Steppe Levy

Tribal people, called from the vast lands of the steppes to fight.

These nomadic tribespeople come from the vast steppes to the north of the Black and Caspian Seas, and were known variously as Scythians or Saka, and later the western Sarmatians. Light infantry, they were often armed with javelins or medium length spears and used shields covered in animal hide. Such shields could also be scaled with either horn or metal. This type of armour also extended to their clothing at times, with scaled versions of their tunics becoming widespread, especially amongst the steppe nobility. These troops also made extensive use of daggers, straight swords and the fearsome sagaris, a one-handed battle-axe, with both a bladed or hammer-like head and a pick-like point on the reverse for punching through armour. Complimenting their foot archers and cavalry, their role was simply to protect the former from the latter. Far from barbarians, steppe culture, although nomadic, was a rich and diverse one.
