  1. Re: The War Council is hereby convened - Invasion: Britannia

    The weirdos are my priests lol. I was trying to preach the word of the Holy Light to the ice trolls :D
  2. Re: The War Council is hereby convened - Invasion: Britannia

    In a different mod, I invaded a continent with 12 full stacks. Training them, the navy required to transport them safely and the agents that helped pave the way was a huge task. Assembling them into...
  3. Re: The War Council is hereby convened - Invasion: Britannia

    This is the largest invasion in the history of TW games. No way I'm not seeing this through :D

    Eburones cavalry

    Although they have no missile attack, they do have javelins for melee.

    Has the invasion started?

    I don't think so. They are too different in style. That being said, I am all for a new late version :D

    What about the mail armor? I haven't seen mail in a tube and yoke pattern before.

    Yup, I love the new colors, the gear and the variety. I hope the unit card gets redone as well.

    Reworked Celtiberian spearmen. I guess we will see the new swordsmen as well.

    I like it. The original version was too heavily armored in my opinion. This one is more colorful, the shields and clothes are awesome. I am still waiting for my detailed in-game zoom test, but I...

    New Celtiberian unit looks great! Will it be available from the start?

    P.S. Once again, I gotta ask. What's with the spola style mail armor?

    Re: Roman FMs and their hatred for games/races

    I have played a shortish Roman campaign (200-300 turns, methinks) and none of my FMs actually liked the games/races.
  14. Re: What are your tactics/strategies when fighting the Romans?

    That is dishonorabru!

    I do that every time I get a chance to.

    Well, some people mature faster than others, I guess :)
  16. Re: Rad looks at things - a thread for visual improvements

    The mail armor on the late Illergete Spearmen is very interesting. Instead of a shirt with an extra layer on the shoulders, it appears to be mail version of the tube and yoke armor.

    What was it...
  17. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    As far as I know, from some time after the Norman conquest and through the middle ages. The law could still be in effect today unless someone bothered to abolish it.



    It really depends on...
  18. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    There is nothing to apologize for, mate :D
    To me, the greatest advantage of professional troops isn't increased combat effectiveness, it's availability. Their primary duty is to fight. They are...
  19. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    Not necessarily. Campaign or no campaign, they would have good equipment and a lot of training. Some would choose to stay on campaign for longer periods out of personal interest. I just wanted to...
  20. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    I am going to argue against that, at least when it comes to the middle ages. For example, a knight in England was only obliged to do military service 40 days per year. 40 days out of 365 days. That's...
  21. Re: What are your tactics/strategies when fighting the Romans?

    Shoot them up, then charge them from the flanks and center. Destroy their cavalry first if you can. I disagree with nvm - Roman cavalry is decent.

    Re: Iberian Linen armor

    Without going into the history of it, I'll tell you this. It's dirt cheap compared to metal armor and your grandma can make it.
  23. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    Professional - engaged in a specified activity as one's main paid occupation rather than as an amateur.

    Levies aren't professionals. Their primary job is to produce goods and services....
  24. Re: The War Council is hereby convened - Invasion: Britannia

    In my 2.35 campaigns, Gauls is a battleground for Rome, Sweboz, Pritanoi and the Celtiberians. Aedui and Arverni can't catch a break.

    Give us the late Illergete Spearmen and there won't be trouble!
  26. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    The Romans are a good example because more people are familiar with their military. That being said, the 180 degree switcheroo the Macedonians did is a great example.
  27. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    Most of us probably do overestimate the fighting capability of the ancient pros, in varying degrees. I believe that all other things being equal, a professional force would rout a levy force of the...
  28. Re: The War Council is hereby convened - Invasion: Britannia

    I did something similar in Warcraft total war, it took a month. You have it worse, though - the British Isles are a lot smaller than Northrend.

    I'm not sure you have enough troops, honestly. Looks...

    The topics of the subject are the advantages and disadvantages of various military systems. One of the possible disadvantages of a professional fighting force in the hellenistic period is that they...
  30. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    They were supposed to fight for and be loyal to the People and the Senate of Rome, not the individual generals that paid them. That's the trouble.
    Today, the state pays the army, as it should.
  31. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    Again, missing the point. There is not one post that states that professional soldiers are less organised/disciplined/effective. Roman professional soldiers were loyal... to the people that paid them.
  32. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    The loyalty of the army. The professional soldiers of Rome were not loyal to the state of Rome, but to the individuals that paid them.
  33. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    You're missing the point. The state made the mistake of refusing to pay for those soldiers. Private individuals stepped up and took those costs on themselves. They took the responsibility of...
  34. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    The Romans did not have a professional army until the end of the 2nd century BC (roughly speaking). The fact that Rome paid soldiers while they were on campaign does not change that. It can only be...
  35. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    Yeah, it pretty much decided everything happening afterwards. Rome (the state/government) made one crucial mistake. It refused to bear the costs of raising, maintaining and disbanding those soldiers....
  36. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    Soldiers followed the money instead of the idea. Bad for republics :)
  37. Re: The supposed widespread adoption, by Sparta and other city-states, of the Pileus/Pilos helmet is plainly unfounded?

    Roma, what you need is to break the system. Some puny forum cannot hold back such a force of nature!


    The Pilos is one of my favorite types of helmet, btw.
  38. Re: Professional Armies vs Warrior Aristocracies vs Military Levies

    You also have to factor in the era we're talking about. The Romans got a professional army with the Marian reforms and look what that got them. They went from a glorious Republic to a crappy Empire...

    Advantages: Due to constant training and experience, they should be highly competent and disciplined soldiers.

    Disadvantages: Expensive to...
  40. Re: Agema Phalangitai for Epeiros is the best looking unit in the game, and you're not allowed to disagree in this thread. That's right. I said NO.

    So, will Epeiros be initially devoid of all Agema units, or just the phalangites?
