Early Imperial Roman Signifer












Here are a few photos of an Early Imperial Roman Signifer, a Series 77 figure (77mm?) that I've had for years, bought back in the mists of time, circa late seventies or early eighties. It has only taken me thirty odd years to get around to painting it! The Signifer is similar to illustrations that I've seen of a late first century AD, Signifer from the Legio XIIII Gemina Martia Victrix, but without a full-face helmet and bearskin pelt.

After posting these photos of this Series 77 Signifer, I came across a Series 77 website. It has photos of some of their great ranges and a history of the company, fascinating stuff for collectors of large scale figures:

  3. Thanks Monty, I didn't realise these Series 77 figures were so collectable, so they are probably a few others around.
