As my Western Patrician army spans both this period and the Late Roman I have been looking at the lists. I notice the Comitatus only have shield, I take it this is a typo and it should be large shield as the points are the same as the Legionarii?

No its correct, the Comitatus come with a heavy throwing spear

As I understand it, it would be down to fighting style - these fellows would be more aggressive and less encumbered

I am inclined to agree if the bodyguard are 'Barbarians' if Roman I wouldn't be too sure. Also the bodyguards don't ever seem to have guarded many bodies as the history of the late empire is riddled with generals and claimants all dead, so how aggressive they were is up for grabs.

I reading up some histories of the later period so will keep my eyes open.

cheers
