Interesting, would be great if we could send our men inside these buildings to guard them :D .. So we can see our men as guards standing inside, or on the steps...so in battle, they fight for supremacy of buildings before destroying them or capturing them

A nice idea, much better than seeing your guys destroy buildings by hiting them with their swords until it catches fire (somewhow).

That would indeed be awesome, but probably outside our manpower capabilities.

Thought it was a Fire Temple until I saw the dragon symbols of Marduk. Looks great.

Could be either/or. We kind of mixed Persian and Babylonian (and Assyrian) elements throughout the building set. The Persian Empire was quite cosmopolitan.

Oh yes. Hope that also gets shown through their army, from the Saka proto cataphracts of the north east to the armored Syrian bowmen of the west.

They receive a proto-cataphract in the form of the "Bactrian Heavy Lancer" (Persian: Bakhtrish Asabara or "Bactrian Cavalry"). The rider is heavily armored, but the horse is not. I hope it meets your approval. :) Their archers are Sogdian, not Syrian, but the Elite Sogdian Archer is armored (bronze scale).
