    The main reason is probably the same why we haven't seen Indian phalangites, Pictish legionaries and Egyptian horse archers. I will second Nordling that it's not only about training, but also a...

    Re: Replenishment System Makes Battles Pointless

    I wonder, if this is your only gripe about 'unrealism' in mostly arcady games that TW series are.

    Not to be mean, but this looks like a primitivised version of PDX games. And, not to be mean once again, more like a Civ, which I don't really like (although enjoyed Beyond Earth a fair bit).
