hi all, i am building a Principate Roman army from the 'Legions Triumphant' army book, for which i have the standard 'field commander' as my C in C, and 2 'troop commanders' as sub-commanders. the book book states that commanders should be depicted as auxiliary cavalry, however i was wondering if it would be permissable to have my C in C as auxiliary cavalry, but my sub commanders as foot command?
As Phil says - pretty much anything goes as the Commander is effectively a marker. Some players even use a 25mm figure so their Generals stand out from the 15mm crowd! Elephant mounted generals are a notable exception because of their special role in the game.
