Roman Armour by portohle Roman Armour by portohle
Initially, I just wanted to do a study of roman armour. Then for some reason I had to get fancy with it. I tried to keep it realistic, though I'm sure any experts in roman armour would tear it apart. It was fun though.

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

Actually, while enlisted would wear the segmented armour, generals' armour was rather similar to this. So, you are pretty accurate.

Depends heavily on what century. The lorica segmentata (aka lorica laminata) was only prevalent during 1 AD and a bit into 2 AD. Most common armours were hamatae (lorica hamata).
The officers although mostly depicted wearing the musculata (muscle armour) wore into combat a hamata and likely a squamata (scale) or a plumata (mail armour with metal plumes).
