Neo-Babylonian

Historical Overview Section

The Neo-Babylonian Empire, also known as the Chaldean Empire, was a period of Mesopotamian history which began in 626 BC and ended in 539 BC.1 During the preceding three centuries, Babylonia had been ruled by their fellow Akkadian speakers and northern neighbours, Assyria. A year after the death of the last strong Assyrian ruler, Assurbanipal, in 627 BC, the Assyrian empire spiralled into a series of brutal civil wars. Babylonia rebelled under Nabopolassar, a member of the Chaldean tribe which had migrated from the Levant to south eastern Babylonia in the early 9th century BC. In alliance with the Medes, Persians, Scythians and Cimmerians, they sacked the city of Nineveh in 612 BC, and the seat of empire was transferred to Babylonia for the first time since the death of Hammurabi in the mid 18th century BC.

Using the army in ADLG

  • Wow +5 Command with a Strategist. Cavalry, camels, Chariots - this can be a small but fast moving, hard hitting army that plays totally differently to all of the previous lists in this theme.
  • The 4 armoured spear are also some of the toughest and most durable troops in this theme so far - a great anchor for your swirling mounted army to go around.
  • Don't forget that the Camelry can't move with other mounted. But with +5 command that should not be a problem.
