    Too many possibilities with my 4 main factions i use.... I make use of a core consisting of 4-8 units of the same minimal set value and then spending the rest of my money on other units and upgrades as i see fit... as well as packs... (a combi of units in set value for different purposes, for example a 3 pavise crossbows at val 0 armour 2 pack)

    As the Byz, since there are no Pronoiai Allagion in Early, I use:

    Byz Lancer (Gen)
    4 Kataphraktoi
    3 V4 Byz Inf
    4 VG
    3 Archers
    1 Byz Cav

    As Turks (in the desert):

    Ghulam Bodyguard (Gen)
    2 Ghulam Cav
    2 Faris
    4 Nubian Spearmen
    3 AUMs
    2 Murabitin
    2 Trebizonds

    These are fairly well balanced, and I make little variations depending on the florins, whether I am attack or defence, what my teammates bring, terrain, etc.

    GAH

    As this is early, and gunny units are not available, Vanya would have to go with this army setup:

    4 Berber Camels
    4 Bedouin Camels
    4 Dessert Archers
    4 Peasants

    The rationale:
    Berber camels provide good basic harrassment unit. Better than any horsearcher in the game. And they can introduce infidel knights to the Prophet.

    Bedouin camels are the best shock unit and cav unit in the game. Shielded by Allah and armed with the Koran, nothing can defeat these mighty mujjahedin.

    Dessert Archers... well, every army needs something to dabble in after the meal. These "cleanup" units provide cover fire for the camels.

    Peasants. Good, solid, reliable citizens who have risen up and taken to a life of Jihad strike fear in the hearts of the enemy. No christian unit can stand in the face of the purity of faith of the faithfull citizenry of the realm. These soldiers of light shall make the enemy realize their own wickedness.

    With an army like that, its no wonder Vanya never loses MP games
