Reading from the 2nd edition rulebook, points 2 and 3 of the (8.17) refers only to Heavy Infantry/Phalanx units,....what about Legion units? Are they to be treated like Heavy infantry for missile volleys resolutions(+1 dieroll)? I think Legion units are similar to heavy infantry units....

Legion units (LG) are in a class of their own for Shock and Missile Combat purposes.

If i recall correctly, the game designers had a note in the rules which described LG units being akin to Medium Infantry (MI) defensively, but which were armed with much more effective weapons.

Hope this helps!

Yes, LG units are a class on their own for lot of things but..


in "The missile range and results chart" notes, it is mentioned that legion units get the +1 dieroll like heavy infantry and phalanx. But this is not mentioned in the rulebook. Still have some doubts, anyway thank you for the reply!
