New unit: the famous Roman unit Legionary ("Legionarius" in Latin)
This mod added two versions of the unit: a standard version (Legionarius) with a close attack, and a special version (Legionarius (pilum)) with both ranged and close attack.
This Legionary is modelled on the base of the typical imperial legionary, equipped with the short sword "gladius", the javelin "pilum", the big rectangular shield "scutum" and the heavy cuirass "lorica segmentata".

This mod use new models and high-quality textures!
Flawless, the texture is more detailed then any I've ever seen. You spent a long time on this didn't you?
The Legionarius really stand out amongst all the other units in the game - because of the detail put into their texture.
You've made them as weak as any standard infantry unit in the game, but stronger so that they reach 194 hp with all the Infantry upgrades. The pilum throwing units are very versatile, serving as both ranged and melee counter calvary units, quite powerful. They aren't overpowered or underpowered, so that is good.
I love how the Pilum Legionarius' can use both ranged and melee attacks, I'll have to look into that unique ability for my mods... very inspiring. The addition of the new models for the Gladius and pilum add to the realism of the unit.
Awesome! Keep it up!

Great MOD! The Leigonary looks better in red than it does in blue I noticed. I am thinking of using this in a Roman civilization that i am trying to put together (if thats ok with you)
I sugest you make an archer unit to go with this and the cavalry unit.

I give it a 4.5
the textures are very nice, and really detailed.
besides they are a lot well balanced, thank you for having made this mod. This mod is really useful to me, in my game.
I hope you continue to make Roman units similar to this, for example: cavalry units

Brilliant mod I had no queries with it. I find this awesome!
BTW, I got a huge battle of legionaries with the pilum and they didn't attack with range at all and I installed again and they still didn't.
apart from that little do-dad, great mod!
