If you decide to use the bosporan kingdom in the dark ages RR map heres some suggestions:

History: The bosporan kingdom was a vassal to the ERE, they had steppe, roman & slight eastern influences, there units reflect this.

Barbarian Peasants
Steppe Militia (similar to steppe spearman or the gallic warband, could also be similar to steppe swordsman)
Bosporan Comitases (similar to roman comitases, slightly weaker)
Northern Infantry (similar to steppe heavy spearmen)
Barbarian chosen swordsmen/ Steppe noble Infantry (similar to gothic warriors)
Bosporan Archers (similar to eastern archers, light infantry too)
Archer warband (Similar to Goth raiders, medium sword infantry)
Bosporan horseman (Similar to pontic heavy calvary, light armoured, large shield, longsword, Javelins)
Northern lancers (similar to vandal lancers)
Bosporan noble elites (inbetween equites cataphratii & hunnic heavy calvary)
Bosporan scouts (light horse archer unit)
Northern Armoured Horse archers (heavy horse archer unit, also light-medium calvary unit)

Feel free to comment

I've read up on this. They do not seem strong enough or famous enough to warrant their own faction, unfortunately.

We can customize the rebels of that area to be Bosporan, I think, to add a bit of flavor- much like what we are going to do with the Suevi kingdom.

yeah, thats alright, just an idea for any units in the area

Edit in: Just thought about some new ideas for the faction, don't go & create a new unit roster just some additions to the other units

Northern axemen - similar to the two handed axemen of some BI factios
Northern infantry to Crimearean Spearmen (same unit just name change)
Archer warband to Black sea archers (very effective archer unit, also some good melee capabilities)
Bosporan skirmishers (units with javelin or some hand projectile equipment & light infantry capabilities)
Northern lancers to Steppe lancer cavalry
Bosporan scouts to black sea horse archers (effective horse bowmen with light cavalry capabilities)

Probably have bosporan faction as roman-barbarian
Rather than a faction of its own just a major rebel faction

If any comments just say
