Ofcourse, if there is a greek weapons and armour thread, there has to be a Roman-themed counterpart as well. (sorry for this shameless ripoff, Byz. ) So the question is: how do you folks think about the Roman arms and Armour? I kinda like the Gladius-style sword: short n nasty, perfect for slashing someones guts all over. As for armour: I am quite fond of the Lorica squamata (scalemail) type of armour, as well as the Lorica segmentata variant, introduced by Emperor Trajan. Recently, I discovered Albion made the perfect Gladius for me so it's next on my 'goin to get' list as soon as my finances recover from the custom Anduril blow. (have yet to tell my girlfriend about that). Sadly, this won't be until early 2005. (that's the only thing I hate about swords: it's an addiction).
