i'm curious whether or not using Roman military titles (Legions, Cohorts, Centurions) for the army would seem overdone.Pick some of the lesser unit types from here and you should be fine.
Paretorians have been used quite a bit, so steer clear of them.
That's gonna be useful as hell, thanks.
I might have to end up using Praetorians anyways at least in a minor part since they're the emperor's guards.

I think you could put a unique spin on the theme by researching the structure of the roman military and being faithful to it. The games you mentioned all just pay lip service by plugging in some roman names. I think if you go that extra mile you'll add a sense of authenticity that could make your work shine.
Yeah, that's my plan. I'd like to do my best to recreate the Roman empire in an alternate timeline and new setting, so accurate titling for military units is a bit of a must have.
