Later Republican Romans for the 3rd Servile War, Slave Revolt, Later Hellenistic Greek, Mercenary Greek Hoplite (Classical section), East Francia (Dark Age), plus a Triple Alliance aztec update and new Post-Toltec Cities (American) all added to the Clash of Empires army list section of the website:
Thanks for the contributions and hard work from the list writers. I know that each one has been thoroughly thought out and a lot of original research has been done. Great efforts all round!

Just to complete the obscure, we'll be adding more American lists later in the month.

I submitted an army list for Marian/Caesarean Romans that Stuart is (I assume) in the process of editing but gave it very good initial reviews and some amount of praise, I'm pleased to say. The allies were the tricky bit, and I compiled allies from different areas and regions by their region. When I was about done with the list I did stumble on Mr. Jonas' WAB list of the same period, and I was pleased to say that the lists were pretty close (I must say that I used most of CoE's list entries, so most of it wasn't my original work).
If Stuart does indeed use the list, as I think likely, then it will work this way: the core of your army is, of course, Roman soldiers of varying experience (raw recruits to veteran and everything between). Then the player can choose a primary and secondary region from which his general can draw auxiliaries for different units. The goal was that Roman armies would look different based on which region their commander had been campaigning in, and, if a civil war between two Roman armies is fought, then the two armies won't look exactly identical, with everyone cherry-picking the best troops from each region.
If you – or anyone else – is interested in the list then send me a shout to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you the draft. It's not "official" yet, but I think that Stuart would not mind until he gets a chance to post up any changes. In the meantime people can get playing.
