The Thrakioi Rhomphaiaphoroi are elite mercenary infantry armed with the rhomphaia, a brutal, two-handed weapon with high damage and armour-piercing capabilities. They are well-armoured, with a scale or chainmail coat, greaves, helmet and shield. They may be very slow moving, but they are devastating against all enemy troops, even cavalry.


Historically, these soldiers formed only a small part of Thracian armies, though their role could be decisive. The rhomphaia was a fearsome weapon, capable of hacking off limbs and slicing through heavy armour.


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