Royal Armies of The Hyborean Age: Army List (Corinthia)
Corinthia 750 points
Banner: Varies by city state
Corinthia is actually composed of independent city states which league together in time of war. Each city state would contribute entire units to the army and these units would carry the banner and shield device of their own city. Examples of such devices are a stylized horse head, a wolf's head in profile, and a hawk in profile with wings folded.
The Corinthian army depends upon heavy infantry which is armed with a pike to compensate for the small numbers of cavalry in the army. The army of Corinthia totally refuses to use the bow as this is considered an unmanly weapon.
The cavalry makes up 5-15% of the army and is all heavy B class cavalry in units of 12 figures.
The infantry is entirely native and is 85-95% of the army. It's breakdown follows:
Civic Militia- -HIP- -B- -36-48- - 67-100
Elite Infantry- -HIP- -A- -36- -0-33
Old Glory's Macedonian Successor units will work well for Elite Corinthian Infantry
Various hellenistic troops for the civic millitia
