Caradoc, Chief of the Britons

Caradoc, Chief of the Britons
Caradoc , called “Caractacus” by the Romans was a 1st Century AD British Chieftain of Catuvellauni tribe, who led the British resistance to the Roman conquest. For almost 10 years, he combined ‘guerrilla’ warfare with set-piece battles to fight the might of Rome.After his final defeat he was handed over to the Romans and, like Vercingetorix before him was sentenced to death.Although a captive in Rome he was allowed to address the Roman senate. His speech made such an impression on the Senators that the Emperor Claudius himself pardoned him and granted him the privilege of living in peace in Rome... a rare honour indeed for a once rebellious leader!

Marching Legionary

Marching Legionary
A classic and extremely useful pose this K&C Legionary carries both a large decorated shield and his throwing “Pilus” (Spear). In addition, his side arms included a “Gladius”, the long fighting sword and the shorter “Pugio” (dagger) for use in close combat situations where the sword was impractical to use. As can be seen this regular Roman soldier is wearing the typical Lorica Segmentata armour of the 1st Century AD.

The Vexillum Bearer

The Vexillum Bearer
The “Vexillum” was a small flag-like object used as a military standard for each Legion in the Roman Army. Each vexillum would normally carry the Legion’s number ( in Roman numerals) and the painted or embroidered symbol of that same Legion. Unlike the normal Legionaries the Bearer would wear a chain-mail vest or even scale armour rather than the usual overlapping plate armour (the Lorica Segmentata). In addition, the “Vexillum Bearer” would wear an animal skin and head on top of his helmet and equipment. Our K&C soldier wears a grey wolf skin pelt and head.

The Primus Pilus

The Primus Pilus
The “Primus Pilus” or Primipilus was the most senior centurion of a Roman Legion. In the Legion, the “Cohort” (of which there were between 6 and 10) became the basic tactical unit of each Legion. The “Cohort” was then composed of 5 to 8 “Centuries”, each commanded by a Centurion assisted by an “Optio,” a soldier who could read and write. The senior Centurion of the Legion and commander of the first Cohort, the Primus Pilus (First Spear) was always, a long-serving soldier and highly experienced advisor to the Legate himself and led the largest century of any particular legion – around 800 soldiers. His command would include cooks, clerks and other non combatants as well as the fighting troops. In modern terms he would be the equivalent of a Major in charge of a large battalion – sized unit. Our K & C “Primus Pilus” is a tough well-decorated veteran of many successful campaigns. His white feathered crest atop his helmet and chest full of victory medallions testify to his senior position

The Legate

The Legate
A “Legatus” (anglicized as Legate) was a General of the Roman Army equivalent to a modern general officer. Being of Senatorial rank, his immediate superior was a Proconsul (provincial governor). The Legate outranked all Military Tribunes and was usually appointed by the Emperor himself. The rank carried great prestige and was much sought after by Rome’s noblest families. In provinces with only one Legion the Legate might also be the provincial governor. In the field the Legate could be distinguished by his elaborate helmet and body armour. Our K&C Legate is mounted on a black arab stallion and carries his own purple crested helmet.

Roman Auxiliary Drinking

Roman Auxiliary Drinking
Patrolling the streets of Jerusalem and other towns in Israel was thirsty work. This auxiliary pauses for a drink. Is it water or wine?

Roman Auxiliary Saluting
The out thrust arm salute originated with Rome's Legions... it was only almost two millennium later it was copied first by Mussolini’s Fascists... and then the Nazis.
