Re: 1 C Romans Interested?

Just...wondered. Removing 'The Vicus' tag from your sign in doesn't help me have any thoughts towards your credibility OK. There is a 'look at what has been previosly posted by this poster' option, which I have, and as you are a member of the Vicus, and have not aluded so, I can only treat your que...

Re: when was the roman army in its prime?

Hmmm, very difficult to say, however one thing that invariably shows through is the ability to overcome vastly superior numbers of opponants with a tried and tested form of set pattern warfare, and making a numerically superior opponant fight on terms dictated by the Romans themselves, as happened m...

Scissors and underwear

Question if I may please? Does anyone know when scissors (roughly as we know them today) came into common use as opposed to shears (like the springy ones we always see in junk shops), were they in common use in 14-15C? Also, I understand single leg hose being held up by being pointed either to a dou...

Re: 1 C Romans Interested?

Don't you worry about that Legionary Woodhousio, there will be six other nice and warm legionaries for you to cuddle up with in the 'leather tent', and beating the bush is usually the precursor to 'driven barbarian pilum practice', all good clean fun.

Re: 1 C Romans Interested?

If you are a member of The Vicus, and are happy there what would be the crux of your issue? Let me put this for the final time on this thread, it is a MILITARY SOCIETY which will portray (to start with) a single Contiburnium of Legionaries. To be frank, and honest, and correct, There were no women i...

Re: 1 C Romans Interested?

Just to go over a few things that may need explaining, as Sqamatus has already stated, I chose to approach this forum as opposed to RAT because it offered another angle to more people. RAT is frequented by people who already do Roman or Greek, and it's a smallish proportion of UK re enactors. In my ...

Re: 1 C Romans Interested?

So anyone who is a new poster on this forum is liable to get trolled by your group members if they are doing anything that involves anything Roman? I registered to a different forum from my usual haunt so as to not seem to be trying to steal members from current groups as that is not something I wou...

Re: 1 C Romans Interested?

LWR: I have no comprehension of your first paragraph? What on earth are you on about? There is plenty of cooperation between Roman Groups, it happens all of the time! Just because Roman Re enactment has fewer and smaller groups does not mean anything in itself, there are more medieval groups, and mo...

Re: 1 C Romans Interested?

Oh my, Mr Biggot, you surely live up to your forum persona, you must be covered in tattoo's and have a face like a portcullis and like flowery curtains in your 'batchelor pad' (ahem), but all these things allowing, you still feel the need to try and bluster your way in. Bravo, but a massive fail I'm...

Re: 1 C Romans Interested?

Thank you Gentelmen, it would be nice to try and start something with a clear goal in mind and not giving the illusion to prospective members that it would be OK to wend our way towards a vague and distant dream. :)

1 C Romans Interested?

Interested in 1 C Roman Re Enactment? Looking for like minded individuals who would like to combine to make a Contiburnium of Roman Legionaries. So, we need 8 legionaries and a Centurion (although, saying that we may have one of those on the cards already) and we have a Vexilarius and would need a S...
