II / 49 Marian Roman

A)  Julius Caesar's version

C1- Brilliant CiC RCvO, 4ICvO, 4IPsS, 8RBdO, 2 ILhO - 24ME

C2- SG RCvO, 8 RBdS, 4 RPsO - 26ME

C3- SG RCvO, 8 RBdO, 4 IPsO, 6 IAxS - 24ME

C4- 6 RBgF - 12ME

The brilliant general must be used to double pips and exchange command dice. The X Legio is the shock corps that must be flanked and supported by the others.

The army is not big but has many tools


B) Minimal blade and maxed support version

C1- CiC RCvO, 8ICvO, 8 IPsS, 1 IElI, 6 ILhO - 27ME

C2- SG RCvO, 8 RBdO, 6 IAxS, 4 IPsO - 24ME

C3- SG RCvO, 8 RBdO, 6 RAxS, 4 RPsO - 24ME

C4- 6RBgF - 12ME

This is not my preferred version, for I like to play with more Bd. It has the advantage of using all the auxiliary troops, so it is a sort of jack of all trades, it can cope with any tactical problem.


C) Sulla's version

C1- CiC RCvO, 8 RBdS, 6 IAxS - 30ME

C2- SG RCvO, 8 RBdS, 4 RPsO, 2 ILhO - 30ME

C3- SG RCvO, 8 RBdS, 4 IPsO, 2 ILhO, 2 IPsS, 1 IElI - 30ME

C4 6 RBgF - 12ME

This army has just superior legionaries. All other troops are mere support. It must win or lose with the legions, that are extremely strong. It has a small frontage, so must deploy on a wing and attack with elan there.
