The Hastati Reformati are the lightest and cheapest of Rome's reformed heavy infantry. They are armed with javelins and protected by a shield, helmet, one greave and a bronze pectoral plate. These soldiers can stand their ground against enemies, but not for long enough to defeat a heavier force.
Historically the Hastati were the youngest and poorest of the legionary heavy infantry. Forming the first line, they would wear down the enemy, and if they couldn't defeat them, they would withdraw behind the second line.
