Army ME: 100

The ability of the Regular C-in-C to swap with whichever Irregular sub is closer
gives the army a powerful PIP swapping option for less than the cost of three
regular generals, without presenting a lowest PIP command target. Putting the
C-in-C in charge of the PIP efficient all regular pike command facilitates this
as it can usually get by on a low PIP score. I should say this command structure
was pioneered at our club in Dublin by Rob Brennan, so my thanks to him for
alerting me to the idea.

The high ME count also makes this a very forgiving army in terms of its ability
to both absorb losses and swamp opponents, both of which suit my style of play.
It also has a good mix of troop types, which makes it a good all-rounder, while
the 3:3:3:1 structure is also sound.

On the minus side, it has a lot of low quality troops and while (I) is a lot
better in DBMM than it used to be, it can be sensitive against the wrong kind of
opponents - Bw (S) being a classic example.

DBMM v1

Mithridaric Pontic, 500AP, DBM Lists by Tony Dennis

The Pontic host was based on two regular commands (mercenary Greek

generals) and an Armenian ally. The Greek C-in-C commanded the Pontic

Cv(O), LH(O) and Rhoxolani Kn(F). Four scythed chariots completed his

command. The second command was based on the phalanx. We allowed a

much larger phalanx than the current DBM list recommends, we allowed

16 Brazen shield Pk(O) and 16 Slave Pk(I). These were supported by 12

Ax(S), 4 Bw(I) and 4 Bastarnae Bd(F).  The Armenian command consisted

of the usual Kn(X), LH(F) and Bw(I).
