    How does the Lugiones infantry roster compare to the Sweboz? Also how does the Boii infantry roster compare to the other Gallic and Celtic factions?

    Also the Areuakoi and Lusotannan have some good infantry and good light cavalry. Dare I say, they have just as good javelin infantry as the Romans.
