Want to join the legion? Roman reenactment is an investment of time and money, and we understand that. Legio VI has several levels of membership, ranging from recruits to veteran reenactors, and have written a guide to help you get into the hobby.
If this is your first time reenacting, this is a great place to start. If you're a hobbyist and joining another group, this is where you can get acquainted with our guidelines.
Roman reenactment gear is a niche market, and there are many products that can lead you astray. Many a reenactor has fallen victim to purchasing something outside of the timeframe they are trying to represent.
This guide will help you find the best gear on the market, and give you pointers on to what and how you can make items yourself. If you're in doubt, ask the Centurio before you buy!
"Sin! Sin! Sin Dex Sin!" Although the Romans didn't count cadence, they did practise drill, which is something we recreate here in Legio VI. Roman drill was in part reconstructed by our legion with the help of groups around the US and Europe.
This manual covers the basic commands and includes download links for PDF's and MP3 discussions of Roman drill and formantion-to-contact maneuvers.
