Topic: Legionary Armour
Background: The Pax Romana (prosperous years of the Roman Empire) did not end with Marcus Aurelius. After his death and the mysterious death of his son and successor a new leader has come into power. This new Emperor is a military genius, and has been pushing back the Germanic tribes and the Persians, expanding the Empire. He has found that while the current armour, lorica segmentata, has served the Empire well, these new battles have revealed some short-comings and so the Emperor has called for new armour designs for the new legionaries.
1. Design armour for use by the Roman legionaries.
2. You aren't limited to just body armour, feel free to design the whole kit (shield, helmet, javelins, short sword, dagger, etc.).
Deadline: Friday 6th October (it'll probably be closed on Saturday, if you need a bit more time, let me know)
