I have maybe 25% of the map (excluding Briton) under my control as Red Rome. I'm using native troops as garrisons for conquered cities and occasional building but other than that I am using exclusively Legions for my army.
Has anyone done this successfully? When you get so far away from your home cities, does refilling losses to squads take forever that it is impractical?
So far I've only take heavy losses in a few sieges but never depleted recruit reserves. I have probably 50 legions scattered across my front.
EDIT: Declared war on the pink Romans. Now I can recruit moar Legions!
