Numidia General's Bodyguard.

Numidia is an interesting faction with strong light troops and good light cavalry. They are strong in the early game. They get an excellent early skirmisher cavalry unit and along with medium cavalry support, however they have no late game heavy cavalry except for Generals Bodyguard. They get missile troops like Javelinmen and Archers before other factions, giving them an advantage with range. Their infantry is interesting, they get a good Spear unit and an imitation Legionary unit that is about as good as Principes. It is not the best infantry selection but it is decent enough. Numidia is sort of like barbarian factions in that their early roster is good but late game they will have trouble against the Romans.
