X-FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN CASTING YOUR VOTE

Discipline- It isn't an army until there is discipline of some level.

Brutality- Which warrior is more ruthless in combat?

Equipment- Good equipment doesn't make a bad fighter a good one, but bad equipment is a burden to anyone.

NOTES

The LOTR movies may give the impression the Gondorian troops are utterly worthless, so I recommend reading THIS.

Each side has 5 troops.

While the longbow has superior range, every Roman legionary carried at least one pilum, often two.
