    Well that was a surprise choice to reveal!

    An early military-focused Civ, very reminiscent of Civ 5's Huns. Leader looks great. And she doesn't like surprises... unless she's the one administering them :p

    Waiting for someone to post it and then I see three in the same minute!

    Interesting decision, can't say I know much about Scythia. Sounds fun, but I doubt I'll play them as I'm not much of a military player.

    Am I being forgetful, or is this the first new unique improvement we've seen? Might be completely wrong about that.

    They build two units instead of one, when constructing light cavalry or their UU horse archers.
    Their UU doesn't require horse resource either. Nice.
    I like them already. :)

    Can one "Declare War" that's not a "Declare Surprise War"?
    So, as to not anger them?

    Nope, it's the third.

    France gets Chateaus, Egypt gets Sphinxes.

    But this is the first time they bothered hinting their agendas, I believe Scythia does not like people who declare Surprise Wars.

    Chateaus and Sphinxes and Great Walls we've already seen.

    Kurgans look pretty good. Horse Archers that don't require a horse resource. weird but terrifying.

    Did I understand that right that the player gets 2 horse archers each time they build the unique horse archer unit?

    Yeah. But also they get two light cavalry any time they build light cavalry.

    Is it me, or Tomyris has the worst animations of all leaders? Looks like stop motion clay animation. Also, her hand clips through the sword in the begining. I'm not really impressed :(

    Probably no mongols since they feel similar. Horse warmonger with faith bonus.

    Also is it "Sithia" or "Skithia?" I've always heard the latter.

    So definitely confirmed as the spiritual replacement of the Mongols - even if Mongols are later released as DLC, it will be interesting to see what traits they would have, since Scythia seems so Mongol-y.

    I believe their Saka Horse Archers replace Heavy Chariots - since they don't require Horses and the Horsemen are in place.

    Also her agenda is fitting --- but wouldn't any civ hate you for surprise declarations of war against them? (or does she hate ANY surprise declarations of war against ANYONE?)
