Palestinian Clubmen

 








Here's a post from the archives, a unit of Palestinian clubmen from the A&A Middle Imperial Roman range. Sad to say this is still the only completed unit from my Middle Imperial Roman army thus far, though I have most of it based and some of it prepped for painting.

  1. Great looking clubmen! They look a bit odd to be so heavily armoured but only armed with a club! Nice figures though!

    1. Thanks Iain, Aurelian used them against Palmyran cataphracts at the Batte of Emesa in 272. A&A have some great ranges.

  4. Very cool looking warriors. The banded clubs and chain mail armor gives them a unique look.

  6. I've not read about these units before so this is a learning experience for me. They look superb and beautifully painted. I can imagine they would be a hard opponent on the battlefield, smashing their way through shields and armour rather like the Flemish Goedendag club/mace. They would take some stopping, I'm sure!
    Best wishes,
    Jason
