Hi! 

First of all thanks for the amazing mod and the hard work put into it! 

Will King David be a hero in this faction?

Also will there be a seperate Israel faction for the remaining IsraelI tribes? 

 

You're welcome! 

The plan at the moment is for the Israelites to be represented by a single faction called the Hebrews; the timeframe will mainly cover the United Monarchy period, so yes, King David is a planned hero.  If a second Hebrew-related faction were depicted, it would cover the northern kingdom of Israel from the Divided era.

Thanks for the reply, I see

I like a the mix of units and the back ground.
Can I suggest when it comes to creating dedicated units for this you could create the following: 
A royal archer and shield barer. That shows up in the bible often and in the other books. A heavy archer that is visually two men moving together; one with a big shield and one with a good bow and both with fine looking armour. 

A prophet unit trained and spawned from a house might be fun. High building capture capacity. No melee attack but a push/ confuse attack [blinding the enemy] manifested as a few almost invisible no damage blocking units spawned near him when a foe is in range. Good arrow armour, good view range. 

Night raiders: Abraham did night commando a raid, so did Samson, Gideon & David. A unit with good stealth but very low view range; its dark (no day night cycle needed). Good first attack and a kitting retreat. Strike fall back fast, stop & strike again when they reach you. Like horse kitting. If stealth is not available add fast burst speed. Good armour verses arrows because its dark. Low view range and stealth means you may lose the foe or he may lose you. 

Some models need the round chest shield that doubled as a griddle iron for cooking flat bread.
