Having a mercenary company of 1.8 million soldiers sounds a bit heavy. The largests armies around untill late-1800's was a few hundred thousand soldier big and normally mercenary companies would be a few hundred/thousand men big.

Good point. Even Sauron was only a few ten thousand strong.

In ancient times, armies would go from 3000 men to 200 000 men (In Extreme cases, like Alexander The Great's invasion of Persia, his 50 000 against their 250 000)

Mercenary companies in ancient times would never have more then a few thousand men. The population of the Earth wasn't big enough to create million armies back then. (Also seeing how only a small portion of the Earth was discovered by Europeans then)

This is true, but the mass numbers of even mercenary groups will be used to contrast something later on. Don't think of the Hellfire Crusaders as a single group, think of them as an organisation that 'commands' a bunch of groups. One group being The Dogs of War

In other news, Rarity is best pony
