So...am i the only person who won't start this army purely because the archers are all universally left-handed? I have nothing against southpaws, but there's also nothing in the fluff that states that the Priest Kings mandated all southpaws to serve as his archers...

Maybe it was a fad to shoot left handed, Maybe since all the arrows are blessed yo hit, they do it just to look cool. Heck if I always hit I'd bend over and shoot between my legs.

It's a shame the Ushabti aren't lefties as well.

if you hold a bow in your left hand you are a right handed bowmen. The right hand holds the bowstring and you then sight with the right eye, which will be your dominant eye.

This, the hand you shoot with has nothing to do with your dominant hand, it has everything to do with your dominant eye. An archer will sight down the arrow from the eye that corresponds to the hand holding the arrow, not the hand holding the bow.

It seems that it may have been a Khemrian racial trait to be left eye dominant.
