add a very little text. Show your fine roman gear, eagles, signa, uexilla too, but don't say "cheese" when take the photo... Big Grin

Valete,

Well here goes, not my best side mind or a soldier, the first is me in gladiator garb and the second is me as a stand in aquilifer ... the officer, that became a slave that became a gladiator, who defied an emperor ... yawn<br>

Well guys, the offer for a page or pages of all types of soldier on RA.com is still open... So if this takes off, I could probably collect them all and set up a page on the site. <p>Greets<br>

Great photos! Let's create here that gallery as Jasper tells, then he will put all the gathered RAT members photos in the roman re-enactment hall of fame (even if it's not for fame, but just for us).

I believe it could be really a nice thing: so, photos!

This is me in the Dan's Legio XIIII G.M.V.:

This is my brother Massimo in the same legion

Well, here I am during our September festival, with Cohors Prima Gallica (plus odd members of Roma Antiqua and Legio I Germanica) in the background. 8)

It\'s all an accident, an accident of hands. Mine, others, all without mind, from one extreme to another, but neither works nor will ever.

Lazy? Is this word known in the roman Army? <br>
<br>
So, I propose to you a compromise: on my part I'll send you by e-mail all the photos of the not RAT members reenactors I have and on your part you'll right click here and save directly in your folders... A good deal, D'NTYT?<br>
<br>
Great photos Aitor and Valerius!<br>
Aitor, that centurio in background will be surely put in the Guinnes World Record for the bigger transverse crest ever...<br>
I wonder him in a windy day...<br>
<br>
Finally what a promising gallery I begin to see! Commilitones, just try to keep the photos size acceptable even by the not so powerful PCs members.<br>

Titus,<br>
The centurio is Billy Flood, from Roma Antiqua. His goose feathers crest is a welcome depart from the ususal horsehair ones and equally attested on tombstones (nothing stated about the length of the feathers, it is true...)<br>
And here's Billy in a more close-up pic.<br>
