It's just a wish but can Babarians Axeman?

 

In every film u see babarians swinging and throwing axes, but not in TWA.

It would nice to see some axes instead of Pilas for the babarian swordsman or just a range unit like roman spearman with axes for the babarians.

 

It's just an idea but i would love to see it:D

If you go to the tavern on the memes thread, you will see some axemen amongst dinosaurs. I'm new to TWA and have not played any other TW game, so I can only guess that they existed in a previous stage and went extinct :P

Well, i know that axes would have some issues against bows and stuff.

But for the "babarian feeling" it would be great and think about the time difference between late romans and early greeks.

That in mind i dont think axes should be a chronological problem.

If fact the first units that the barbs ever had were axemen up to tier 3 in mid 2015 it was great, very fast and maneuverable units with high AP, but now the role that those axemen fulfilled is being fulfill by the faxmen, so unless they change how one of those 2 types units work adding axemen will just be a clone branch the the units tree.

If I understood right he's more interested in Axe as a ranged weapon rather than melee :D
