Early Imperial Roman Bolt-Shooter


1 In Stock

4 x Early Imperial Roman Bolt-shooters.

Every Roman Centuria within a Legion was equipped with a Light Bolt shooter (either Scorpion or Manuballista) These were manned by regular Legionaries and used in the field or defensively from forts or during sieges. They were capable of hurling a large dart or bolt at much longer ranges than the typical bow and added some devastating long range; heavy hitting firepower to any Roman Legion.

There is a useful image on Trajan’s column depicting this Bolt-shooter with cylindrical drums laying siege to a Dacian hillfort.

You get a lot of bits to really customise each figure and make your bolt-shooter bases look ready for business.

What you get

4 x Bolt shooters and the option of extended slider and drawn back slider ready to shoot.
4 x barrels and lots of loose bolts to fill the barrels.
8 x defensive stakes
16 x crew figures in various poses. Ratcheting back the hand cranks; loading the bolts; standing guard. We even have arms with picks; axes and buckets so you can use them as Romans building and entrenching.
44 x Heads including Option head with Feathers and some bare heads.

If you want to convert this into a Late Roman bolt-shooter you could easily convert some of the Late Roman infantry figures from the armoured; unarmoured and archer sets.
