Hey. I'm wondering if anyone knows good strats for the Argus. The most peculiar Myth unit in AoM is relatively fast, has great armor and the fastest reloading instant kill attack. Guardian of Io and Eyes of Atlas also give them huge LOS.
I was wondering if anyone has ever used Arguses (Argi? Arges?) as (part of) a raiding force, killing vils and lone units and retreating before a large army arrives, possibly dropping Implode at an opportune location.

Their great potential often gets lost in large armies, my Argi usually only manage to dissolve a single Elephant or Camel before getting creamed by Priests or massed archers...

I have massed them agianst the computer but their hitpoints suck ass like nothing else. Bellerophon alone ate 7 of them with my army attacking him, my argus running for their lives and he didn't even lose half of his life before he obliterated them. They need a bust in hitpoints!

Yes. Actually I can't remember the last time I made an Argus. I play Gaia and ALWAYS go Atlas.

argus isn't good for raiding because it takes up too much pop space

Argus are good for defending lone TCs from siege myth units like Behemoth, Scarab and Collosus. You can park one at every TC that you feel could be attacked while your army is fighting in other place.
