The Ballista & Crew Set

The Ballista & Crew Set
The Ballista, sometimes called the bolt-thrower was an ancient missile weapon that launched a deadly projectile at a distant target. Originally designed by the Greeks, the Roman Army improved and adapted it to meet their more mobile military requirements as they campaigned throughout the Mediterranean and across Europe. Because of its mobility and adaptability it could also be used on ships as well as to defend fixed fortifications. Many different sizes and styles were employed however the most numerous in service were the smaller, easily portable versions similar to the one K&C has made. A crew of three Legionaries was usually employed to transport the weapon, assemble it and fully operate it in battle.

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
