Late Roman list for comments

Postby ka2lu » Mon Jan 02, 2017 2:15 pm

I need some help…
I am working on a Late Imperial Roman army from the rulebook which consists of:
6 bases of Legionaries (back 3 bases with bows)
6 bases of Legionaries (back 3 bases with bows)
6 bases of Limitanei
6 bases of Limitanei
4 bases of Archers in skirmish formation
6 bases of Catafractii (barding, kontos, massed cav)
5 bases of Equites
5 bases of Equites
6 bases foederatii heavy cavalry (heavy armour, javelin)
1 general
5 legates (3 mounted)
Total points 959
What to do with 41 points??
This army is a combination of my Late Roman and Romano British armies and is based on what I have painted. What theme does everyone think it would fall under? I haven’t played Swordpoint yet and plan on getting in a tutorial game at First Blood on the 22nd.
Any and all comments are welcome.

I would consider replacing one of the Limitani units with Auxillia so that you can take advantage of rough ground. Perhaps add more skirmishers.

See you at First blood.

Hi ka2lu (!)

Just embarking on my own Late Roman army and intending to use Gripping Beast plastics wherever possible. My army will have a much greater proportion of Foederati and be commanded by some backwater warlord making a grab for power as the Empire disintegrates!

I was interested to know why you chose the 50% archer option for your legions rather than 25%... has this worked out to be a good choice in practice? I can't decide between the two! Does it make any difference?
