Hi All

Rules book on way but a chum has shown me list for EAP

As I read it if I go for Immortals, Sparabara or Assyrians I have to

1. Pay for front unit of troops
2. Then pay for the second unit of missile troops
3. Stick em together as a big unit

I don't get choice to just have the front foot troops or buy both units and have one of foot and one of bow acting independently.

Think I am right but just checking.

Several of us got a pack of 6mm troops to start a force each

Hi Baldie. Welcome to the forum.
Yes these all have to be fielded as large units you can't split them up. You may notice you pay a little less in points for the rear rank for this 'inconvenience' ....there is a silver lining Smile

Once you get to know the rules Baldie you will appreciate that large units are a real plus in Impetus. This Early Persian infantry is much tougher being large units.

As an aside the Immortals and Sparabara were essentially deep units of archers with a single rank of spear at the front.

Yep Gaius is right. I play EAP's often and the large units of T's certainly give this army some needed 'back bone'. Quite a good fight when up agains't an historical opponent like Hoplites.
