To this end I have chosen a solid line of Legionaries, no fancy Praetorians as I decided the morale of the normal line infantry will be fine with the odd officer around, as will the so-called raw legionaries, backing them up I have five units with which I normally have no idea about, especially the light cavalry skirmishers. These units I hope will overwhelm and kill the enemy skirmishers or die on my flanks while the heavies win the battle.
Early Imperial Romans for May:
Legate + 1 extra SIP
Tribune + 1 extra SIP
3 x 24 Regular Legionaries
2 x 24 Raw Legionaries
12 x Aux Light Cav.
12 x Horse Archers
12 x Aux Slings
18 x Aux light Infantry with light armour and javelin
12 Aux archers with light armour
A lot more support troops than I like, however I have to take at least 25% of the army costs as such. I managed to come in 12 out of 14 last time, which believe me having only played two games previously I was pretty happy about, I still haven't played a huge number of W&C games but I hope to better that score if only for my personal honour.
I have finished another map project, I don't know the name of the book but it is about tank warfare during WWI and shortly after.
Next up is three small maps for a tome analysing British air superiority in the Far East during WWII.
