AboutThe Roman Legionary is a brand new unit featuring brilliant, brand new models, exquisite textures hailed for their detail, impressive animations based on historical accounts, and statistics that mimic those of traditional Roman soldiers. The Legionary will be built at Academies for 60 food, 10 wood for the shield and 20 gold for the armor, based on their historical monthly pay*, and when in box formation, they will form the famous "testudo" formation, or the "turtle" formation.

The project idea was originally conceived by team leader and texture artist The Purple People Eater. Within a few days of the idea, the main body and shield textures were created, which are the only aspects of the mod that remained unchanged throughout progress.

Progress slowed for a while as AoM events rattled design teams across the board and halted progress on near every PDS project. Modeler and animator Sir Dundo, a volunteer for LTA at the time, joined PDS to aid the Legionary's progress. He took the liberty of reviving the project's progress in February of 2007 with his legionary model. He soon added Player Compatible textures and completed all the animations.

Its true, this project has been in production for a full year** (est. August 24, 2006), but our work has paid off to bring you the most gorgeous mod that Age of Mythology has ever seen, and definitely the bet legionnaire unit yet to be modded for the game.

Features

  • Brand new historically accurate right down to the weaponry models and animations
  • Detailed, high-resolution textures
  • Unique historically accurate attack animations
  • Relatively low-polygon model for an enourmous amount of simultaneous units

A Note to Our Downloaders...

I'd like to thank you on behalf of the studios for downloading this mod, because really its you, the fan and downloaders, who keep us designers going. We had a lot of fun producing this mod for you, and if no one else had fun making it, I am positive I did. This mod was based on extensive research into the depths of the internet to make sure that every detail of this project was historically accurate. The helmet was admittedly slightly modified to our liking, but aside from that, this mod is 100% copied!

Sorry for any wait. It seems as though I've left the ReadMe files out of the ModDB release. The release link below will include the readme if you want them locally.

If the download doesn't work, download from here: Aom.heavengames.com
If you can't find the readme files, they're online here: Purpledesignstudios.com
