The Principes Reformati are well-armoured and well-disciplined, serving as reformed medium swordsmen for the Romans. They have a helmet, shield, one greave and a chain mail coat to protect them at close quarters. However they are relatively expensive and take a while to train.


The Principes were family men in their prime, and they formed the second line of infantry. They would engage the enemy after the Hastati retreated, and if they were also unable to break the enemy, they would withdraw behind the Triarii.
