Charge The Guns

Hi Richard, Until the Epic release comes out we can’t be sure how they will model the manipular system.  In the original HC army lists they give Republican legions small units and some special rules around swapping in and out of melee.  We tried this and it was “fiddly”.  We went back to regular sized units jyst the special rules for swapping the lines.

Ultimately I think it comes down to whether you want to try and replicate each single maniple in a game with multiple legions.  The author of the Epic supplement has said in an interview I heard that he wanted to show the checkerboard formation.  I suspect we will see an abstraction of the manipular system.
