The empire is based on Roman empire , so what you think about shields being more similar to the real ones ?
Yes i know and im think more about the rectangular shieldRoman Empire, that's more then 1000 years of history. They used many different shields. Which one do you mean?
When you think about the roman army one of the first things that came to your mind is a legionar whit the rectangular shield or am I wrong?yes you are right, what I mean by the real ones is more like the topical image of a roman leginar
yes you are right, what I mean by the real ones is more like the topical image of a roman leginarYou're likely thinking of the classic Roman scutum, but that's more an affectation of the late Republican and early Imperial legions.
The Calradic Empire at this point in the timeline draws more heavily from Byzantine Rome, which was Rome as it existed a good 800 years after the scutum's heyday, who more likely used kite shields or even round shields. I think they're pretty good for accuracy here.

Yes it's TRUE, but being honest I would love to go against a testudo with one of my shield wallsWell, true. But technically speaking, they were still called legionaries, so it's historically accurate to have them look like this. While I get what you're saying, I personally would feel kind of weirded out if you had 1st century Roman legionaries fighting on the same battlefield with 10th century Norman knights. It'd just look kind of jarring.
