The early army arrayed, with their trade-mark scythed chariot.

The later option with imitation legionaries.

The later option with imitation legionaries.

This army (II/48) is put together from a hodge-podge of manufacturers, which rather reflects its heterogeneous nature. The army has two basic configurations, one with a scythed chariot and a phalanx of pike. The other with imitation legionaries. The first one of these is complete. The other is under way.

Pontic cavalry options.

The mounted elements of this army is the same for both. The core is a 3Cv general and some Pontic 2LH.

Pontic cavalry (Warmodelling).

Then there is a choice of Sarmatians (3Kn), Skythians (2LH) or more Pontic cavalry (3Cv).

Additional mounted: Sarmatians (Donningtons), Skythians and Pontics (Freikorp).

The heavy foot are either four 4Pk and a SCh or five 4Bd.

Early Pontic option: pike and terror weapon.

Later Pontic option: imitation legionaries (five 4Bd).

Later Pontic option: imitation legionaries (five 4Bd).

The light foot are a 4Ax and a mixture of 2Ps and 3Ax. The 4Ax are Thureophoroi; the others are Thracian and Pontic foot. The most useful configuration with e pike are three elements of auxilia and one of psiloi.

Pontic light foot: Thureophoroi, Asiatic skirmishers (Freikorp), Kappadokian foot (Corvus Belli), and Thracians(Freikorp).

This is an army with a lot of character and a useful mix of troops.
