Suggestion for Zhou, Qin, Han...

Caesar started with infantry... but it's still definitely not enough! Where are all the chariots? cavalry? artillery? Need to implement and diversificate Xiung-nu and chinese archers, heavy infantries...

I might look at the HaT Huns rather than Mongols for nomads of this period.

of course, kaiphranos, but if you want differentiate a little you will need something other for steppe riders like Wuhuans and Xianbei, for example (wich were of proto-mongolic ethnicity)

Indeed, we need far more Chinese sets! the info is there for once, there is plenty of artworks and archaelogical findings.

Only Italeri has made Chinese Cavalry, but of course only good for a certain period.

With some conversions, a few Mongols could be used, but of course not ideal.

It seems for Caesar is not very profitable to make cavalries, they have made very few.
