    I'm playing a game as Bismark and surprising (to me) is that he seems able to purchase military units with Faith.

    I have not played as him before. Is this a unique ability or have I just grabbed some beliefs that enable this? I've been able to buy pagodas, missionaries yadda yadda but not military units with other leaders.

    (Or, possibly, does this happen with every leader and I've never noticed?)

    You should pay more attention to the religious beliefs you pick up. :)

    alternatively, the city could be of another religion, one that that had Holy Warriors.

    Holy Warriors belief allows that city to buy units up to a certain point in the tech tree for faith.

    Drawmeus, thanks for that.

    However, the beliefs I was running are as follows:

    Goddess of Festivals
    Peace Loving
    Monasteries
    Cathedrals.

    None of those provide for purchase of military.

    Make sure that the cities in which you do this do not belong to the faith of another civilization... they will be using THAT religion's follower beliefs. Check the "beliefs" screen and see who has "holy warriors"... that religion is probably present in one of your cities.

    Peacemonger, thanks fr the input. This will have to go down as something I can't work out. I saved the game- I referred to it to answer the above queries and to check I wasn't going nuts.

    This morning I started the game to answer your query and check to see if another belief was present and the answer is no. 6 followers of my own religion (it was the Holy City if that makes a difference).

    Anyway, there was a download this morning prior to my setting up the game and while I can open the game I can no longer buy the military units with faith. So, I don't know if it was a small patch that did a fix but something has happened.

    Holy Warriors allows you to build pre-industrial units with faith. Come to think of it, I haven't tried it out yet, I might try it in my next game and spam a domination game hehe.
