...in the second view in the army list i did find an other Roman army of Milvian Bridge period: Post-Severan Middle Imperial Roman 285 AD to 324 AD. For our battle we did use that list: Late Imperial Roman West 307 AD to 408 AD. Are there more Lists like this one?

I'm sorry, Vodnik -- I don't understand the question?

...it is not a question but a statement or a fact. There are 2 lists for the same periode. How many lists do you need for a roman army to fight the battle at the milvian bridge? This could be a question. As a particular detail is the existence of a bad horse. In the post Severan list you can use the bad horse only for an eastern army as a dromedar. In the LIR list it is a real option...

Ah, okay -- it was a rhetorical question (a question that does not require an answer).

As for the fact that the lists overlap -- you are an experienced gamer, I'm sure you're aware that there can be reasons why that occurs -- especially in such a large polity as the Roman Empire, where a reorganization of the army does not necessarily happen overnight.

In DBA, the Milvian Bridge is supposed to feature Constantine with a Late Imperial Roman army against Maxentius with a Middle Imperial Roman one. I'd assumed it was the same in Triumph!, except the lists would be Late Imperial Roman West and Post-Severan Middle Imperial Roman, respectively.
