Wow been waiting for such a long time for a mod like this. Assuming you will show the Hypastis as shield and spear? Make sure u include the arogonians as bad *** skirmishes and besides the obvious companion cav you include the Thessalian cav which were amazing just below the calories mpanionan cav

So not a overhaul mod but a faction reskin?

If you're going to build a Persian army, don't refer to Alexander's film. The persians in the movie are a mess in history.

For you, I brought some illustrations of the Osprey Warrior book series.
The other series of Osprey Warrior books are not very reliable, but I can tell you that the illustrations in this book are historically the most accurate.

And I brought some pictures of other illustrations and figures for you.

persian infantry
1 persian archer
( He appears to be a high-ranking archer, given his colorful and expensive tunic.)
2 persian kardakar(hoplite)
( After losing the Persian War, the Persians gradually changed their military equipment to the Greek style. he wear a red tunic, Greek armor and a median hood. )
3 satrapal infantry man
(t is an infantryman who appears to be from the Persian satrapal army. )

There's one thing you need to know.
The Sparabara, which had been at the forefront of the Persian War since the Persian War, were gradually replaced by kardakars after the Persian War.
And by Alexander's time, only Persian kardakars remained on the front line.

( This flag holder holds the Persian imperial symbol. He must have a high rank because he was dressed in a color similar to the king's. )

royal immortals hazarapatis(commander of the thousand man)
(The king's guards and his aides are said to have dressed in the same color as the king. )

persian heavy cavalry

(The Persian heavy cavalry became thicker and heavier after the Persian War.
The horse were wrapped in horse-armour from the skitai. And the rider wore heavy body armor and arm armor and wore Greek helmets and kyndis.

They were specialized in breaking through the sides of the enemy line or breaking down weak phalanx.)

The reason why many Persian soldiers use Greek equipment in the picture is that many of them have been Greekized since the Persian War.
After the Persian War, a civil war broke out in Persia, and many Hoplite mercenaries moved to Persia. (This is because Persian satraps paid a high price. )
In the Persian satraps' army, the Hoplites were increasingly high. And the Persian army also came to be the same as the Hoplites.
