This mod adds a new unit: the Cretan Mercenary.
This is a greek mercenary archer with an iron armor and a little shield. This unit can also attack in short range with his sword (putting his bow on his back). The unit choose automatically how to attack.
Greeks armies made a large use of mercenary (especially in Alexander's period). The Cretan Mercenaries are specialized in the use of bow, not much used by other greek soldiers.

It's not bad, but not so much of a unique texture though. I still think that the original texture of myrmidon is way better.
The texture could also apply to hoplite model if you wanna make it more interesting.

Great unit addition; looks great, well balanced, and very useful.
Well done, thanks for posting this. I can never have enough Greek (and/or Roman) units in this game.
