Mod Summary:

Rome II HD: Legions of the Imperator is a continuation of the Rome II HD series of mods that aim to reskin the entire game for the modern gaming era. This mod covers the units featured in Imperator Augustus Campaign. The 2nd Triumvirate is collapsing and the rivalry for the seat of power in Rome rages. Witness the evolution from Republic to Empire with the twilight of the Republican soldiers and birth of the Imperial Legions of Rome. Featuring new equipment, weapons, and armor, seek glory for Rome or yourself with these newly designed units!

– Dozens of custom models and textures.

– Historical helmets, armor, equipment used with respect for history and artistic license.

– Roman Officer armor based on the Rome II Cover Art, Concept Art, and HBO Rome.

– Covers the units of the Rome faction in Imperator Augustus and The Battle of the Teutoburg Forest

– Octavian, Antony, Lepidus, and Sextus Pompey given unique shields and faction designs.

– Extensive edits to weighting and model composition to ensure assets fit in with the vanilla aesthetic and quality.

– Designed to work seamlessly along other reskins such as Benjin’s general mods.

– Total War: Attila HD skins to replace the Rome II italic style skins (WIP)


Future Plans:

This mod is a continuation of the true Rome II HD project that aims to reskin the entire game with custom assets while keeping the spirit of the vanilla game alive. We strive to make quality content that covers the future Roman eras and eventually the enemies Rome faced. This means there will be full reskins for the Grand Campaign, and Third Century down the line. Stay tuned for more information on these projects.



Performance has been optimized with texture quality ranging from 256-1024. Frames per second and overall smoothness of gameplay should be comparable to minor reskins and even vanilla gameplay. Your computer should not struggle to run this mod.



This mod reskins the units of the Imperator Augustus campaign so any mod which does the same thing will be incompatible.


This mod is not compatible with Divide et Impera nor any other major reskin of Roman units. It is meant to be standalone and used with the vanilla game.



This mod has case by case permissions with many assets available if permission is requested. Some assets may be barred from use if their original creators disagree with the request. Some contributors have asked their work not to be shared and we must honor that. Anyone found in violation of these permissions will have their mods flagged and take down notices will be sent. Those modders looking to use any asset will contact Celticus directly and put in a request for the specific name of the rigid model they wish to use and permission will either be granted or declined.
