First Post for me ever! So if this thread is found in the wrong section I apologize.
I was curious what players of AoC and CMW would say about a Roman Expansion for the game. At first, the idea seemed awesome to me, but looking at the period, I am not sure if there would be much enthusiasm for it.
I can see the classes happening for the Romans as Ranged Auxilia, Melee Auxilia, Gladiator, and Legionary. The weapon choice leaves me wondering however, due to the Romans rather bland battlefield selection. Where Gladiator might be the only way to have true weapon diversity.
In addition, the opposing team would have to be a specific alternative to the Romans. I was thinking Greece, Carthage, Barbarian (Gaul or German). Carthage would probably be the ideal candidate since, they fought not only in Africa but brought the fight all the way to Italy.
So what do you guys think, I am very interested in your opinions. Cheers!
