    Re: Reforms

    I haven't played myself for awhile but recommended DEI to a few friends and the one question have been asked multiple times that I can't figure out is how to increase Imperium.

    Re: Horse archer armies

    Yes, DEI did great here- HA still very powerful but really unlikely to absolutely destroy enemy armies on their own unlike in most TW base games and mods.

    Kestrophendones

    Kestrophendones and Tarantines are my favorites close to Italy while the gastrophones or crossbowmen are pretty good as well.
  4. Re: A New Legendary Lord for Norsca, a reward for waiting

    Norsca was a bit of a mistake but honestly not horrible in my opinion. You can still play Norsca in Warhammer 1 so it isn't LITERALLY UNPLAYABLE while CA has given out quite a few free lords etc. I'd...
