Pretty solid, if you really want the archers keep them in, I personally don't like them. But i would substitute concan for ne gok sa. With concan you have a good figure, but he doesn't help anybody in your army and you lose out on 10 pts in the end. With ne gok sa you don't lose any excess points and he hes a great figure that bonds with your romans. Hope that helps. Good luck

ASmiles Woo who?
Why is concan in that army? He offers no help or synergy with any of the other figures.

I know the Roman Archers have their fans, but I'm not one of them. If you really want to use the archers, you should swap Raelin in for Concan, as she can boost their pitiful defense.

For the same 110 points, you can take the Airborne Elite, who are a better range unit and benefit from Marcus's power (as they are soldiers).

You might also want to consider replacing concan with Ne-Gok-Sa, as he is also a Warlord (can bond with the legionaires) and give you some flexibility when Marcus is dead or not in a useful position. Other warlords to consider (based on points remaing) are Me-Burq-Sa, Parmenio, Venoc Warlord, and Valguard.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons; for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

yea i was thinking about negoksa. I knew he would survive longer than concan but didn't think he would do as much damage. As for the archers i haven't tried them yet as i am still waiting for delivery I might replace them if they don't do as well. I think if i keep 2 or 3 legos with they would be fairly protected.

I must concur with the honorable gamjuven and ASmiles in their assessments - an army of Marcus, Legos x2, NGS and AE would be nice. I will also offer this suggestion: If you have 2 squads of 4th Mass Line and Me-Burq-Sa, switch out the Roman Archers and Concan for them. The 4th Mass gives you 8 ranged soldiers to benefit from Marcus and pack quite a punch themselves, and Me-Burq-Sa is also a warlord that can bond with the romans, and has great move with range. The team would be:

Marcus - 100
Roman Legos x2 - 100
Me-Burq-Sa - 50
4th Mass x2 - 140

Total = 390

You still lose out on the 10 points, but I like the way the units work together

Yea I like that. Unfortunatly i don't have any 4th mass yet. I hope to be getting some soon. The airbourne elite sounds good also but for the battlefield I'm planning this army for I think I need 2 range squads to be effective. I could change the army though for different battlefields.
