The rank and file of the Getai professional troops, these men are well-adapted to dense forested areas and one of the most reliable and effective units in the Getic army.

Description

These troops were raised once the Getic state reached a strong level of organization. The rank and file of the Getic professional troops, these men are well adapted to dense forested areas, thus their cohesion does not suffer from fighting in rough terrain when in close formation. These warriors wear mail shirts, armguards, and Phrygian helmets over their traditional wool shirts and baggy trousers, befitting their status as professionals. They are also armed with spears, large oval shields and the sica. They are best employed to hold the line where the fighting will be the fiercest. Nevertheless, after discarding their spears, their small sicae and large oval shields still allow them to perform a similar role on the battlefield as that of the Roman legionnaires, spreading in loose lines for close-combat and using their short curved swords for fast thrusts from behind their large shields.

Historically, the Thorakitai Stratiotai were assembled when the Getic kings decided they had enough strength to counter the Tarabostes' ambitions. Professional troops, they garrisoned the most important dava, or fortifications, thus securing the vital strategic points the king needed to impose his authority. Well-armed and armored they served as the nucleus for the Getic infantry on the battlefield.

Usage

The heaviest infantry available to the Getai. These men, once well positioned and in defense mode can hold the line against the heaviest infantry or the elite infantry that the other factions can muster. Their mail shirts and large shields will make them immune to missile attacks from the front They can also attack tired and weakened infantry with their sicas. As such, these troops are vital for a late-Getic campaign against the phalanxes of the Greek factions, the Sweboz, and Romans.

The Getai can recruit this unit after the building of a level 4 MIC.
