"Warriors of Imperial Rome" is Lou Ann Melville's presentation for Carnival 2012.
The Roxborough-based band held its band launch at the Y2K Bar on Wilson Road last week Friday.
Melville gave a snippet of her mas featuring male and female warriors in six sections to the Friday evening regulars at the popular bar in heart of Scarborough.
Among the warriors to hit the small stage were: Mafia Warriors, the Vikings, the Gladiators, the Knights, Pirate Warriors and the Spartans.
Melville told Tobago News that her 300-strong band of masqueraders would be competing in the large band category for the Parade of the Bands on Carnival Tuesday.
