I have small question about roman units on last screen (look at their hands - it looks like claws.) Have they not completed?
Still can't get over how amazing those phalanx animations look...

As far as Ive read Marian reforms wont be in the first release at all. playing a campaign with nothing but early camilian units is pointless. thats why I was saying polybian units are the minimum (hastati, principe triarrii) otherwise the roman faction is not really worth playing...
Camillan hastati look amazing. I cant wait to use them. The manipular repuplican armies interest me far more than the legionary ones.
For those who feel they are not effective clearly dont know how to use them or are not bothering to give them a chance.
FM,6 hastati, 4 principes, 2 triarii, 3 accensi, 2 leves, 2 equites romani. Using the checkerboard formation really gets the feel of early roman armies and is effective. Beats any hellenic army and I cant wait to play this formation with these amazing looking hastati!

Barely waiting on Med2 ancient era mod DE BELLO MUNDI !!! Check it out!
I love it when people set higher standards for the team to delay a public release simply because they demand more units.
Camillan and Polybian units are superb, i loved them in EBI and in EBII they look fantastic ( as the whole mod, thank you team). Also the auxiliary use of regional units outside of italy is a great aspect of the game due to it´s historicity. But i agree with Darios about the difficulty of enacting the marian reforms, playing in a 4TPY campaign makes hard to get the Marian legions to fully enjoy them (depending on your game style of course) it would be nice to feel that change of the republic army from maniple to cohors during the game without having to wait that long. Obviously it will not be accuarate to have legions in 200 bc, but its my opinion. Anyway, this mod is epic, very good job EB team.
Sorry if this is a topic that has already been discussed a lot in the forum like the LS one, just found the discussion interesting.
P.S: sorry for any misspelling.
^ Don't be sorry about anything
Form my part, i want to express my gratitude, for another time, to the EB team. These Romans look great and, as i see them, they are sth different from the usual. And that is, for me, always a good thing.
Don't ever mistake me for being a homer for the Romans. I prefer playing with Baktra and the Saka Rauka, just throwing my opinion out there.

Tbh i founded my empire on the Camillan legions which went to Greece, Asia Mikra, Egypt and the upper Nile. Though i had decided to upgrade them since we were hard pressed in the East (ptolomies) and the West (well Cyrenaica, where the Carthies won't take a hint).
