I have a quick question about peltast equipment; specifically, if the three javelin limit applies to them as well. With their missile rating at 4, I feel like that would severely hamper their effectiveness. We've played a few games (Olympus vs Aegyptus) with the unit capped at three shots and the peltasts tend to under perform.
Alternatively, I could misinterpret their role; rather than being a dedicated missile unit, are they meant to close in, throw javelins, and then get in combat? If so, then I'm just not using them correctly.
