hello all,
I just bought this rulebook to make a Byzantines army, and I was looking to buy some figs to make a 6 point army. Looking to hear how others have built their armies.

Id love to see how others have built theirs and some of the tips you have learned

Started with 2pts HG bow, 2 pts HG, 1pt Wrs bow, 1 pt Wrs in 4 units. But that doesn't use the scouting ability, so dropped a pt of HG and got a pt of levy, but could use that scouting still more with some Steppe, so drop a pt of HG again, but now the HG units are down to 4 figures! And so it goes on. Can now do two 6 pt Byzantine, and separate figures for the Basileus. Beware!
The Byzantines are very flexible with all the different troop types and it will probably come down to scenario or opponent, or tournament rules, but most likely, as with Saga, what you are comfortable using.
So the 2pts HG bow, 2 pts HG, 1pt Wrs bow, 1pt Wrs is a good start, and maybe add a pt of Levy and a pt of Steppe later.
