    In fact, the area is very well covered for the moment and the variety will only further increase once the steppe regionals are done.I you're interested in the north(west)ern pontic littoral you should keep an eye on the twitter feed in the near future

    Edit: Too slow
    Yeah I understood that the Maeotains would be presenting most of the sub groups along with the Doryphoroi as well, I mean at this stage of the Kingdom a lot of local populace was mixed and part of the Hoplites etc, I am just greedy for new units, there cant be enough I sure will impatiently .

    1. Why does the East Celt and West Celt Light Cavalry have the exact same stats despite the fact the East Celtic has no clothing or wearing any armor?

    2. Why does the Hemithorakitai have a better missile attack than the Thureophoroi?

    1. They don't in 2.3, they're different skins on the same model.
    2. Because they're using longchai, whereas the Thureophoroi are using lighter javelins.

    Looking into the Recruitment Viewer I noticed some things:

    1. Thorakitai Epilektoi are only trained while standard Hoplites are highly trained, though they are hardy does that balance it ?

    2. Doryphoroi Pontikoi have as much mass as a unit as most archers and skirmishers.

    3. Hippomachoi have AP secondary attack (as have most Cavalry units, though it was already addressed I think) and their secondary attack is as strong as Hippakontistai, Xystophoroi etc and considerably less than other elites like Thessalian cavalry with swords.

    1. I'll change them.
    2. They should be 0.85 - they're still barely-equipped levies at the end of the day.
    3. They're not equivalent to Thessalians or Hetairoi, they're very good regional units.

    2. Okay, theyre 0.8 for your interest.
    3. Too bad, theyre my go to Lancers in my Pergamon campaign, and I thought they would be the equivalent of Thessalians as they are sought after by most powers in Mikra Asia it seems.

    Edit: Also it was probably already answered but here it goes. Will the Thessalians, Molossians and Lydians get more different skins in comparison to each other ?

    Edit 2: Is it intended that the non-mercenary warriors for Celts are mostly untrained, same goes for most Italics like Umbrians, Ligurians etc. ? The description for the Gargokladioi for example doesnt mention anything of them being levied troops nor do they have the is_peasant trait.

    Despite the description regarding the late versions of the Germanic Units being better equipped (Druthiz, Warthoz, Ridanz). They only receive 1 additional point in their shield stat, why not have their melee and missile attack increase by an additional point as well?

    Especially since the description of the Warjoz says they are now using iron-tipped spears yet they still have the same offensive stats?

    The late Lugians units like the Toutaginoi, the Kareus also have the same issue but to a lesser extent.
