I really admire the design of the Inca civilization, the units and the architecture, which were very well done, representing very well, what the Inca civilization was like (except for the towncenter, which is totally asymmetrical and dissonant, like the towncenter of the Haudenossaunee, and even the of the Aztecs, as the Inca towncenter tries to mix an ushnu - ritual platform, usually with a place for an Inca throne at the top - with a side house with a fountain). But the Inca maceman, who is actually a kind of chimu nobleman, besides not being a common type in the Inca army, is a beautiful unit, but only that, with little use, if nothing is changed in its design. Even more, there were Inca warriors with huactanas, similar to the German godendag, which could have a better design compared to an empire’s warrior (the maceman’s apples are even rare in the Inca empire, but the huactanas were known, we have many preserved of that model), and if they wanted to represent an elite Inca unit, they could use halberds (the only mention of the Inca halberd belongs to the explorer, who does not use the correct mascaypacha, which was made of cloth, with some gold threads, and was not a square gold sun in a golden crown used in theatrical performances of the intiraymi, but was attached to a llautu, made of long strips of cloth wrapped around the forehead). The Inca halberd would carry a bronze halberd, like the explorer’s, and could be a well-armored halberder, as Inca nobles wore effective and light armor, of hardened and compressed cotton layers, glued and sewn, with leather breastplates. llama, or of metals (purapura). Halberds perhaps with a little less attack or defense compared to Europeans (they had bronze halberds), but much faster, would be an interesting unit. It could be argued that it would be a rare unit in the Inca army, but by the representations of the time, it didn’t seem all that rare. What seems much rarer is a Chimu nobleman in the Inca army. But I understand that the developers were excited to introduce units that showcase the diversity of the empire, I would be excited too! They could at least speed up the unit, or, as the Incas lack atlatls (cumana), this being a very common weapon of the Chimu empire and the Peruvian coast, it could be an added attack on this noble Chimu (the Chinese Immortals, from Age of Mythology, they could choose whether they would fight as yeomen or swordsmen, it could be something similar… They could use atlatls to attack from a distance, if you selected this attack for the Maceman, being a good attack against cavalry, and when necessary, one could choose to use the mace.
