    I am not sure if you are aware of that, Jake, but they would only fight naked and as for sunbathing they would always put their pelts on to protect their skin from the negative effects of the sun radiation...

    When it comes to my favourite rosters, those would be the Successors, of course. The Seleucids and Bactrians, in particular. Though, as D*M*W mentioned above, Pontus is actually a very interesting faction, as well. An amalgam of the eastern and hellenic influences. I used to play Pontus quite often on RTW and M2TW mods, but I have yet to play them with DeI. I have a feeling that this will actually be my next campaign...

    just by looks my vote goes for Hay/Armenia Kentronakan Doriphoroi and the Nkharar units (inf/cav), the late carthage units and ofcourse the romans.
    Close behind I must say Seleukidai with their Argyraspides Thorakitai and the late pikes and hoplites.
    But for me all units in the game has their own flavour and neiche so its really hard to say any favourites.

    What DeI has given me no other mod ever has been able to.
    Its just astounding and glorious to see all those units

    As french is my native language I feel obliged to correct you the correct spelling would be je ne sais quoi. c'est being the equivalent to it is.

    Anyway, to go back on topic, the Mauryans have a fantastic roster.

    Definitely Meroe. Their low tier unarmored units covered in body paint -- javelinmen, kushite axemen -- look fukkin metal. The roleplay of emerging out of Aethiopia with an army of (in the Hellenistic perspective) savages and laying waste to the Ptolemaic dynasty is so much fun.

    Ohhh yesss I am so excited to hear about this. My last campaign I played as Medewi, a faction I always found really appealing, and it was great but I ended it quicker than usual because you get to explore the small roster they have fairly fast (and tier III infantry units are "just" hoplites and the same axemen unit only shielded). I would love to see some new additions.

    And I agree with papaya beast, their tier I and II units are actually the coolest looking ones: the painted warriors (which are actually awesome stat wise too with their high morale) and painted light cav. Axemen look badass too but I think they could look even more badass. Just throw war paint everywhere!

    Nah I'd prefer it if someone made a sub-mod for Persian units - I need that for my AAR.

    For the Greek sure...For most others though I highly doubt it! Persians were unstoppable back then but Greek were something totally different.
    Quality VS Quantity...

    What would you like to see ? Though we can't really make it, since it would be quite anachronistic for our DEI standards.

    Ha.

    Yes but I don't think DEI is 100% accurate is it? If someone made a sub-mod for it - would be nice.

    This is what I'd like them to resemble: Especially those yellow Immortals.

    Well, we certainly are one of the most Historical accurate overhauls around. According to researchers and users. Τhere are very few instances we sacrificed Historical accuracy for Gameplay reasons, but our units are most surely based on Historical depictions (you can always check the sources from the Faction Rewiews we had) so no anachronistic or fantasy units in DEI...Of course everyone is free to make submods of his choice

    My favourites are Rome,Sparta, Baktria and if possibly add Judah. They would have an interesting roster.

    I think Judea is a possible rebel faction, but I think they were dominated by the Seleucids or the Ptolemies at the time. There are some Jewish units though, mostly hellenic themed.

    I mean they would be cool to play in the IA campaign. From what I read in the book The Army of Herod the Great, they would have had an interesting mix of units. They even had Thracian guards.

    For me, all this mod needs is playable Judah in the the IA campaign and a Numbered Roman Legions mod. Keep up the good work.
