Legion VIII

My first full legion ready for action, Legion VIII:

One of the oldest units in Roman service, Legion VIII was founded by Pompay in 65 B.C. but became one of Caesar's most trusted legions after it had been transferred to Cisalpine Gaul in 58 B.C. Under Augustus Caesar this unit gained the title Augusta.
