    The Vardariotai are drawn mainly from the Magyars that settled in the Vardar Valley, and their descendents. Disciplined and highly trained, the Vardariotai are elite horse archers. They wear light mail or brigandine armour and fire a powerful composite bow from horseback. Able to relentlessly pepper their enemies with arrows and use their mobility to stay out of trouble.


    Simply put it, Vardariotai are the best missile cavalry unit available to the Byzantine Empire. They have no equal in terms of both missile and melee stats. While they do cost a heavy 200 florins per turn to maintain, they are prove their worth in giving the player a wide rang of tactical choices. The Vardariotai can also stand up against the elite missile cavalry that the Eastern factions such as the Turks, Egypt and Russia can field, though the outcome can vary from situation to situation. They do not, however, equal the missile cavalry that the Mongols can field and so, should not enter a missile standoff against them. Overall, an excellent missile cavalry unit, which provide the player with a rather potent mobile missile force.
