As a player I gave Alanicus the chance to create his own Syrian army, with the brief to give it a very Eastern look and feel. What he came up with was a very light, fast moving force of mostly missile troops.
The III Gallica Legion and the I Thracian Horse were to be supported by a unit of unarmoured archers, a unit of horse archers and two units of Slingers. The solid formation of the Legion will be flanked by two very flexible wings of missile troops. It will be interesting to see how this 'hit and fade' army stands up to a Western one.
Above can be seen the troops that will make the Syrian Army.
