    For the life of me, I do NOT know how my Legion can suddenly build roads and forts. I moved a worker on to a damaged (5 health) Legion. The Legion was to a marsh (the marsh-trading post):lol:. It suddenly can build roads. Maybe rails. It could also build a fort, but I don't have the tech. :p

    Yes they can! That is the roman UA. Neat isn't it? :D

    It's even an achievement. Build a road with a Legion as Rome. One of the easiest Civ-specific achievements.

    Oh, wow.

    I guess I didn't know Legions could build roads. XD

    Swordsmen are generally weak for warfare, so while they are Legions I tend to road up my empire while pushing for Longswords. Then wipe an enemy civ with them.

    The Legions can not only build roads, but they are more powerful than regular swordsmen. Thus, there is little reason to wait for Longswords. If I'm playing Rome I almost always use them for an early Classical Era offensive./ They are incredibly effective at taking enemy cities, especially when used in conjunction with siege units.

    The window where Legions can be used on Deity is very, very small. They're only really useful against peacemonger civs.

    Make sure you have a worker following your line of legions to remove the road to save on maintenance costs!
