    Default BACTRIA - faction & units - general discussion

    We know that will be a province 'Bactria' on the campaign map and will be Bactrian faction with 4 regions.

    We don't know Bactria will be playable Free-LC or DLC, but this faction will be.

    How looked Bactrian units roster? In mods there are very difference between Bactrian roster.

    I think Bactrian will have:

    - phalangites (Hellenistic Sarissoforoi),
    - native phalangites (Bactrian region native phalanx),
    - elite phalangites (Hellenistic Agema),
    - thureophoroi,
    - thorakitai,
    - cavalry (looks like Hetairoi),
    - guard cavalry (heavy armored),
    - war elephants,
    - native horse archers,
    - Hellenistic and native archers

    What are your types?

    This should do the trick

    I guess roughly the same as the seleucids but lacking the most elite hellenistic units but with some additional eastern iranian skirmishers, and some horse archer options.

    the Baktrian Roster of Europa Barbarorum is a dream.

    I hope CA's Baktria will be similar to that.

    These are Kushan's native troops. Probably similar to this.

    I think that Bactrian will have unit which we seen in last screen - Pontic infantry. It will be recolored.

    It is not a playable faction, so expect a radom mixed rooster of hellenistic and irano-indian units.

    I really hope they make a Bactrian DLC

    That way we can have Greek, Bactrian and Indian units all rolled into one faction. Quite ecclectic if you ask me.

    Bactrian soldiers should have one their type helmet (only Bactria) + other standard Hellenistic helmets.
