    The peak of popularity of the MTW/M2TW was over a decade ago. There's probably not a lot of us dropping by here now. So good luck on responses you may get.

    I often play one of the Christian factions. I very seldom play the Byzantines. So my opinion is not really an expert opinion. Having said that here's what I would do.

    i would choose Varangian Guards over swordsmen. Usually 6 of them supported by 5 Byzantine Guard Archers. My flanks will be covered by 8 Kataprachtois. And commanded by a general with good commander traits (eg command, dread, etc). Of course you can play with the numbers to your liking and style of play.
