Shields for the Legion

Postby Tiberius Flavius Nerva » Mon Apr 02, 2018 7:03 am

Leg. XI CPF is preparing for a new season! This year we are planning, as almost two thousand years ago, to return to the ancient land of Crimea, where once again raise the standard of the Leg. XI.
As part of an ambitious program to re-equip the Leg. XI (and in the new season we will look even steeper than in the past), our legion workshop took up the production of new fashionable shields with bevelled corners that were in use in the first half of the first century AD.
If you do not yet have a shield, but you really want a cool shield, then contact me, we will make for you a awesome historical shield is not at all expensive, and you can everywhere boast of the chic digem of the Leg. XI.
If you want to make a shield yourself, then contact us, we will give each size and tell all the secrets of the manufacture, that you could even feel on the edge of the earth to be part of the God-protected Leg. XI!

Nerva, I think you forgot to lay out for the general review umbones, which you have already boasted before us. :lol:

Curio Sal.

I'd be interested in the designs for the shield if you'd be willing, Nerva?

Curio, yes, of course, I'm gradually working on completing the shields. I work in my spare time and I make excellent shields of good quality for our guys. In this topic, I want to draw the attention of our citizens to the historical reconstruction of the Roman Legion, 11th of course, so I try to photograph the stages of my work. The final of my work will be a set of authentic shields for the contubernium.
My last work, it's all-solid umbones for shields. All work is carried out on the basis of the workshops of the 11th legion.
