It's a matter of contention whether there were 300 cannon at Castillon, ie part of the 300 guns might be handguns. But either way you're wedded to static defensive positions in order to use them effectively. This can easily become a major drawback, especially if the romans have more than one army available.
with "if" you can put the town of Paris into a bottle.
If you have more than one roman army i will have more than one medieval army, i wonder why you need to give them that kind of advantages. with several medieval armies i can wipe out a single roman army etc..
