The set contains 36 legionaries which can be Hastati or Princeps armed with pilum, or you can make some Triari by arming them with the long spear. There are 3 Centurions, 3 standard bearers and options to make 3 musicians. Also included are 18 light infantry which can be made as Velites after 211BCE or theearlier skirmisher Leves lightly armed with javelins but no shield or helmet.
