    Nice victory. But if that army makes a sortie, Nepos is done for.

    My Pontus game, Hard campaign / Hard Battles.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 



    At war with the Seleucid Empire and Armenia, with Pergamon destroyed.

    After a prolonged initial period where my kingdom - center of asia minor - was being attacked on all fronts, i finally managed to push Pergamon back and subjugate them.

    Now im trying to simultaneously expand and consolidate my holdings in the east.

    What i truly want to do is avoid deep eastern expansion and expand west, setting Italy has my western border.

    Things in the west were/are a bit messy. Initially the Gallaeci had expanded north and controlled all of southern Gaul, included the Avernii capital of Gergovia. An alliance between Rome and Carthage followed, and the romans expelled the Iberians out of Gaul. Later on the Avernii moved south in an attempt to reclaim their lost territory.

    The Macedonians finally made a move north and are now at war with Rome. Curious to see how far that goes.

    In other news, the AI is, once again, stupid. Why?

    Well Macedon decided to attack me!!! and they were going to war with Rome. They were fighting for Segestica for a few turns.

    And i didn't even do anything! I obviously declined Rome's appeal for an alliance, which would then be a direct affront to Macedon. I even funneled money to them so they could proceed into Italy without any issue.

    But nooooooo, here Pontus, let me blockade one of your ports so we can get something going!

    Update on my Averni campaign. I've included the previous posts.

    I made a move on Roman territory and pushed them back to the peninsula, giving captured settlements to Scythia. It ends in disaster.

    1st update:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    gif hosting

    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.

    image upload

    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.

    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.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    At the end of 650, Rome is on the ropes. Leading one of the armies Tydeides of the Eagles, storms trough Capua, then Rome for wich is awarded the title "Conqueror of Rome".
    The push leads his army to Genoa taking every citie in his way.
    Another army moves up the east coast, destroying the last legion in his way and consolidating the conquest of Italy. After that with Rome confined to the uper regions in the North, i force them to acept the status of client state (force diplomacy here). The "Second Roman War" has ended.

    But thats not the end. Our spies report the growing power of the Greek Cities and Timaseon Oea a great leader, orders that greeks must come next. While keeping them at bay near the city of Lepsis Magna, Carthage orders the italian armies to march to Illyria. A new campaign begins. At the head of a recruited Galic army, Tydeides storms Massilia.

    Just wondering, many of the stacks I have seen have gold chevroned units all at the same level (basically they look a bit artificial). Is this giving them experience or have they really earned it the hard way so evenly?

    This is not an attack, I am merely curious,

    There is some kind of cheat you can do to create units with gold exp. and/or weapons and armor. However I don't believe that anyone who posts picts in this thread cheats to get the empires they show.

    I have been doing a new campaign with the new path 2.5
    I chose a new nation for the trill of it
    I always play on vh/vh with no time limit on battles.
    No auto safe, and all other things to make it run well.

    Well i chose Galatia they are strong warriors, but far from there home.
    I know that sooner or later i am going to face mass stacks of pikes or elephants.
    So i plan for worse care scenario, "that i will be killed there".
    To counter that, and to get ready to hold em back longer i go on a strike.
    Attacking in 14 turns the 3 settlements to the south.
    I lose a lot man power but replace them quickly, and got the 3 settlements.
    Now my base is set with 6 city`s and a steady income.
    I upgrade building that improve loyalty and tax.
    Roads+walls of-course too.
    After that i set off with my Rulers son and the best army i have a full stack.
    I march into Pergamon territory, they complain and warn me. but i march on into the land of the faro.
    And from there into lands of Marcedon, and Darian- and onwards to Bori land.
    I plan to hit and take there capitol in one blow, so i also have 4 leader and 4 def army + 2 archer in other stack with me, as-well as 4 super spy`s " well 5 star spy`s" and 1 Diplomat.
    But things did not go at planed.
    Once i was in there land, they attacked me right away, my small support force had to retread.
    My full stack was attacked, witch i won very easy
    But i was attacked right away again, i won again pretty easy.
    My scouts saw that 4 more stacks was moving my way
    So it was time to chance the plan a bit.
    I used all spy`s on there settlement near me, attacked it and won easy.
    Moved out, and in with the support army that was made to hold 1 city.
    I then took a look at there army`s, and moved 2 officers just outside the range of there movements.
    Moved my no longer full stack into the forest to hide.
    Result was that 2 of there stacks followed one on my officers, 1 stack vent to lay siege to my new city, and the last one stayed put.
    New turn, i tested my movement, and saw that i was able to hit there capitol, so i sent of my scouts to open its gates, attacked erased it to the ground" killed all that i was able to".
    Moved my officers away from harm, used the diplomat to sue em for peace
    They refused, but asked for the small city back and 22ooo+ money back.
    Witch i of-course refused, that had been no victory
    Instead on new turn i asked with money my ally`s the Dacian to attack the Bori " it only cost me 3000" witch they did
    Now that the bori was at war with them, i ask for peace again, and they agreed
    The Bori took one of there city`s and moved on to take a rebel city a bit north.
    Now all this sounds good right, but no, soon after i moved my only army " the full stack" out from my start land, Selicoid`s spy`s was all over my land, and soon there many army`s too.
    Now they have chosen to attack, i have made a new full stack there.
    But they now have 3 there.
    The pictures will show how things look now.
    4 pic will be added soon.


    "For some reason postyourpictures do`t work today ?"
    I will try again later, and keep playing so there will be an update soon after.

    2 pic ally screen and income screen too here.
    And before next i will also do what others haven`t, make a screen on nation wealth so you all can see that i have not cheated in any way.
    No force dipo used, no fast build and 1turn recruitment.
    Also i never use auto battle ,i fight all battles.

    Lets me know what you guys think, also if you know about a place to upload pictures let me know asap.
    I expect great new things in this mod
