The Thrakioi Prodromoi are an elite light cavalry unit. However they are different from other light cavalry in that they are actually well-armoured because of their elaborate helmets and their scale tunics or reinforced scale linothorakes. This, and their increased attack and health, allows them to perform well in a melee in addition to skirmishing. Overall this makes them a versatile and outstanding unit. Of course, this also means that they are more expensive, but as one of the best light cavalry units available, they are really worth the cost.


Historically, the Thrakioi Prodromoi were lower Thracian nobles. They distinguished themselves in many battles in the service of many rulers, whether they were Thracian, Macedonian or Hellenic.


The Thrakioi Prodromoi are trained in batch with other Thracian mercenaries. Each batch provides 1 Thrakioi Prodromoi, 2 Thrakioi Rhomphaiaphoroi and 2 Thrakioi Peltastai.
