The Asterix Project

The legionaries in the first books (Asterix the Gaul, Asterix and The Golden Sickle, Asterix and the Goths, Asterix The Gladiator and Asterix and The Banquet) bare a great difference to the legionaries in the later book. The colour of the armor, toga, shields switches form red, green (dark), yellow and even purple and violet. After the sixth album Asterix and Cleopatra they all wear green toga's metal colored armor and blue shield. Here is how their cloths change during the course of time.
