What does it cost to participate as Roman Soldier with Legio IX Hispana?

The hobby can be expensive, but only if you truly want it to be. Because we buy wholesale, because we have access to skilled craftsmen, who can help you make your own kit and, because we buy raw materials in large quantities -- because of this we've been able to reduce the cost of producing our own gear. If you aren't rich, then maybe this is the way to go -- most members use a combination of methods in building their kit -- buying some items and making others. Everyone has a skill in some area.

Through Member Resources:

Costs of materials or as a kit:

  • Calceus or caligae (Roman hobnailed boots) $40 - $50
  • Tunica (tunic) $25
  • Cinglium (soldier's belt) with baltea and bulla -- $40 on up. A plain soldier's belt can be made for less than $50.
  • Lorica Segmentata, Corbridge variants (body armor) $200 on up
  • Pilum (spear) $40.

Costs to make or buy:

  • Scutum (shield) $200 (can be made at unit fabrica for substantially less)
  • Galea (helmet) without strapping and liner $70. - on up
  • Gladius (sword) with scabbard and balteus $95. - on up
