Roman infantry occasionally used a wedge shaped formation for pushing back the enemy, with several units in conjunction forming a jaw of men. 

 

the formation would toggle like alexander's wedge, but would have few stat changes. it's for pushing back and compressing the enemy, and increasing combat width while in formation, but not specifically for damage like leonidas' shield bash.

 

while repositioning the unit's formation with ALT in this mode, it would increase the number of spike shapes the squad forms, between 1 and 3. having the most spikes of men would obviously increase the formed combat effectiveness frontally as the unit advances, since men between the spikes are attacked on both sides.

 

it'd be nice to make roman medium infantry more unique by giving them this formation.
