Hi Folks,
New here from RTW.

Which units in the Alexander campaign would people rate as best?

Oh, and what are the Macedonian archer units called ( if there are any...)?

They can hire Cretan Archers I think, though I don't know where (I love the faction specific mercs). They have them in custom battle anyway. For the most part you will have to rely on Agrianan Javelinmen for missile support, since Alexander's amy didn't historically use archers to any great extent. The strength is in the cavalry and infantry.

For the Persians I'd say the best units would be Bactrian Heavy Cavalry and Immortals. For the Barbarians, Sicklemen. For Macedon, Companions and Phalangites. I prefer using Allied Cavalry to Companions, since they are more available.
