Roman Guards (strelets)

Taken from  Strelets Caesar Army on the March and Caesar Army Before Battle,. I´m only going to have a Contubernium to guard the town, "Scalpere Aedificare" (which has actually seen some Progress recently) as having any more would mean a barracks, barracks means more officer types and then nags and.....
Anyway, they´ve got the cushy Job of being the face of law and order in Scalpere Aedificare.

For some reason, they have a "I don´t give a ****!" look about them, the poses and the expressions on thier faces. Even when the Decanus is shouting at them on one of the rare moments he´s in uniform and not drunk, they show only mild interest.
The two  from the "on the march" set have different shields to the "before battle" set..which is a pity, but they make good "patrolling around town" bods
Even whilst getting a telling off, one of the legionaries is more interested in Scratching his butt than actually listening.
A Military official has turned up. He outranks them but as can be seen from the way the Legionary on the right is looking at him, you can tell any orders will be carried out grudgingly.
Over at Loki`s Great Hall blog, the Grand Milestone of 200 followers has been reached and there´s a  lovely limited edition Scottish warlord up for grabs in a giveaway. To find out the "rules" and enter get over there and join in :-D
