The Praetorians must be one of the most famous guard formations in military history and few wargamers can resist the urge to depict them as crack troops. Unfortunately the reality was somewhat different. While it is true that the Praetorians were lavishly equipped and paid, they quickly became more interested in politics and their own purses than in necessarily fighting well. Their morale was questioned on more than one occasion and some garrison-bound units could be a liability in battle. However, in their early days they were a magnificent sight and would make a splendid addition to any Early Imperial army. The Praetorian packs with the Command pack allow you to recreate their formations.

Our Praetorian Guard models were sculpted by Michael and Alan Perry. Appropriate command models can be found on the Imperial Roman command page as well as at the bottom of this one. Check out the main Imperial Romans page for an article on the Early Imperial Roman army by Adrian Garbett.

Our Praetorian Guard are supplied either in packs of 8 identical models for building impressive regimented units, or in the pack of assorted models that is listed at the top of this page.
