Historical DescriptionEdit

Julius Caesar's famed 9th Spanish Legion ('Legio IX Hispania') fought with Caesar throughout Europe and Africa. After Caesar's death, Octavian led them against the rebel Sextus Pompeius and then against Mark Antony. This elite unit was eventually stationed in Britain, fighting against the uprising of the Celtic warrior queen Boudica. Eventually, the legion simply vanished from the records, possibly annihilated during an incursion into Scotland.Their disappearance remains one of military history's greatest mysteries.

VisualsEdit

The Caesar's Legion is wearing a gold rimmed set of Lorica Segmentata, or Roman segmented plate armor. He also carries a Scutum (shield) and a spear, either a Pilum (Javelin) or a Hasta (Spear).

Attacking StrategiesEdit

  • If these units are used in large groups and not in heavy fire; then they can be devastating and can destroy a base easily.
  • Catapults or Mortars, with their splash damage, are devastating against these units and can kill a group of them in a few hits if in the range of the impact. Spread the units around so that the mortar would have to hit each infantry to kill it and that its impact would not affect other infantry as well or deploy a few Heavy Cavalry to destroy it.
  • Redoubts or Machine Guns (Building) can likewise be devastating against these units, if it is not dealt with appropriately. Keep the units away from it until it is destroyed or position them to destroy it quickly.
  • Missile Silo can elemininate a group of these units quickly. Don't group them together so much that will attract the Silo attacks. Or deploy them after the Silo is destroyed, sabotaged or distracted by other units with high HP.
  • They can be used as a distraction for many defenses and can help protect ranged infantry such as riflemen from heavy fire from defenses.
  • A group of them can easily overwhelm single target defensive towers but are vulnerable against Machine Gun (Building).


Trivia Edit

  • The historical Legio IX Hispana disappeared from all records in AD 120, 356 years prior to the beginning of the middle ages in AD 476.
