    There are moments (in history), in which a nation owes,
    if it wants to be considered as a great one, to be able to fight.
    Even without hope of winning. Just because it has to.

    it´s been a bit quite in the frontdoor - but behind is alot of progress going on.

    True...Armenians will have a tiny roster of units acting as rebels in their regions, mercenaries and AOR units available to Romans and all Arabs.
    As AOR/mercenaries a unit of heavy cavalry will be available.
    Remember this?

    Actually this unit represents lower nobillity that joined in every side gave more money.
    But as rebels Armenians exept this unit will have the following units:
    A general's bodyguard (with diferent horse type)).
    A border guard heavy javelinmen
    A border guard heavy foot archers
    A border guard axemen
    A palace guard heavy spearmen.
    Its a quite big roster considering that they will be rebel faction ONLY.
    EDIT: The dely is my fault ...I have 2 cracked spondyls in my spine and i can not use a chair for more than few minutes until my physiotherapy completes. I have terible pain in my waist.

Such was the policy of Basill II that when he died in 1025 the empire had the biggest gold treasury in the western world the same time it had more than 180000 stratiotae (horsemen), 800 war ships and 1200 transposrt ones and all of them after 50 years of constant wars!

    Yes but after his death the Empire begun its steady decline. His successor Constantine VIII was direct opposite of him.
    Lazy and stupid and his successors were the same. Not even 50 years after Basil's death and the Empire went from
    superpower to rump state after Manzikert.
    Only trough Komnenos dynasty beginning with Alexios I. period of stability came and slow reconquer of lost territories.
    But what is interesting is that the Empire was strong when it had a strong individual as emperor, someone
    like in Leo VI quote that no luxury or personal wealth is more important than state prosperity.
    After Manuel's death in 1180., just like Basil's in 1025. period with incompetent emperors followed and in
    both cases epilogue was disastrous, Manzikert and 1204. With exception that one in 1204. was a little bit epochal
    because it meant virtual disappearance of state.

    I'm currently reading Niketas Choniates annals, he was a spectator of sack of Constantinople and it
    wouldn't be a exaggeration if I say that that was a saddest act in history of mankind.
    I mean, I knew before what has happen after so-called Crusaders conquered the city, but
    some details are truly monstrous... I won't write it here...


    Anyway, here is proposition for some future release of this mod, period after 1204.

    True...The last glimps of hope was Romanos IV Diogenis that was a centurion and he had the same sence of duty but the "traitors" made sure that he would not stay Emperor for long.
    After Romanos' surrender the traitors dispanded 50000 Thematic troops of Asia Minor in one year only under the fear of a military rebelion. Turkomans and Seljucks actually began their full invasion after Arp Aslan's death in 1074. From 1074 to 1079 Turks created a Muslim Roman State!!!
    EDIT: When the main campaign will be finished we will use the existing unit models with two focused campaigns (new maps).
    1) The strugle for Italy from 1000 AD when Normans already made their 1st permanent conquest in Italy.
    2) The strugle for Anatolia when Seljucks already made a state also few years after 1000 AD.
    Its true though that the existing map offers a more detailed campaigns from 1000 to 1097.
    Hulgarians can be in their finall place and christians, Normans will besiege the last Roman stronghold Bari, Germans will invade Italy , Fatimids will replace 3 Emirates creating a huge superpower etc.
