This might have already been answered, and sorry for being a nag, but will EB2(modded M2; TW) with the additional 10 faction slots be released, or has there been any news about it?
Afraid not my friend. You see MTW2 battle models are made using a different kind of file than RTW battle models.(Which means one can't just "port" EB units over to MTW2...not yet anyway..... )
BTW, I was wondering who the other EB fans would like to see fill up those ten extra faction slots. My votes go to:
1.A Goidilic(sp?) tribe.(Would be unique and give the Casse a rival on the isles )
2.Another Iberian tribe.
5.Another Germanic tribe.(Its too quite up there!)
Well thats all I can think of but I'm sure the EB team will sort it out.:hmmm:
Under the patronage of Basileos Leandros I
Here are mine:
3. Another Iberian tribe (perhaps Celtiberians or some such?)
4. Belgae (or some other Gallic tribe)
5. Chatti (or some other German tribe)
6. Mashiliem (or some other Numidian kingdom)
7. Chandragupta Maurya (I realise that this would require an extension of the map - in case this is impossible, I go for Gandhara)
8. Ardiaei (or some other Illyrian tribe)
10. Roman Rebels

How about these (with their correct names of course):
Some british tribe
Rebels that spawn for Romans
Rebels that spawn for someone else (Seleukids maybe?)
Rebels that spawn for yet another faction (Qarthadastim?)
Alright then, if we're going for counter factions (and that does, I think, seem reasonable), then here's my revised list:
3. Some other Iberian tribe (Turdetani? Celtiberi?)
5. Some other German tribe (Chatti?)
8. Roman Rebels
9. Ptolemaic Rebels
10. Seleucid Rebels
I would very much like to see the following units:
2.Pergamus( althought i seem to remember that this kingdom was created later than the starting date of the game)
3.numibia(made many problems for the romans after the fall of carthage)
5.massalia as an independent greek faction since it was a proeminent city in the western meditteranean sea
6.another iberian faction
7.maybe scotts in the latter years of the game
Mamertines were not "rebels" as such. At the beginning they were a loose group of Campanian mercenaries who were hired by King Agatholes of Syracuse. But when he died in 289 B.C they went on the rampage around Scily, some say as far as Gela and captured Messana. To cut a long story short they were the catalyst's of the first Punic war.

Well,since Med 2 is a big change from RTW ,would the EB team need help? ,I volunteer myself in joining the EB team, just pm me if you need more people to work on EB2... would gladly help to create a stunning new conversion of MED2 .
In thinking about this I could see the big difference in battle map ,rather than a an army that look like clones .... you could see the different background of the soldiers such as Hannibal's army of Carthaginian Gauls ,African and Iberians. This really creates a new sense of a mercenary army
