Based on authentic classical paintings portraying the Roman era,

Salve Friends, Romans, Citizens,

True Legions project as submod for (Divide et Impera mod), Romans at the very center of work covers not only the Romans. Including nearly all units of Italian peninsula and some tiers of Carthaginian and Epirote (AOR) units.

To complete such a colossal task we introduce over +300 unique shield patterns and new Scutum, Helmet, Armour models for Romans, Italics and Carthaginians (bonus content).

Our main goal is covering, enriching the looks of all Italian Peninsula units from Romans to Samnites to Etruscans give unique look and offer greater variety. And you'll notice the changes when you're campaigning in Italian Peninsula with or without Playing the Romans.

I hope you like the work and thanks for your support fellow Romans and citizens,

For the modders, (post version 2.0)

Apart from the former versions we used extensively and exclusively created new models and textures (ours and external and permission granted) and many assets.

Without permission even if we've granted it before for some certain elements of the mod PLEASE ASK AGAIN specifically what and which part of the mod before putting (if we allow) them to your work.

Thank you!

Dear friends,

Mod is obsolete now. Please remove all files and wait for DEI updates for further implementations. Theyre working hard on it and soon Steam version of DEI will also include the whole True legions assets.

Thank you!

Dear friends,

True Legions for True Romans is now officially integrated into the Divide Et Impera major overhaul.

For two years me and our small team worked hard to deliver this mod. I hope you enjoyed the mod and spent good with time with it. This our journey' end fellow friends.

I thank you first to my friends and companions who worked side by side with me,

Solitudo, Celticus, HighonTea, Vandamsel, Stealth4Health,

I couldn't do it all alone.

And thank you all dear friends and fans.

Please unsub the mod and delete it from your data folder

all that is gold does not glitter,
not all those who wander are lost;
the old that is strong does not wither,
deep roots are not reached by the frost.

i dont understand if this mod was intergrated with new DEI then why do my imperial Legionary Cohorts still look like trash?

Dear friends,

I've stopped working on this mod due couple reasons which are personal. Me and DEI team agreed on that the True Legions mod will the official part of DEI so no worries. After that i'll remove it from Steam.

Thank you,
