Sorry to sound like a complete idiot, but any ideas on where Peltasts are good? Haven't got the full game, just the demo, so I haven't been able to test them. It says their strengths are unknown, so I find it to be an interesting unit, and sound like an anti archer/infantry unit. Also would like to know what units are good when paired with them, and the different circumstances they excel in i.e: low resources, enemy pumping a certain unit etc. Thanks in advance!

Sorry to tell you this, but there are no spear throwers. You can use them in custom scenarios but not in regular multiplayer or singleplayer. I don't even think they are in the campaigns, but if you know how to use the editor you could play with them a bit.

Peltasts are really good against chariots and war elephants if you happen to be playing Rome: Total War. (joke)

Typical Chonaman Calenae, you mentioned that you couldn't use them in the demo. I'm assuming that means you didn't have the game, which begs a question. Are you planning on getting it?

Haven't really been able to get my Peltasts to work against their Elephants, I'll keep trying. By the way, nice joke Chonaman, really brightened my day!

Edit: Yes, I am planning on getting the game some time, really enjoy the demo, not sure when I'll get it though.

There are Greek javalin throwers in the editor. They aren't in a regular game, but can be added to maps.
