Strategy Edit

They make excellent raiders because their attributes make them very resistant to ranged attacks, and they can defeat most archers easily. They also have a small bonus against Throwing Axemen, but this bonus is mitigated by their low hack armor, which makes anything other than true archers very dangerous, especially cavalry that can outrun them. In the Classical Age they are also important as they are the only way for the Atlanteans to counter archers in that age. Unlike the Norse and Greeks they cannot train true cavalry until the Heroic Age, thus Turma fulfill the anti-archer role for the Classical Age but are essentially obsolete or relegated to a support role by the Heroic Age.


The swift, front-armored Atlantean Turma is exceptionally good against archers such as the Toxotes and Arcus, but is weak against all other units.

The training of the Atlantean Turma was very focused and dangerous, requiring years to perfect. Both horse and rider had to be athletic, tough, and fast. A veteran Turma could kill a bird in flight with a well-aimed javelin throw. The horses, descended from wild Atlantean stock, were no less exceptional. These horses were so prized that capturing even one from the Atlanteans in battle was considered great good fortune - even if the battle was lost. Many great bloodlines were founded in other regions by such captured Atlantean stock.
