Parthia's my favorite playable faction, but the Selucids have a highly flexible combination of phalanx and cavalry to reccomend them. They don't have any horse archers, but they're still more versatile than the other Hellenistae.

I personally like the seluecids better because they are more interesting to play in that they have a wider variety of units in which to choose from and deploy, so dare I say it, there is IMO more strategy. Parthia is mainly just cavalry, and if your going for the long campain, that gets REALLY boring.

all it takes is at least two rams, and you can have Cataphracts charging into the backs of the units your one units of Desert infantry is holding at the gate.

Severe losses of eastern infantry isn't a problem.
