    Carthage expansion from 646 AUC to 679 AUC based on Du Silence two last posts ? What am i missing ?
    In 646 AUC, Carthage is in her starting position acording to the map. In 679 AUC it holds the entire western Europe. So...33 years.

    Update on my Averni campaign (H/H, 1 Turn). The Scythians invade Noreia.



    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    1st update:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read:

    In the early years Brennos expanded our territory to include almost all of Gaul. In the following decade there was relative peace while his heirs consolidated
    our rule and improved our settlements. Our current leader Euoiurix is the grandson of Brennos and a great warrior. He spent his youth defending our borders
    against the Massalian Greeks. He commands the great host of The Averni, the most noble of all the Gallic tribes.


    image hosting

    In 605AUC Noreia rebelled against its Roman occupiers and declared allegiance to our leader. Though Noreia is far to the east of our lands their call for help
    could not go unheeded. Euoiurix sent reinforcements led by his nephew Reburros to bolster Noreia's defences against the inevitable Roman rebuttal. In 610AUC
    the Romans reached the walls of Noreia and laid seige. Surprising the Romans, Reburros sallied forth and attacked, crushing the arrogant foe.

    The Romans will have learnt from this defeat and they will be back, of this we are sure. Even now we are recruiting throughout Gaul to help our brothers in
    Noreia. However the mighty Cimbri, Teutonic warlords of the north, control the lands between Gaul and our new city. It may be difficult to transport troops across
    their borders without offense. The survival of Noreia relies much on the leadership of Reburros, only 20 years old and far from home. Of course, there are ways
    of hurting the Romans to the south. If we were to take Massalia we could launch raids across the alps right into the Italian heartland, even into Rome itself.


    2nd update:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    We expected the Romans to return to Noreia and they did. In force. After a short siege they attacked the city walls in 615AUC. It was a long and bloody battle
    but Reburros and his troops won the day. When the battle was almost over Reburros and his guard struck out from the city gates and caught the Roman general
    Vibius Atius Rufus off guard, killing him where he stood.

    The battle was hard won and Reburros lost many men. When yet another legion under the command of Spurius Terentius Varro laid siege it did not look hopeful
    for Noreia. Seeing the danger, Euoiurix took the Averni nobles and raced towards the city. He arrived just in time to secure victory over the enemy.

    During this time more and more reinforcements had slowly been making their way to Noreia from Gaul. Euoiurix had also been recruiting from the surrounding
    lands and in 618AUC he had enough men to challenge a wayward Roman legion. The legion was no match for Euoiurix, fighting as they were in dense forest.


    image upload


    image hosting adult

    This turned out to be a crucial battle in the fight for Noreia. It weakened the besieging forces and allowed Euoiurix and Reburros to gain the upper hand for
    the first time since hostilities began. They took advantage of this and booted the Romans out.

    adult image hosting

    It was to be a fitting end for Euoiurix. He died in 619AUC, honoured as a hero and champion of The Averni. Reburros became the new leader of our people
    and set about a series of military reforms. Fighting the Romans had taken its toll on our finances and yet more troops needed to be raised to defend Noreia
    from future attacks. All unnecessary forces in the west were either moved east or disbanded. Reburros also set about recruiting a raiding army to inflict
    retribution on the Romans. It was to be commanded by his brother Nennicos.


    upload images

    The year is now 625AUC. The Romans have not dared to attack Noreia again and, if they are so foolish, they will find a nasty surprise waiting in the dark forest.
    The Volcae Axemen are ferocious warriors, capable of hacking through even Roman armour. They are backed up by fearsome Naked Fanatics and Medium Cavalry.


    hosting images

    One thing we are concerned about is the war between our neighbouring tribes the Belgae and Cimbri. The Cimbri attacked first and, having already
    united Germania, are in a strong position. If the Belgae are to lose this war we will have a temperamental and unpredictable foe on our
    northern borders. Therefore we have sent generous aid to our ancient brothers. Only time will tell if it will be enough or if we are forced to face the Cimbri
    ourselves. Noreia would be in a very precarious position indeed if it were completely cut off from Gaul with enemies on both fronts.

    3rd update:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Nennicos waited on the border until the time was right, then launched the raid on Carnuntum. Our spies opened the gates in the dead of night and the
    Volcae Axemen and Fanatics tore through the city, razing it to the ground.

    At the same time Aneunicno of Vienna took a light ambush force north into Roman occupied territory and destroyed three legions (retraining in Noreia
    between battles). In the third battle most of our archers were killed by the enemy cavalry and were later to be replaced by young Averni Nobles
    eager to prove themselves in battle.

    After reinforcing, Aneunicno took up a defensive position on the border to Carnuntum, holding the pass against Gnaeus Flaminius Nepos.

    During these years Reburros held the bridge north of Noreia against three legions. In 634AUC Eburonum rebelled against the Romans and declared
    their independence, further weakening Roman power north of the Alps.

    With Aneunicno defending our only border with Roman territory, Nennico embarked on a daring mission to raid Roman settlements, starting with Segestica.
    He then moved east to sack Singidun, moving north to take Aquincum before making for Noreia.

    Nennicos had evaded the Roman forces during this time, keeping to the woods and staying one step ahead of the Roman commanders thanks to his spies.
    However by 639AUC Roman forces had tracked him to Aquincum. Taking the initiative, Nennicos attacked first and won the day.

    Bolstered by this victory, he moved west to intercept Roman reinforcements before engaging the legions stationed at Carnuntum.

    The year is now 645AUC. The Romans have not returned to Noreia. Our forces guard the deep woods and prepare for another attack. Our allies Scythia have
    taken Eburonum and the people of Aquincum have rebelled against their Roman occupiers. Our spies report that the Greeks have sent an army to take
    the settlement. They are already at war with Scythia.

    The Belgae are faring well against the Cimbri while the Gallaeci are hard pressed by Carthage. We have sent the Gallaeci the same generous aid as we once sent the Belgae.


    4th update:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    In 651 Reburros died and Senorix, son of Euoiurix, became our leader.

    Between 645 and 655 The Romans made some tentative incursions into Noreia but in 657 they attacked in force. Comagos, son of Nennicos, defended
    the border.

    Ateano, son of Reburros, moved to defend our border.

    In 659 Comagos crushed the Roman forces in Carnuntum, killing their commanders Vispanius and Norbanus. The time was ripe for a punitive raid on
    the Roman peninsula. Ateano led our forces south.

    In the winter of 661 Comagos attacked the Roman forces at Segesitica. He first launched a night raid on the legion led by Manius Cassius Hemina but the general
    escaped with most of his cavalry. Instead of pursuing the cowards, Comagos laid siege to the city and forced them to come to him.

    By 662 Rome had mustered troops for a counter attack but Ateano held his ground. In 663 Senorix died and Ateano became leader of The Averni. He moved
    on Patavium, defeating the enemy, but was soon cornered outside Bononia.

    Though outnumbered, Ateano bravely chose to stand and fight. He positioned his warriors against a rocky outcrop near the city while his slingers and
    cavalry hid in the forest.

    However, the Roman scouts discovered the ambush and routed our slingers. The nobles fought valiantly but were heavily outnumbered by enemy cavalry. It was
    left to Ateano and his champions, trapped against the cliff and battered by waves of Roman troops. Our warriors fought like lions and won the day, but only just.
    Ateano was killed in the battle.


    adult upload image

    Our remaining warriors made their way back to Noreia with Aneunicno and Comagos forming a rear guard against pursuing Roman forces. The venture had
    weakened Rome considerably but at great cost. Our leader had been killed and we lost many experienced warriors. Ateano provided an example
    of Averni bravery but there were many lessons to be learned from his death. He died without an heir and the line of succession passed firmly to Gergovia.
    Borodatos, son of Senorix, was crowned King Of Gaul while the descendants of Reburros and Nennicos became Princes Of Noreia.


    free image hosting

    The year is now 665AUC. Our allies are doing well. The Belgae have gained the upper hand in their war against the Cimbri and the Gallaeci have retaken
    northern Iberia from Carthage. Scythia now control eastern Europe and form a powerful barrier between Rome and Noreia. They are still at war with Greece
    while Rome and Sparta are now enemies.

    It is time for a change in strategy. Noreia is well protected, both by distance and her experienced warriors. Newly crowned Borodatos is keen to lead
    the Averni to greater glory and casts his eyes on our long time enemies to the south. The Greeks have ever raided our lands and rejected all peace terms.
    They will fall first. Then there is small matter of revenge. Ateano will not be forgotten.


    5th update:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    By 670AUC Borodatos had defeated the Greeks in southern Gaul, taking Nemausus and Massalia. Three years later, a large Roman force laid siege to
    Massalia. Borodatos sallied forth and crushed the enemy.

    He then set about making preparations and retraining his army for the invasion of Rome. By 676AUC the pieces were in place. Borodatos moved east
    across the Alps while Comagos took the elite Volcae force south from Noreia to intercept Roman troops. He was backed up by an ambush force under Setubogios
    Of Matisco. Together Comagos and Setubogios held off the Roman legions in Illyria, leaving Borodatos to liberate Taurasia, Mediolanon and Genoa.

    By 679AUC Borodatos had reached Arretrium and laid siege. Comagos was on his way south, after taking Patavium and Bononia. Borodatos
    defeated a Roman attack and Comagos sacked the settlement of Ariminium.

    In 680AUC the combined forces reached Rome and laid siege. In 682AUC the Romans attempted to break the siege but were defeated. After sacking the
    city, Borodatos and Comagos took their depleted armies and marched home in victory.

    The year is now 685AUC. Rome has been weakened yet again by our legendary warriors and Gaul prospers under its great king Borodatos. Noreia
    also now prospers as a great trade centre with no fear of attack from Rome, or anyone else. In the east Sparta and Scythia control vast swathes of territory
    while our allies the Belgae and Gallaeci hold their own against pressure from the Cimbri and Carthage respectively.

    6th update:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    In 690AUC Borodatos died and his son Alcios became King. His reign has thus far been peaceful and prosperous.


    upload picture

    In the same year Gaestorix Of Aturius arrived in Italy to defend the free towns of the north from a resurgent Rome. Over the next five years he defeated many
    Roman incursions before returning to Gaul to retrain.


    photo upload











    However on his return to Italy in 697AUC disaster struck. Gaestorix and most of his men were wiped out by a violent earthquake outside Taurasia and the
    defence of the free towns was abandoned.



    There was also a new enemy from the east to consider. The Scythians were so foolish as to launch a raid on Noreia. Comagos easily defeated the two
    offending Scythian armies but such an insult could not go unpunished.









    In 694AUC Alcios led a punitive raid on the occupied towns of Carnuntum and Eborunum, halting the Scythian advance. In the following years Comagos
    and Setubogios remained in enemy territory ambushing Scythian reinforcements and defeating their attempts at retaking Eborunum. Eventually Scythia
    sued for peace and, with Rome getting stronger every season, we accepted.



    The year is now 715AUC. Our nation has been at peace for two decades but our enemies grow strong.


    upload photo

    In the north the Belgae find it ever more difficult to resist the warlike Cimbri and in the south mighty Carthage have become the most powerful empire in
    the world. We cannot rely on the Gallaeci to hold them off for long. However, our southern defences are strong and we will not easily succumb to the armies
    of Carthage.



    Rome has unified Italy once more and has even expanded east to take Carnuntum. They now, along with Scythia, amass troops close
    to the borders of Noreia. The city is well defended but a combined Roman and Scythian invasion would test greatly those defences.



    Our King Alcios is now 55 years old. The last of an illustrious line which dates back to Brennos, Alcios is seriously ill and has no heirs. When he dies the Druids
    will chose a new leader for the Averni, one to lead us through the trying times ahead.





    7th update:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    In 715AUC the Scythians invaded Noreia in force. Setubogios Of Matisco was the first to challenge the foe.







    After defeating the Scythian vanguard he took up a defensive position on the river crossing, leaving Suadugenos Of Lemonum to continue the assault.









    Suadugenos was able to push the invaders back but took great losses in doing so. He returned to Noreia while Setubogios defended the river crossing
    from Saurmag the Scythian warlord.





    In the summer of 716AUC our forces were exhausted and recovering in Noreia. There was to be no let up from the Scythian hordes. Orbitalos Of Mosa
    attempted to hold the river crossing with an Illyrian force but was defeated by Spargapeithhs. Orbitalos died in a desperate and noble attempt to turn
    the battle but his luck did not hold and the Illyrians fled.





    It was left to Couxollios Of Cenebaum to hold back the invaders while our forces retrained. This he did ably and, after two defeats, the Scythians
    were wary of crossing our borders again.







    As the Scythians hesitated in their invasion, the Romans thought they saw an opportunity and sent a legion under the command of Marcus Flaminus Nepos
    to attack Noreia. They were stopped decisively by Suadugenos and his spearmen.





    By 718AUC reinforcements from Gaul had arrived. Villaorix Of Arausio led the Royal Guard while our King was indisposed with grave illness. He successfully
    defended the river crossing against yet another Scythian assault.





    By now the Scythians were reduced to small scale incursions, which our forces were able to hold off with ease, but in the winter of 719AUC Suadogenos
    was defeated by a large Scythian force at the river crossing. His army was destroyed and he died in the battle. However, he was able to inflict enough
    damage on the invaders that they retreated after the battle.





    In the years that followed both Rome and Scythia made some tentative raids on Noreia but they were all resoundly defeated. By the winter of 723AUC the time had
    come to strike out at our aggressors.



    Villaorix led the assault on Eborunum with Setubogios forming a rearguard with his ambush force. Couxollios took up a position to the west of the city,
    waiting for an opportunity to strike with the elite Volcae force.

    Villaorix struck first, attacking the Scythian force north of Eborunum. He defeated the warlord Kimerios and moved to defend the northern pass from any
    Scythian reinforcements.





    Couxollios then laid siege to the city, choosing to attack on a freezing winter night. The Scythian arrows were useless against the walls of our great towers and the Volcae
    overpowered the defenders. After bloody close combat our warriors were able to force the gates and let the cavalry finish the job.









    After destroying the remaining Scythian forces in the area Villaorix and Setubogios returned to Noreia. Eburonum was given to the Cimbri. Cuoxollios and the Volcae moved north
    to punish the Scythians yet again for their treachery. This was to be a lesson they would find it more difficult to recover from.



    After a long and difficult march north they took the Scythian town of Campus Venedae with little resistance. Seeking to inflame age old rivalries, Cuoxollios
    expelled the Scythian rulers and left the local Cimbri chieftain in charge, moving south before the winter was out.



    Even far from familiar territory our warriors were at home in the forest and managed to ambush and destroy entirely a large Scythian force north of Carrodunon.





    Their position revealed, they were set upon by another Scythian army but easily defeated the warlord Hurzad.





    Finally, in 727AUC they took Carrodunon from Scythia, allowing the Cimbri chieftains to take control.



    Cuoxollios and his men made their way back to Noreia, raiding Scythian villages on the way. So much destruction did they cause that the town of Leucaristus,
    fearing for its own safety, rebelled against its Scythian rulers. Cuoxollios Of Cenebaum had inflicted great damage on our enemies and we are rightly feared.



    The year is now 730AUC. Noreia has survived yet another invasion and her defences are stronger than ever. In the south Rome still raises her armies for an
    assault on the city. However, with Scythia now weakened we are confident of victory.

    Carthage has completed its conquest of Iberia. We have declared ourselves allies with that mighty empire but it would be foolish to lower our guard - their
    territory is vast and their armies great in number. If they are to turn their eyes on Gaul we will be prepared.

    And I decided it was enough with the carthagian march, so I played at them a bit behind the scences, fueling my treassury to the remains of the Cimbri and the Romans.
    Unfortunately...
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    It wasn't nearly enough, and Cimbri got decimated and extinct... Where as Rome still hangs onto the boottip of italy with their fingertips... Meanwhile, I've been sending some spies to the newly amassed Carthagian lands, and they've so far been busy with quelling rebellions and retaking settlements from rebels... However, that's so far only been enough to delay the giant from Africa. I guess I'll have to put my money on either Sparta or Dacia, whoever gets into the fire first.
    As for my own regions, it's been quiet in the south, the same 3 nations still have a bloody battle.
    Seleucia and Babylonia are constantly under siege by the Parthians, while Palmyra is constantly under siege by the Ptolomys.
    To the north, I've been having some skirmishes with the Sarmatians, and have taken some of their lands, slowly, but the number of pops in the settlements, along with the distance to my capital is making it difficult to keep under my control... Besides, horsebased enemies are annoying.

    Dibbles, im curious as to how you managed to defeat Scythian armies with little over than 200 casualties. If im not mistaken Scythia is mostly a horse archer faction and your armies seem infantry based.

    Well Grimbold i must disagree.
    From my previous encounters with the Scythians, they seem to recruit en masse scythian spearmen and those slavic levies.They do have some cavalry, but it seems that they hardly recruit them.(not as much as they should in my oppinion.).

    Hwy dibbles, could you ,if possible, post your current savegame and under what settings you play the campain, i would like to give yours a try.

    Predator salutes you!

    Allying with Sarmatia in 2.5 is the signal for a cconquest race between you and them They usually turtle for the first 300 turns, then go on a rampage, and at that point, you don't want to fight dozens of stacks of horsearchers.

    Oddly enough that seems to occur when you have a FL with enough commanding stars... and even more odd, I believe the description says that Hannibal serves the Armenian king...
    I've yet to see him as Armenians even.

    It shouldn't be only for the Seleucids .What Grimbold said is correct ,Hannibal fled to Antiochus III and if i remember correctly he was present at a battle (Magnetia or something similar) between Antiochus III and Rome.However he wasn't allowed to command the army and the romans won the battle.After than Hannibal goes to the Armenians and then to Bythinia where he suicides himself .I have played 2 campaigns with Armenia and i haven't seen the ancillary ,so it may be only for the Seleucids.

    I find this interesting.How do you think about it?



    These things are by far the best in Mods. These traits/retainers give a whole different sense to the game, not just conquering every province.

    It feels like an RPG with characters good, bad, evil, stupid, paranoid, traitors and so much more.

    And now we see Antiochos has Hannibal as an Advisor, just like in reality.

    This shows respect to history and respect to players, both equally and too much important.

    My username explains a bit my entusiasm

    Congratulations for one more time RS team, you show everyone how things should be done

    Chokepoint with missile heavy infrantry army Then sinply bulk ahead with massive armies that entice them to not really attack the stacks on the march.
    Once you've sent 1 army to besiege a city, have the other armies roam around and pick off archers.

    the tactic varies on nation, but I loathe horsearchers, besides, the Sarmatians have some of the best, so you're bound to suffer more casualties unless you isolate and and overpower.

    Ambushes have been successfull tactic for me, positioning some infantry or cavalry to cut off and disrupt their formation, while the main line entices the enemy to advance and leave the ambushing forces to pick off the units they managed to break from formation.
    But really, I prefer to use archers against them. keeping a solid line while trying to pick off enemy units a bit at a time... It's bloody business.

    They have been sending mostly infantry armies at me. One or two units of HAs per stack max. The most annoying unit they have is the Royal Infantry which is an archer unit w/spears. I do not enjoy fighting Scythia.

    EDIT: I just had another look at the update. Its actually rare that i got away with that little casualties. I was even soundly defeated a couple of times!

    @Sertorio Thanks! I've been trying to balance it through giving tribute to neighbours. Luckily Sparte went East and will be occupied there for a long time. Carthage is now at my border. They are the strongest faction.

    @First Citizen Galleinus Do you mean because there are so many screenshots or that i am taking ages in between updates?

    @Predator1994 Yes i would be happy to post the save game! Can you remind me how one does that?
