I've got them up to 299, but with a warning: some of them have not been checked against anyone else's work.
It's an MS Word document, I can send it to you zipped, if you want.

here's my version (off the top of my head)

1. Audisne tubas, Marce? Non solum tubas audio sed etiam ordinares militm et impedimentorum plenos videre possum.
Do you hear the tubas, Mark? I not only hear the tubas but also I am able to see the foot soldiers and many of the baggage wagons.

2. Quas legiones videmus? Eae legiones nuper ex Gallia venerunt.
Which legion do we see? That legion recently came from the Gaul.

3. Quid ibi facerunt? Studebantne pugare an sine virtute erant?
What did the do there? Were they eager to fight or were they without bravery?

4. Multa proelia facerant et magnas victorias et multos captivos reportaverunt.
