New First Legion February Releases!

Glory of Rome


The backbone of the Roman Empire was certainly her Legions. For our initial release of Imperial Romans, we presented Legio I Minerva and Legio VI Victrix. Due to the success and rapid sellout of these figures, we are now following them up with Legio I Adiutrix and Legio II Augusta. The new legions feature unbleached tunics and skirts, Adiutrix with the classic “wreathe” shield and Augusta with the Eagle on a black shield. Legio I Adiutrix was formed in 68 AD and took part in a variety of battles and campaigns including Germanic/Marcomannic Wars under Marcus Aurelius, the final battle of which was featured in the opening of the film “Gladiator.” Legion II Augusta was one of the longest serving Legions, formed in the late republic and serving through the 4th Century most notably participating in the construction and defense of Hadrian’s Wall. Both are are a wonderful complement to Minerva and Victrix and allow for dioramas to now feature multiple legions each with a unique look deployed side by side.

Thirty Years War


The Thirty Years War was from 1618 to 1648 and was one of the bloodiest, most destructive conflicts in human history.     The roots of the war grew out of conflict between Catholics and Protestants but over time the war spread to involve most of the great European powers of the age and became much less about religion and much more about political hegemony.      The destruction brought by the war had a far reaching effect and was one of first examples of the concept of total war where civilian loss of life far outpaced battlefield losses through a combination of disease and famine.   In some nations, total population had been reduced by as much as 25% over this thirty year period.   As such a
militarily diverse period of history with so many belligerents involved, the types of figures we can create is limitless.   And of course all will be done to our extremely high levels of sculpting and painting.   We have launched the range with a release a bit on the lighter side with our rendition of the “Three Musketeers.”   These figures have an even higher level of sculpting and painting then our normal figures

Retreat from Russia


This is an incredibly atmospheric piece perfectly capturing the “feel” of Napoleon’s Retreat from Russia. This peasant’s sledge is being driven by an Artillery Train driver and the passengers consist of a wounded Italian infantry officer being held by a Cantiniere while a wounded French soldier sits on the rear conveying the misery he is enduring in the sub-zero temperatures.
