REP02 Republican Roman Command (Advancing)

Price: £6.50




This product contains four REP02 Republican Roman Command (Advancing) miniatures.


Republican Rome lacked the standing army of later centuries, instead obligating the citizenry to fight in seasonal campaigns as part of their duty to the state. This lack of professional soldiery left the Romans at a severe disadvantage at the start of the Second Punic War, and the lack of tactical flexibility contributed to the cataclysmic defeats at Trebbia, Trasimene and Cannae. Rome would later adopt the Fabian strategy as a counter to Carthaginian superiority, and the arrival of innovative tacticians like Publius Cornelius Scipio (later known as Africanus) would ultimately win them the war.
