Royal Armies of The Hyborean Age: Army List (Hyrkania)
Hyrkania 1000 Points
Despite it's large size Hyrkania is sparsely populated and does not have a true national organization. Yet it is more a nation than the various barbarian groups. There would not be any mercenaries in a Hyrkanian force and the army would generally rely on cavalry. the Hyrkanians most resemble the Huns or Mongols.
There would be no uniforms though Hyrkanians favored bright colored silk trousers and dull colors elsewhere. Individual units might carry colored banners chosen by their chief.
Infantry would only be present in Hyrkania for defense. It would never be more than 50% of a Hyrkanian army and would never leave Hyrkania. Infantry types are as follows.
Garrison Spearmen- -MI- -B- -24- -67-100
Levy Archers- -LI- -C- -12- -0-33
Cavalry would be the entire force used outside of Hyrkania and at least 50% of an army within Hyrkania. Below is the breakdown of Hyrkanian cavalry types
Horse Archers- -MC- -A- -12- -0-33
