Athenians

ATHENIANS
Athenians nav image.pngThe Athenian city state relied on it's naval power for it's ascendancy in mainland Greece but also fielded an army second only to Sparta.
A tribal system was used whereby each of the 10 tribes provided a contingent called a taxis. These would not be regimented or equal in size and there could be dissent between the tribal commanders (called taxiarchs).
The maximum number of Hoplites fielded seems to have been 10,000. In addition skirmishers and cavalry would accompany them, but not exceed 15% of the Hoplite total.

Caesarian Romans

These are the men who came, saw and conquered the British Isles lead by Julius Caesar in 55-54 BC. Caesar also led them against the Roman Senate itself in 49 BC, defeating his rival Pompey at the battle of Pharsalus. They were also, of course, the same Romans who fought the Ancient Germanic Tribes and the Gauls.

Hittites

Hattusilis I united the Hattic kingdoms and founded the Hittite Kingdom. Later kings gradually conquered surrounding regions. The Empire reaches its greatest extent with the conquests of Suppiluliuma I who defeated Arzawa and Mitanni. Muwatalli defended Hittite gains in Syria against the Egyptians, inflicting a defeat on the Egyptians in a massed chariot battle at Kadesh. Hattusili III made peace with Egypt and contended with the Kaska invaders and Achaian adventurers as well as the rising power of Assyria. Later kings extended Hittite rule over Cyprus.

Huns

For a nation that would have such a devastating impact on the greatest Empires of its day, we know almost nothing about the origin of the Huns. Early references are to peoples who can now be identified as having not been Hunnic, such as Scythians, Cimmerians, Parthians, etc.

Imperial Romans

In the 200 years between the reforms of Augustus and the rise of Septimius Severus the Roman army fought to expand the Empire and saw action in the dark forests of Germany, the baking heat of Syria, the mists of Britain and the mountains of Dacia. That they conquered so many different peoples in such different terrain is amazing in itself; that they did it using basically the same organisation and troops doubly so. Their enemies had to contend not only with Roman weaponry but with their morale and discipline as well.

Libyans

This is the army for people who like painting flesh! The Libyans’ main items of dress were a leather phallus sheath and an ostrich feather, and little else. Occasionally they would add rows of beads and a heavy cloak but generally they fought nearly naked. This did not stop them being particularly aggressive, and they launched raids into Egypt for over 2,000 years, until they eventually founded their own dynasty early in the first millennium BC, after successive migratory waves had flowed west out of the Libyan Desert.

Picts

It is likely that the Picts, or Cruithni as they called themselves, spread into the northernmost parts of the British mainland from the Orkney Islands, only really making an impact when the Caledonian tribes barring their way to the south were defeated by the Romans under Septimius Severus in the early 3rd century.

Scythians

Since the dawn of civilisation the settled peoples of the world had been plagued by incursions of nomads. First they came on foot with their belongings on their backs, to steal from cities and farms. Following the invention of the wheel they rode into battle in carts and chariots instead, while desert nomads took to the camel. Waves of raiders came and went.

Sea Peoples

The Sea Peoples were a confederation of tribes from around the Mediterranean islands, the Aegean, Anatolia, Balkans and Levant. These tribes included the Sherden, Lukka, Peleset, Tjekker, Sheklesh, Dardani, Weshwesh, Teresh and Ekwesh. These tribes were a constant menace as pirate sea raiders who attacked Greece, Cyprus, Hittite coasts, Phoenicia, Canaan and Egypt. They were often hired as mercenaries. A huge confederation attacked Egypt at the end of the New Kingdom by land and sea.

Spartans

While most other states were happy to have their citizens turn up for battle fully equipped and able to march forward in a line the Spartan state took a far more regimented view of life generally. Training began at a young age and discipline was harsh, enabling the Spartans to field the most powerful land army on mainland Greece. The Spartans had the only standing army of the period and this was regimented and drilled to a degree not seen elsewhere. The other advantage was a defined command structure.

Syrians

Hurrian chariot warrior aristocracy (Maryannu) dominated the city states of Syria and Canaan. Some of these, the Hyksos, invaded Egypt. Later, the Hurrians formed the powerful Mitannian Empire in Syria and North Mesopotamia which fought resurgent Egypt for control of the region and ruled Assyria for a time. The Canaanites with Mitannian allies fought the Egyptians at Megiddo. The Hittites defeated Syrians and Hurrians and incorporated them into their empire as vassal kingdoms.

World of the Greeks

Between the 7th and 3rd Centuries BC the Greeks gave the known world artistic, philosophical and scientific advances but also developed a form of warfare that would rule the roost until the time of Alexander. This was the Hoplite, a citizen-soldier defending his city and it's trade, settling in the far flung regions of Asia and Africa and finally becoming the most sought after mercenary in the world.
