Any suggestions? If you are up against them, what troop do you wish to have and which tactic would you use?

Max out your light infantry and screen your medium and heavy inf. Advance as fast as possible. Remember your light inf only has one job and that is to protect your medium and heavy inf from being shot. You should win most of the time.

I find them easy to overrun with Heavy Infantry/Cavalry. Indians are only deadly to a Horse Archer army.

Let your army forward and get into close combat with them,as quickly as you can,those massed archers are not good at close combat.If you have played and won the battle of hydaspes(in the epic battles,but you need to buy the immortal fire dlc first)as macedonian,then I'm sure you'll know how to deal with indian archers.

There is also a nice battle against Indians in the Seleucos Campaign; they were soon mincemeat. :lol:
