    Well done!
    I recommend a pugio rather than a spear, because in close quarters combat, a dagger will serve you better than a spear.

    Nobody's going to mention the new Kushite javelin soldiers on the feed? Fine. I'll do it. They're AWESOME.

    Although I am not fond of using up the remaining unit slots for a relatively unobtainable, lightly armed skirmisher unit - I will say that they are well made.

    Our decisions on what is and isn't featured on the unit list are based on the historicity and appropriateness of those units, not what you are personally fond of.

    I knew I was going to be told off, it was just too tempting for you
    I am pretty sure that the unit slot could have been used up in a better way, but I'll leave that talk for when the unit slots are no more.

    In this particular instance, it was to ensure we have a balanced and complete roster for the region, especially since Ethiopians will also appear in Egypt and Arabia.

    Yes, I am familiar with the current formula.

    Fantastic work on the new Kushite skirmishers. I just hope the Hellenistic dude facing them on the last screenshot is fine

    Didn't the team said that the greeks units are complete or almost complete? There's what left? Updating the Thorakitai model and some BGs units?

    I think its basically Baktria elite cavalry (that will also be their BG), the only hellenic core unit that is missing.

    We will either find a way, or make one.

    Exactly, thanks Jervaj! And some units are still placeholders, like the hellenic standard bearer. I just hate that unit, it seems completly out of the game due to having the rtw old textures. Before I wouldn't care but after doing a playtesting campaign with the Seleucids I was looking at it every battle and it sure does not fit with the others.

    Edit: But it will be changed eventually of course. Huge respect to the members of the team who do that because I have tried to work with unit models and failed every time.

    The Pontic BG has to be done as well, though I dont think theyre really hellenistic.

    Pontic BG is going to be replaced? By what? I would love to know. Also will we be getting more eastern infantry? As pontos i feel like they are seriously lacking in Eastern infantry for the faction they are. I mean until you take the caucus area, you cant even hire "hill men" who use axes and javelins. You get Skirmishers, Archers, Slingers, Eastern spearmen and thats it. Meanwhile Baktria gets Hycranian hill men, and hayasdan the tabargne eranshahr (shield axemen who can fight in line)

    There aren't any more eastern units for Anatolia, barring a later shielded cavalry unit. The eastern roster is pretty much done.
