Question

Guest

Five legions from another time

Little soldiers 1 inch tall

Although we may seem harmless

By us many will fall.

What are we?

is it an insect of some sort? say the 1 inch height is relative and not exact, it could be the fleas that inserted the Bubonic Plague into Europe?

:D

im not sure about the five legions from another time, but

a curb jutting out of the sidewalk an inch will make a lot of people trip and fall even though it seems harmless.

little plastic green army men! I know I've stepped on a few in my day. Haven't fallen down completely, but close.

I agree with the last few posts. It sounds like gaming minaturs (warhammer) or small toy soldiers.

Although bullet is a good shout but it doesn't fit with the first line.

The five books of the Old Testament

I think you mean

Pentateuch

It completely fits (in my opinion), but I will be surprised if it was what he was thinking. Great answer none the less.

Old Testament/Hebrew Bible/Pentateuch are interchangeable i think... I figured people might not know what the Pentateuch was though

Army Ants have been divided into five subfamilies. Their non-nesting group behavior is referred to as 'legionary behavior'.

My first guess (before I saw what was already posted) was bullets -- like WWI machine guns.....but then I was thinking fingers, aka phalanges, the plural of phalanx, which is equivalent to a legion. Fingers are very deadly when applied properly.

All of the above are incorrect.

Most of them are disqualified by the "another time bit"

The books in the old testament are bigger than an inch.

"Fingers are very deadly when applied properly." I find this statement both profound and insanely hillarious. I don't know if it the correct answer, but it's good enough for me.
