I have always found the scarcity of female units in RTW to be somewhat of a disappointment. I recently became inspired to add a few to the game, and these are a few of them. Since I am no artist, I used the existing models and skins already in the game.
This mod adds two units to RTW. Amazon Chariots and Amazon Archers, recruitable by the Greek Cities and Scythia. These units have been created for RTW ver 1.5. I cannot vouch for whether or not they will work in earlier versions of the game.
For a much closer look, take a little stroll up to 'Themiskyra'. I've always received a warm greeting from them.
Nice mod though. I've always thought that at least the Scythians should have this elusive unit. Seeing as they have been rumored as the likely source of the "Amazon" legend - them or the Sarmatians. Female archers making up for nearly half a known army would've had a remarkable impact on the Greek and Roman psyche.

where do the files go?

They go in the same folders as they are in the zip file, except within the RTW folder folder on your drive. So the files on the Data folder in the zip file go in the RTW\Data folder on your drive.
