You don't say what the first army you faced actually was. Some version of late Roman army. I think it was Dominant Roman. it seems you only fought one opponent with much in the way of shooters and no 'proper' knight army. Therefore you should probably Elephants are most vulnerable to being shot at ...

I had this silly idea that the LF could pin LH and that this would allow my medium foot come up wipe out his LH.

Here is the link to my battle reports from Natcon 2010, where I used this army. As you will see, I didn't go very well. This, however, had nothing to do with the composition of the army. It was, sadly, all due to how I used it.

With a drilled, well behaved army like Romans? Yes of course there will be. And you'll need it. "Line the legions up and walk towards the enemy" will work against some players for a while. But fairly soon opponents will delay in the centre and go for the flanks, or hit it on the nose with lancers, ...

Sadly what happens if i bring up my Lancer Superior Cavalry up to a mm away from your Cavalry in my turn now your pinned. In my next turn i charge being so close I have a good chance of catching you in the rear if you evade. This assumes, among other things, that: 1) I wouldn't make my elephants su...

A LRR army is all about legionaries. It looks to me like to chose a mixed-arms tournament army and added in some legionaries because you had to. Caesar would be so ashamed. I think you are being a bit melodramatic :wink: Historically Roman’s armies made extensive use of allies. Scipio had cavalry o...

Thank you for all the feed back, it is much appreciated. A quick response to some of the points raised. Elephants - I am taking the elephants because they help legionaries by disrupting knights, after several nasty experiences with knights, and I also use them to bolster a flank in conjunction with ...
