Imperial Legions Organization
legions.jpg
  • At full strength, an imperial legion consists of 5000 front-line infantry soldiers.
    • Each Legion is divided into 10 Dragons of 500 men each. In a traditional Legion, there are 4 dragons of Heavy Infantry and 6 Dragons of Medium Infantry.
      • Each Dragon is divided into two Wings (250 men each).
      • Each Wing is divided into two Talons (125 men each).
      • Each Talon is divided into five Scales (25 men each).
      • Each Scale is divided into five Fangs (5 men each).
    • A full-strength Legion has 300 officers: its general, 10 dragonlords, 20 winglords, 40 talon-captains (called talonlords when they are Dragon-Blooded), 200 scale-lieutenants (called scalelords when they are Dragon-Blooded), 1000 fang-lieutenants (called fanglords when they are Dragon-Blooded). It also includes a handful of other officers, such as the Quartermaster, the Chief Engineer and its Chief Sorcerer.
      • Each officer of winglord rank or higher also has a subaltern.
  • A traditional Legion also incorporates a Legion's Support, made up of 2500 troops:
    • Quartermaster's Wing: A baggage and supply train, tended by slaves and guarded by a wing of medium infantry under command of the Quartermaster.
    • Skirmishers: four Talons of lightly armored skirmishers. Two of these are usually Imperial light infantry. The others are usually drawn from local military forces, pressed into Imperial service.
    • Archers: two Talons of archers. These are Imperial citizens trained in the use of the bow.
    • Slingers: four Talons of slingers. This is a term for "local missile troops," and may range from actual slingers to spearmen to those who use more specialized ranged weaponry.
    • Light Cavalry: three Talons of light cavalry. These are always coopted from local military.
    • Heavy Cavalry: one Talon of heavy cavalry. These are always coopted from local military.
    • Camp Guard: two Talons of camp guard. These are always Imperial light infantry.
    • Engineers: two Talons of engineering crew. These are always Imperial engineers.
    • Sorcerer's Guard: a Talon of soldiers to defend the Legion's sorcerers and thaumaturges. These are usually a mix of medium infantry (2 Scales worth), light skirmishers (2 Scales worth) and Imperial archers (1 Scale worth)
  • Some Legions include specialized troops, as well.
    • Warstrider Fangs: Groups of five warstriders, usually with a Scale of dedicated engineers to tend to them.
  • Legions are usually divided into flights, groupings of Dragons, each under the command of the senior-most Dragonlord in the flight.
    • Forward Flight: 3 Dragons of heavy infantry, 2 Dragons of medium infantry, X
    • Reserve Flight: 3 Dragons of heavy infantry, 2 Dragons of medium infantry, X
    • Harrier Flight: 2 Dragons of skirmishers & artillerists, under the command of the General himself.
