Empire Legionnaire

Empire Legionnaire

These soldiers are the signature troops of the Empire. They define everything the Empire is, disciplined and steadfast. They pack themselves with their signature broadswords and some pack broadhead javelins. They are versatile and even in the worst of situations, their discipline and skill will often grant them victory where others would have fallen. However, don't mistake versatility as powerful. What the Legionnaires lack is staying power. They do not have the stamina of the Fierdsvain Huscarls nor the agility of the D'Shar Blademasters. However, they do have a bit of both speed and stamina, and packed with their javelins, they can dish out damage from a short distance and still deal out a significant amount of damage with their broadswords.

While it sounds like fun to field an all-legionnaire army, it is unwise to even contemplate doing it. These soldiers are jack-of-all-trade like Empire Heavy Infantry they are upgraded from. They may win battles, but usually at a high cost if not given support from other specialized units like the Empire Gladiators and Empire Pikemen. They however, make an excellent skirmisher/infantry force. When holding a shieldwall, their javelins complement the bolts from their crossbowmen in taking down cavalry and infantry alike. The Legionnaires also do well in dealing with archers as they come equipped with a shield.

Hence, while you can have these troops as the main bulk of your infantry force, do not neglect in supplementing them with pikemen and gladiators and you will have a killing machine in both field and siege battles.
