Marius Romans

Postby Dominatus » Tue Dec 31, 2013 12:19 am

Hi, I can't seem to find a specific Caesar (invasion of Gaul / Crassus vs Parthia etc.) period Roman Army list. As I don't yet own the main rule book I looked in the rule book preview pdf and at the Army lists on the site but couldn’t find one. Surely I'm going blind from painting to many miniatures.
Thanks in advance.

You know what, I think you're right. There seems to be a 50yr-odd gap between the Late Republican and Early Imperial Roman lists. I don't know anything about the specifics of the period, so there's no point in me recommending either list for any specific campaign, but until there's something written up for Caesar, I think you just have to pay your money and make your choice on that (I'd go EIR, since it's post-Marius reforms, but then it's also pre-Augustus).

Not entirely satisfactory, but there's always the option of writing your own list and submitting it to GEG. Fame and immortality could be yours!

We have a draft one at the moment that is due to go up quite soon. Any contributions/ideas before it does would be most welcome.

Any word on the Marian/Caesarean list? I know that things often take longer than expected, especially from a toolbox army list such as this.

An idea that I had for such a list [and I'm not an expert in the civil wars] was to have a core of legions (raw recruits, regulars, some veterans) and then to have the player pick a primary geographical region for support units with one or two selections from another secondary area to represent that they've campaigned there before too. General regions might be Spain, Africa, Gaul, Pontic areas (?), and "the East". Of course there are the ubiquitous mercenaries too that pop up almost everywhere (Cretans, Numidians, etc). But this might keep players from cherry picking the best of all regions (e.g., everyone with African elephants found mostly at Thapsus) and add a flavor to what might otherwise turn into an army list with "must haves" from all regions. And then if players want to simulate civil wars they have different army lists with various strengths and weaknesses.

Our Marian era army is going through the review process with just the allied sections to work out. It has a core of legionaries, with a little bit of cavalry, peltast and scorpio support. Allies can be quite tricky, naturally, given the expansion of the Republic at this time.

Ok- 11 month since the last reply re uploading the Marian Romans.

REALLY REALLY need a Marian Roman list soon.

How is it travelling? Any chance will be up soon?
