The Deadlands Chronicle
In Imperial military organization, a Legion consists of 10 Cohorts, totaling 5,000 troops. Each legion is raised from citizens within a specific Imperial Province, and commanded by a Legatus personally appointed by the Imperator. The Empire currently fields 6 legions; one from each province (except Nolanda, which has yet to raise a legion due to political unrest) and the Praetorian Guard, an elite unit under the direct command of the Imperator which includes the best soldiers from throughout the entire empire. In addition to its Legionnaires, a legion is usually also reinforced by a Legionary Cavalry unit of 120 Equites, a Legionary Artillery Crew of 60 Immunes with catapults or siege weapons, and any number of conscripted Milites. The Legions of the Empire are renowned throughout the world as the most powerful military force in existence.
