Unique to Romans, right? For the sake of historical accuracy.

How exactly us it going to work? Will you need a few legionaries to be close together to activate the formation?

You just need 9+ sword or spear infantry selected to activate the Testudo.

Awesome, do they break formation when one member is lost?

If the number of members falls below the minimum amount, the formation breaks. :)

Do the people split in combat or do they keep their formation when fighting? I always wished there would be a create a formation type where you would turn a bunch of men into a Total War Style formation which fights against others.. Dreams... but not actually needed. Would still be cool though.

Hopefully we'll be able to implement fighting in formation, for now they split up though.

I hope the Testudo is completely useless for anything other than marching towards a fortress wall with no genuine threat from enemy melee attackers if you're actually interested in historical accuracy.
