    I would love to see the stats of that unit.

    Yes, they've got some heavy infantry (native hoplites) and axemen still to come, and there are more regional units as well.

    This new unit sounds like the new bodyguard of either Pontus or the Sarmatians proper.

    More likely Pontus because they seem to have adopted helenistic equipment.

    They look SO awesome. I wouldn't be surprised if they are the bodyguards for Kimmerios Bosporos, to be honest, although they already have a new bodyguard unit.

    Indeed, KB already has a new bodyguard, they don't need another one.

    You're spoiling the lousy Sarmatian players, quit it!

    I think it's the new BG of Pontus since historically, pontus did use a lot of sarmatians in their armies.

    They are the new BG unit for the Sauromatae.

    Pontos are due their own bodyguard unit, but they won't be in 2.35.

    btw, can I ask if there's a voicemod for the nomadic cultures planned?.

    Great job on the Sauromatae Bgs. Do they use swords or spears as secundary weapons?

    Will the Sauros get any new government options on EB2.35?

    Btw, I'm enjoying the new Facebook trivia but I do have an suggestion: I think it would be nice if they were accompanied by some related picture, like today a picture from an thureos, or something like that. Either than that keep the good work.

    Planned in the most general sense, in that we'd like to do a voicemod for everything eventually. Not planned in the sense of having anything lined up to achieve that goal, yet.

    They have lances as secondary.

    No new governments planned; the Sauromatae are not a settled faction and don't become one, which is why their options are limited.

    Thank you for the answer, makes sense.

    The quality of these previews is improving. Nice
    But what with these Playmobil-like hair and beard ? Sad

    Great updates from twitter, really great work. Maybe I will welcome bigger screenshots in some cases.

    Also I have one suggestion about Sarmatian cataphracts: In my personal opinion previewed unit should be categorized as lancers (Contarii in Latin, Kontophoroi in Greek, I have no idea how to call them in barbarian language – maybe Baexdzhyntae from EB I) as they have unprotected horses. These Sarmatian lancers even influenced the Roman Imperial Army. In the province of Pannonia there were at least two Contarii units - Ala I Ulpia Contariorum, Ala I Cananefatum. For example I post this tombstone of the member of Ala I Cananefatum:

    They only have unbarded horses for the moment, because we don't have appropriately armoured ones yet.

    You have the awesome Maryagatai to fill that role iirc they are even available as mercenaries so you can get them into your Roman (or whatever) late imperial army!
