Remi Mairepos are Belgae heavy cavalry. They are brave, unrelenting, and powerful, being able to ride over opposition, and rout numerically superior enemies.

Description

The Remi were famed horsemen. Brave, unrelenting, and powerful, their cavalry could ride over opposition, and rout numerically superior enemies; their Mairepos (Mar-ep-os; "Great Horses") were able to smash infantry and their armor, shields, and weapons were of good quality, and their skill was unquestionable. They were superior to other Gallic heavy cavalry, but they hailed only from one tribe, and like any cavalry would be vulnerable to longspears and pikes. All the same, properly employed, they could turn a losing situation into a victory.

Historically, the Remi were a feared Belgae tribe. Their cavalry was of great skill compared to that of the Gauls, and they made good account of themselves in all battles where they were present, regardless of the outcome. They acted bravely, and performed many actions that would have been suicidal if not for their training and skill, and probably also their fearsome reputation that would weaken the resolve of their foes.

Usage

This unit is essentially a better version of the Brihentin (Gallic Noble Cavalry), with the same set of weapons and armour, but higher morale and skill. As a "classical" heavy cavalry unit, its main uses are in defeating other cavalry and charging into the flanks of enemy infantry. The excellent melee stats of these horsemen make it possible to defeat some types of cavalry generals in protracted melee, however cataphracts or Hetairoi should be avoided unless you can charge them properly and repeatedly.

Remi Mairepos are the strongest factional cavalry unit available to Celtic factions.
