I guess that's fair, but the other things could still be integrated if folks like them.

Yeah I think plate looks really cool.

Also, her throwing disk thingy is ridiculous. :P

But those throwing disk thingies (called chukrams) were used quite effectively by armies in India, notably the Aryans.

Not gonna lie; I'm pretty skeptical about their use on the battlefield against the kind of units that show up in Battleground games.

I see them having amazing success against Wolf Packs and Goblin Wolf Riders.

This should make for interesting artwork:
Hippocrates describes them as: "They have no right breasts...for while they are yet babies their mothers make red-hot a bronze instrument constructed for this very purpose and apply it to the right breast and cauterize it, so that its growth is arrested, and all its strength and bulk are diverted to the right shoulder and right arm." (See breast ironing, a current practice in which breast growth is deliberately stunted.)

So much for Xena being accurate - I've seen she has two!  Poser!

I'd like to see some more "fantasy" units. For example winged valkyries or flying calvary or a large/colossal greek creature like a giant snake or manticore or something.

I think giant snakes would be extremely cool (I like snakes).  ;D

Anybody thought about including some sort of anti-air artillery piece in new fantasy factions? I imagine something along the lines of  (8)4/4 (imagine three carts firing 40+ arrows/darts each) and a range of 17.5" with a (-2)0/0 penalty for attaking grounded units. Might have trouble taking out dragons though...
