    Default Dudes the modern legions are failing(something funny)

    http://i14.tinypic.com/6q2pem8.jpg


    The fact that they let the Barbarians get to them without a pilum volley is fail .

    The all steel Scutum's are awesome . That makes up for the lack of pilum's .

    If it's a recent pic, I'd guess T'bilisi (Georgia)!

    With all those troubles with the elections there...

    The closest thing you'll find to watching Romans fight in the modern world is riot police in all parts of hte world.
    Fighting isn't about winning, it's about depriving your enemy of all options except to lose.

    The rioters should ambush.

    or just clump their unit and break the legionaries' formation.

    What you don't see is the next shot when that Amazon warrior has her leg cleaved right from her body.

    Riot police need to get trained by the Roman Reanactor guys from RAT.

    I mean not only are they missing the pilum, but they also:

    1- Hold the shild like a hoplite's aspis. That is with a bent arm and their forearm and hand holding the shield.
    ---this also limits their ability to use the shild as an offensive weapon to knock down and shove people.
    2- The shild lacks a boss.
    3- They swing their clubs instead of stab with them (btw it hurts like a mofo to get stabbed with a club).

    those are the most notable errors.

    They also have the lorica kevlarata, which wasn't invented until long after the fall of the roman empire!

    I don't think present-day Russia is (yet) in so bad a condition resorting to cannibalism were common.
    "Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. --- Proof of the existence of the FSM, if needed, can be found in the recent uptick of global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. Apparently His Pastaness is to be worshipped in full pirate regalia. The decline in worldwide pirate population over the past 200 years directly corresponds with the increase in global temperature. Here is a graph to illustrate the point."
