Libyan Amazons

Description
This mod adds a unit of African female archers to the Carthaginian roster. They were inspired by Greek traditions of Amazon-like female warriors residing in Libya (which for them meant all of the African continent west of the Nile Valley). The classical historian Diodoros Siculus provides a rather fanciful account on how the Libyan Amazons, under the leadership of Queen Myrina, once carved out a vast empire straddling northern Africa and the Middle East, reaching as far north as Asia Minor (modern Turkey). Whether or not such matriarchal warrior societies ever existed in Wets Africa during the Greco-Roman time frame, we do know that the West African region would produce a number of female warriors in later ages, most famously the Mino of Dahomey.

I swear, every mod you make where you correct how these people actually looked like at the time, there are a million people calling it racist. I wish people would stop commenting on things that they haven't researched thoroughly. Great mod.

I have to laugh at the racial stuff below me.. north africa is the cradel of civilization, it is from there man began and spread to all corners of the earth. Some stayed (berbers) Some returned after being defeated by israel (Punics) Others migrated with persia (The Arabic people) And the Aetheopians stayed to the sothern parts of africa, aswell as mixing in with the other ethnicities. I dont think half the people realize how many diffrent ethnicities there really are, and only the Punics and Berbers are no longer in existance, after being nearly annihalated by the romans then interbreeding with the persians. Although i dont find this mod offencive or uneducated.. there is a great neeed for aetheopian units in carthage, aswell as females. So i have no problem with it. I wish there were more colored units or mixed ones.

Why have you made them all black, The libyans where described in diffrent ways.
According to Herodotus most of the libyans wher fair skinned and had some blonde people among them. And he mentioned Some Aetiopia(black people) living in the southern parts of libya. And the ancient egypiants aslo described the Meshwesh and the other libyan tribes as pale people with tatoos and bleu eyes.

Atleast mix them up, because this is just Racist.
I as a Amazigh/african feel offended, whe are not of 1 color we are of many we are legion.

Historically Libya was black, like most of Africa- even north Africa and Egypt- good for bringing some much diversity in the game!

It'd be real cool if you addded them to all african factions.
