    Three way tie between Roman cavalry, Legionary cohort and Spartan Hoplites

    Roman cavalry are cheap heavy cavalry and I can use them o great effect
    Legionary cohort are cheap and cost as much as Early legionary cohorts and they have Roman discipline
    Spartan Hoplites, does my avatar not say it all, if it does not check out my "location"
    If not that, well then, I love the Idealism that the ancient Spartans stood for (before they attempted the oligarchy in Athens) it is a perfect example of what happens when a system of checks and balances are put in place and enforced so that a dictatorship is established and the country is run into the ground owing to the paranoid dictator. I would also like to state that their leaders were mentally strong and did not let the power get to them (except one, there is always a bad egg).

    I have to say Pantodapoi Phalangitai of EB. Partially because they are cheap effective defencive infantry, partially because they are the first ever levy phalanx unit I have ever seen in a TW game that can actually can do anything and partially because they answer with a really amazing accent. I just can' resist repeating it wherever I go

    Venetian Heavy infantry would probably be my favorite unit, at the moment. Still subject to change though, as I'm still on my very first campaign

    From RTW and EB, definently any of the Legionary cohort units, because they are the elite infantry units of the known world. Cretan Archers also come high on the list.

    Actually Billmen from MTW, because they epitomise the English professionalism in the fielding of armies.

    Swiss halberdiers in MTW1 - anti-cav and armour-piercing bonus, quite fast, good morale (unlike standard halbs), silly helmets. What more can you ask?

    Spanish Jinnettes - They eat Almohad Urban Milita for breakfast! With their armour-piercing javelins and excellent speed, they're well-equipped to take out heavy infantry while staying out of harm's way.

    Gazi Infantry - Spurred on by their faith in Allah, these guys charge their enemies with suicidal courage! Great for flanking attacks and chewing up enemy infantry.

    Huscarles - Heavily armed & armoured Vikings with very bad tempers! Virtually indestructible unless ganged up on by multiple units.

    Bedouin Camel Warriors - Cheap, reliable, get a bonus in deserts, and horse units suffer a morale penalty when fighting them. Victory in my Egyptian campaigns would not be possible without them!

    Varangian Guard (MTW until they get fixed in M2TW)-Barbarian Fury+Civilized Discipline= Ownage

    Berserkers(All games)-Those crazy, crazy guys.

    Pretty much all quality pikemen.

    Vardariotai- A little WTF as far as history goes, but just too darn good to pass up.

    Polish Nobles-They just shred and shred with their crazy javelins.

    Eastern Infanty- Men in pink hoodies= humor

    It has to be the Sherwood Archers, but just because they have feathers in their hats. Oh yeah and on a other note, they can also shoot some heavy damage arrows.

    In EB and RTR (both mods for RTW): Anything that has pikes, and missile cavalry.

    In MTW: probably Berber Camels and Mounted Sergeants.
