Echoes of Glory
75th Heavy Legion
Occasionally a legion will forgo the traditional “pikemen defending bowmen” style of other legions, and instead equip its entire complement of men with shields and heavy armor. These units are typically used as a living wall to block an enemy’s advance, tying him up long enough for horsemen to ride through his flanks and disrupt his formation.
The 75th was one such legion. Serving with distinction in numerous battles against Qadira over the centuries, the 75th was stationed in Stavian’s Hold briefly, until they were moved out to the Tandak Plains. Over time, House Disaren was able to secure the legion’s loyalty, until the unit suffered the worst defeat of its storied history before the walls of the city, defeated by the unstoppable 109th.
