Historical Overview Section

The northern half of Oman (beside modern-day Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, plus Balochistan and Sindh provinces of Pakistan) was part of the Maka6 satrapy of the Persian Achaemenid Empire. By the time of the conquests of Alexander the Great, the satrapy may have existed in some form and Alexander is said to have stayed in Purush, its capital, perhaps near Bam, in Kerman province. From the 2nd half of the 1st millennium BDE waves of Semitic speaking peoples migrated from central and western Arabia to the east. The most important of these tribes are known as Azd. On the coast Parthian and Sassanian colonies were maintained.

Using the army in ADLG

  • This is one of the armies with Camel; warriors - very effective against enemy horse, they are the cutting edge of the army. Getting them into early combat against enemy mounted troops is key
  • The large numbers of swordsmen can also dominate rough terrain, and if well screened should run down enemy mixed bow/spear formations
