Everyone who has played this game knows that combat can be tedious and long. My son and I came up with an Axis-and-Allies style system that sped things up pretty well, and is similar to the new version. We roll six sided dice equal to the number of units in the attacking legion. Depending on what is rolled the defender then declares units as casualties, then counterattacks in the same manner, then all casualties are removed. Combat advantages are figured in as extra dice.

This seems to speed up combat quite a bit in the games we played without detracting too much from the flavor of the game.
