Is Scipio Africanus a good general in Evony?

Scipio Africanus is one of the best Evony Ground PvP Generals in the game. He has huge HP and Attack buffs for ground troops which makes him ideal for this march type.

A huge part of these buffs also comes from his special skill, meaning he does not need a huge amount of development to make good. However, he should not be used in defense, as most of these buffs are only active in attack.
