Well, thirst of all do not attack Parthia nor the town to the west until you have a strong economy. Instead, attack Pontus.
Nether the less, live a small army in your homeland in case Parthia and Scythia Estern attack. Avoid training any of 1 and 2 tier infantry unless you are forced to, to storm a settlement or you have to grrison a town. Instead, use Horse archers. They are fast, cheap and effective.
