|Eight eastern auxiliary archers to support Legio II.|
|There are four poses, two kneeling and two standing.|
I now have two units of these guys. They have been surprisingly effective in the two games I've used them. They don't kill enemy units but they are great for putting some wounds on them and softening them up. When two blocks of heavy infantry go toe to toe it's nice to have the enemy already a little bit weaker.
|The detail is great all the way around. These are really nice castings.|
This is the last of my light troops for the II legion. I plan on a second legion at some point. They will have western archer auxiliaries. I'm also thinking of adding some Cretan archers and perhaps some javelin men. I think most people tend to think of the Roman army as massed ranks of red and steel clone infantry. The auxiliaries are a great way to add some color and variety to those ten cohorts of bloody minded sameness.
