  2. Re: Settlement central square and morale of defending units

    Concerning siege offense - you can pick off the AI defenders before they entrench themselves in the square. You need to surround the enemy unit and rout it. You just need to be slow and meticulous...

  4. Re: Why no 90 degrees shield rotation for Celtic cavalrymen?

    The original method of thureos positioning looks much, much better than the current method, IMHO.

    The Astur-Cantabrians! Good work!
    The flat shield boss with a cross symbol is interesting.

    Lakonikoi are a reform unit. As KH, you're supposed to upgrade your polis and/or farms in Sparta or something like that.

    Re: EBII Carthaginian test campaign - Test video

    Do captains trigger the script, or is it just FMs? I don't retrain units at all. That means I sometimes have to keep spent units outside of cities to avoid the auto-retrain feature (GLITCH!) when I...

    Re: Iberian Linen armor

    If the leather isn't hardened in some way, its protective value is dubious, methinks.

    These books were recommended to me. I have yet to read them, though.

    New Gallaecian infantry look nice :)

    1. They're spearmen now?

    2. Will there be a late version?

    3. What kind of belt are they wearing? I am not asking about the baldric.

    You are not taking into account some important things:

    I have one interesting observation about two handed swords from Serbia - few of them have narrow, needle like points. To me, that suggests that they were mostly used like big swords ought to be used...
