Lo'hamim Azzilim are armored in quality padded armour, tough leather shields and armed with spears. These men can be relied on to hold their own against all but the best heavy infantry.
This tough, heavily armored infantry is the cream of Southern Arabian nobility and despite the land’s reputation for the production of aromatics these are not perfume wearing effeminates who can be easily brushed aside. Armored in good quality chain, tough leather shields and armed with thin but sturdy swords these men can be relied on to hold their own against all but the best heavy infantry.
Historically, the wealthy of elite of the great cities of Southern Arabia went to war clad in heavy armor and provided the backbone of the Khamis (national troops) that a city called upon in time of war. Thier sturdy chain armor was made of either bronze or iron, with bronze being more common as both copper and scorching sun were common in Arabia. The poets of later day Arabia were at their most elegant when describing the qualities of a fine suit of mail often saying that such a coat will ripple like a pool blown by wind and glitter like lightning. The thin and supple sword and tough camel hide shield, while not nearly so highly praised in poetry, are equally formidable parts of their arsenal.
These elite spearmen can hold the line far longer compared to the other light spearmen the Saba can recruit due to their good armor and disciplined formation but they suffer from having a small unit size.
Best use them either to reinforce the battleline or use them as reserve infantry just in case. While they are strong elite spearmen, they are no match for the heavy infantry of the Hellenic Factions.
