The Cohors Reformata is a superb professional heavy infantry unit available to the Romans. These reformed swordsmen have high quality equipment, including a chain mail coat, a scutum shield and a Montefortino or Coolus-type helmet. They take a long time to train, but their levels of discipline and endurance makes it worth the trouble.
The Marian reforms affected the Roman army in many ways. There ceased to be any form of property requirements, so men of all social classes could fight in the legion. The Marian legionaries were uniformly equipped and they had to carry as much of their equipment as possible (which is why they became known as "Marius' mules"). They became increasingly loyal to their generals, who had to take care of the veterans — one side effect of this however was to shift power from the civil government embodied by the Senate to the Roman military leadership, thus dooming the old republic and setting the scene for the rise of the Empire.
