In looking at the reference armies on the last page of the rulebook, I noticed the Macedonian armies actually total up to 49 and 79 points respectively.

It seems that Chiliarch is valued at five deployment points although the unit counter shows a value of four. I'm assuming this was a tweak made during play testing and that the Chiliarch game counter is correct, not the reference page.

Similarly the Persian 80 pt reference army actually sums up to 82 points. The four unit troop "Sparabara, Immortals, Median Cavalry, Levies" seems under counted at 13 dp. My math is 5+4+4+2=15 dp. The poor Levies must be sent home for a fair fight... meh, who fights fair in war?!

Beyond that, it's a nice add to a nice game system. Keep up the good work!
