In SPQR, I have noticed, the better organization you have, the better you will do. I want to see how others organise. This is mine.
Once I have enough money, I have two legions assigned to every general, and the general must have a command rating of 6 or above, and each army under the general, has a lower general in case they are attacked, this general usually is a general in training. Through this, I can create effective fronts, so while one army is fighting, the other is being replenished with fresh hastati, I use them like auxillia.
So I call two legions in the formation above, an army, which creates a front, sometimes multiple armies make up a front, depending on how big my enemy is.
Now, around two armies make up a division, and divisions are assigned to fronts and sides, such as I have taken over Gaul, two divisions are assigned to keep the peace on the eastern border with Germania, while one division is keeping Carthage at bay, or the Spanish rebels at bay.
Attacking has two phases, as I said, a division is made up of three armies, which is made up by around four legions, two high ranking generals and two lower, trainee's shall we say.
Now usually a division would make up an invasion, but for bigger areas, I use two. It would go like one division holds off all enemy reinforcements and kills all armies, while the other takes over towns and villages.
The job of the first division holds off for as long as they can, recruiting mercenaries as they loose more and more in number. They are made up of the better generals and older ones, who have betteer traits and retinue.
The job of the other division is to take settlements, and they are made up of the weaker generals, and through this, they gain better retinues and traits. Soon after they take finish off the faction, their job is to guard it while the other division gets and restores its units.
Since there are not too many acadamies at this time, so the governors have to have atleast three management points. The garrisons have six hastati and three archers, if they are not able to recruit them, some are sent to them.
The defence is made up a little different. There are still the same, legion, army, and division, just each are larger in number due to the larger amount of money, although the generals commanding armies have a higher standard now due to the buildings acadamies and so on.
The legions have the historic make up, 1 first cohort and 9 cohorts and so on, and two legions make up an army. Each general in command of an army must have atleast six command stars. On top of that, usually it takes time for that to happen at the acadamies, so they are usually 40+, but age does not matter, the younger the better right? Each legion carries an auxillia full stack to keep them in fighting condition.
So, an army is made up by two legions, and each legion is followed by a full stack of auxillia swordsman and spearmen, so a division usually has around two armies, which means 8 full stacks, which is kind of hard to maintain, so there are not as many.
Attacking is more or less the same. There are still two divisions, but the division stopping enemy reinforcements has the auxillia to worry about as well, and due to the increase of money, each auxillia stack is stationed in a fort. They are then sent to armies in need from there.
As for the armies that take the cities, the legions take settlements like usual, but the auxillia's job is to keep cities under seige, so that some may surrender and some by the time the legions come to that town, they will surely surrender.
Auxillia have another job, the other job is to keep the peace with the civilians, they are stationed in new towns as they move along, until a new garrison can be created for that town.
Towns are run by capable governors who have 3+ managment stars, the rest are run by me. They each also have a garrison of six urban cohorts and three archers, and if they can not supply them themselves, the troops are sent to them.
I have shared my campaign organization, now it's your turn . Hope it wasn't too long, it took a lot out of me to type it:sweatingb. Just kidding, but hope it isn't too long.
Peace out all,
