I like this. It's the way I originally intended them to be, to emphasize that these mercs primarily lived outside the Kushite heartland. I'm not qualified to comment on how this affects balance though, although it seems similar enough to the Roman military camp.

Good to know!
The Roman army camp can be built in neutral and enemy territory (but not in own or allied); with this patch the Blemmye camp and Nuba village can be built in own and neutral territory (but not in enemy or allied), as is already the case for the Egyptian mercenary camp.
Furthermore, other factions that capture an Roman or Egyptian camp can typically train some of their own units there, as is the case with most structures, but the Blemmye and Nuba camps are quite useless to others. D2536 allows anyone to train Blemmye and Nuba at their respective camps, though only Kush can build the structures.
