These people with their hit and fade tactics could be put to good use for the Alanicus cause. With this in mind, Alanicus started to restructure the Army of Syria, stationing large numbers of Auxiliaries to garrisons and replacing them with fast, mounted nomads. He had come to respect the Syrian bow at first hand and now drafted hordes of their archers into the army. A heavy unit of Cataphracts was also sent down from Armenia to give them some back bone. Alanicus was crafting a swift, agile killing machine that would make the sky rain with arrows and the ground thunder with hooves.
Armenian Cataphracts bolster the Army of Syria, giving some heavy weight to the units of bowmen.
