Wagon Fight by wraithdt Wagon Fight by wraithdt
This is my first Ancient Warfare Magazine illustration.

This scene is attached to an article about Trajan's campaign against the Dacian's and depicts a group of Roman soldiers attacking a wagon convoy made up of woman and children and protected by a handful of Bastarnae warriors wielding the fearsome falx. As protection against these weapons Roman legionaries wear additional right arm armor called a 'manica' and reinforced helmets, which became a signature look for Trajan's legions in Dacia. The Roman auxiliaries, as depicted on the side, were more lightly armored.

More info about the Dacian Wars >> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trajan%2…
Info about Bastarnae >> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bastarna…

For those interested you can check out the magazine here. >> www.karwansaraypublishers.com/…

Love me some Dacians... 

Rome- seriously overrated- good yes but far from infallible.
