    ARMY: Force of SOLDIERs. Roman rule = 100,000 men.
    ROMAN SOLDIER: i wanna fight and then go home and prosper ala ROMAN stylee
    Leader: Experienced soldier - Corporal to Colour ranks. Weary and battle hardened.
    Officer: Highly trained in commanding Battalions etc. Tactics etc - I want my men home alive and i get rewarded with having the prettiest wife/cake/pot of gold coins.,,etc.
