What You Think

Peter Anderson (
I admire Legion, and used it as a basis for a set of my own (house) Ancient rules, with which I fought many enjoyable actions between a variety of armies.

One of the nice things about Legion was the ability to represent the entirety of an Ancient battle, and with a very modest number of castings.

Also, the rules don't give you a headache trying to read them! A quite different, well-done set. Still well worth playing.
