Seeing this quote is hilarious enough. Seeing this quote next to Rorshach is a riot.

Been playing Rome 2 Total War and have never imagined Roman legionnaires smiling, its pretty a good break from all the cruelty that war gives

Roman soldiers were indeed  the most greatest soldiers of the Ancient World despite for known of great losses. Those men build the Roman Empire and held it together.
