It has to be that Centurion, that is IMHO a really dynamic looking Sculpture.

POLL DESCRIPTION

One of our upcoming painting contests will feature the 54mm historical figures from Alpha Miniatures. One of the rounds will be devoted to the Romans. Which of the following figures would you like to see in the contest?

(You can vote for up to five favorites, although only the figure with the most votes will be used.)

Tribune

A Tribune was a Roman officer. There were 5 junior and 1 senior Tribunes serving with each Legion. These served just under the Legate who was the "General" of the Legion. The Tribunes usually came from a non-military background and their posting as Tribune was training for them to one day become a Legate.

Tribune
Imagnifer

An Imagnifer was a standard bearer who carried an image of the Emperor or a member of his family. This was mean to remind the Legionaries of their devotion to the Emperor. Our Imagnifer wears a bear pelt, and carries a small round shield, both of these were normal for standard bearers.

Imagnifer
Signifer

Each Century and Cohort unit would have a "Signifer" to carry its Signum. These standard bearers wore mail armor instead of segmentata and generally are depicted wearing the heads and hides of bears over their helmets and armor. The honor of carrying these "Standards" was given to veteran legionaries who generally were serving their extended enlistments after 20 years of service.
